Meditations of a Christian Hedonist
For a generation now, John Piper has been provoking Christians with the simple but paradigm-shattering truth that God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him.
Satisfaction. Happiness. Joy. The pursuit of pleasure in God is not only permissible; it’s essential.
Building his message on hundreds of Scriptures, especially from the Psalms, the apostle Paul, and Jesus himself — and echoing the likes of Blaise Pascal, Jonathan Edwards, and C.S. Lewis — Piper beckons us to approach God with the hedonist’s abandon. Finally, we are freed to enjoy Jesus not only as our Lord and Savior, but also our all-surpassing, soul-satisfying Treasure.
Desiring God may turn your Christian world upside down. And that will be a good thing, for the glory of God, and for your deepest joy.
