Desiring God (Revised Edition)
This is the updated edition of Piper’s original Desiring God text. Piper’s stance is that “God is most glorified in us, when we are most satisfied in Him.” This is the basis for his Christian Hedonist position – which implies that all joy, wonder, awe & satisfaction in life cannot be found outside of God & His glory. In Christ alone all hope is found. He came to give life & life abundant & free.
Piper is a thinker & deep writer – who can at times explain himself to depths that a reader may began to misunderstand. I suggest this book for the reader who is a thinker & one who has time to digest portions of this text a little at a time.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
