Publisher's Summary

What do you do when you discover that you're not satisfied in God the way he wants you to be? Joy is more than an afterthought of the Christian life; it is the sustaining fruit of a relationship with God. With a radical passion for Christ's glory, John Piper helps you find the joy God wants you to have.

Spiritual awakening in a book!

I've been looking for this book for a long time - I just didn't know it.

I've been looking for a book about how to draw nearer to God, how to find out what God wants, how to live a life that will please God.

I know...I know...just read the Bible. I do. I also find that supplemental material from other Christians is very useful.

This is the most useful book about Christianity other than the Bible that I have ever read! After the Bible itself, this would be my number one pick for my bookshelf. Yes - it would even supplant some C.S. Lewis material.

John Piper examines it all - prayer, purpose, and life. He does so under the spotlight of joy - God's joy and our joy. He takes the discussion away from the clutter of theological terminology by focusing on joy - that often overlooked aspect of our faith.

Don't get me wrong. This book is comprehensive and well researched - he often quotes other authors (including C.S. Lewis), and his teaching is Biblically based. He just keeps it focused by concentrating his efforts on the topic of joy. His style is not as conversational as that of some other authors, but he strikes the right chord.

I would recommend this book for anyone. I will be listening to this book again many times over because I think I've just become addicted to true joy.

Wonderful encouragement

The first several chapters about the theology of joy and desire changed my life. And the last chapters on practical application are wonderful. This book normalized my times of lacking joy, showed me that joy in the christian life is something that must be cultivated, and then taught me how to cultivate.

Joy & Satisfaction in Pursuing God

Release the truth of Logos to pursue enjoyment in God as the only way to glorify God. Not easy doctrine to understand Soli Deo Gloria.
