Taste and See

Savoring the Supremacy of God in All of Life

by

“Savor the incomparable trustworthiness of God’s promises.” –John Piper

Taste and see that the Lord is good! (Psalm 34:8)

Spiritual hunger longs for rich, substantial nourishment, which is amply served in this collection of solid meat and sweet milk from God’s word. Skillfully prepared by pastor and author John Piper, these contemporary meditations will whet your appetite for more of God himself and bring refreshment in your daily communion with Christ.

Piper asks hard questions and finds poignant but practical truths from the Bible on topics as diverse as adoption, God’s sovereignty, body image, retirement, hypocrisy, prayer, mental health, computer usage, assurance, gender, race, gay marriage, rest, and many more.

Piper notes, “We taste the sweetness of God as he meets us in his word. What I have written here is partly meditations on biblical reality and partly applications to contemporary life. I hope that what pervades all the readings is a savoring of the supremacy of God.”

This substantive spiritual food will brace your mind with truth and nourish your heart with God’s satisfying grace. “How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” (Psalm 119:103).

“God’s omnipotent exuberance to do us good is one of the most freeing discoveries a human can make. Oh, that we might believe it and savor it and bring it to mind again and again until it is our very nature to feel the truth that the godly are designed for unknown and inconceivable happiness.”—John Piper
