THE PURSUIT OF PLEASURE IS NOT OPTIONAL. IT IS ESSENTIAL.
Scripture reveals that the great business of life is to glorify God by enjoying Him forever. In this paradigm-shattering work, John Piper reveals that the debate between duty and delight doesn't truly exist: Delight is our duty. Join him as he unveils stunning, life-impacting truths you saw in the Bible but never dared to believe.
Desiring God is a paradigm-shattering work that dramatically alters common perspectives on relating to God. Piper reveals that there really is no need to choose between duty and delight in the Christian life. In fact, for the follower of Jesus, delight is the duty as Christ is most magnified in His people when they are most satisfied in Him.
"A modern manual of true spirituality." -R.C. Sproul
"The communion of a longing soul and a satisfying Christ is at the center of God's plan. Piper makes this overlooked, contradicted, trivialized, and sentimentalized message clear and compelling. Desiring God is a classic-now it's even richer." -Larry Crabb
"The healthy biblical realism of this study in Christian motivation comes as a breath of fresh air. Jonathan Edwards, whose ghost walks through most of Piper's pages, would be delighted with his disciple." -J.I. Packer
"This book profoundly influenced my life." -Jerry Bridges
