Desiring God
Meditations of a Christian Hedonist (Third Edition)
by John Piper | Genre: Christian Living
Release Date: April 2003
 

The message of Desiring God is that God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him. In this book, Piper calls this worldview "Christian Hedonism" and explains why pursuing maximum joy is essential to glorifying God. He discusses the implications of this for conversion, worship, love, Scripture, prayer, money, marriage, missions, and suffering.

One of the Best Books I have ever Read | Posted August 27, 2013
When Christianity Today did a list of the top 100 books of the 20th century this was one of two by this author and for good reason.  This is definitely in my top 10 of best books I've ever read.  I read pretty much anything John Piper writes because I have yet to read any of his books that weren't well worth the time and money.  This is the crown jewel if you will of John Piper's writings.  In it you he starts with the premise that "God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him."  Then he explains how that relates to and expresses itself in life.  Piper combines deep theological thought with practical application in a style that is easy to read.  This book is not fluff!!  That said, it is also very easy to read. Highly recommended for the thinking Christian.

Desiring God | Posted December 04, 2008
This book really showed me a lot about being a Christian. We should desire to follow God rather than doing it out of obligation. It should be a joy, not a chore. I enjoyed this read and recommend it.

Challenging but worthwhile | Posted May 31, 2008
In desiring God, John Piper presents some thoughts about what it means to enjoy and glorify god. It is a challenging read, it took me several readings to get my head around it. I think it is worth the effort and time to ponder on what he says
