Changes your mind-set! Excellent book!

Very uplifting book! Elements of this joyful mindset as a pursuit have been familiar to me, but the Scriptural reasoning behind pursuing joy as a duty is not only freeing, but possible AND exciting! Piper wonderfully plucks the splinter out of the reader's eye, even as he might've been viewing it as several logs blocking his whole vision beforehand. Piper manages to capture much of how Christians think and shows the contrasting mindset of pursuing joy as commanded of us. He also pulls apart the cultural emotions that are seemingly fused together, such as joy & comfort, while uniting others that we might have difficulty seeing together, such as joy and suffering. Eloquently stated with Scriptual reasoning and wisdom as support, Piper helps to throw off the yoke of slavery that so easily entangles us that we might be able to run with the joy of Christ set before us!
