Piper passionately argues that the good news of the gospel is that we are given the greatest gift imaginable: God himself.
Too often we reduce the gospel to being a free ticket to heaven or a key to spiritual blessings. But the good news of Jesus Christ is deeper, more profound, and more wonderful than we realize.
The wonder and majesty of the gospel are that we are given the greatest gift imaginable: God himself. Piper unpacks the gospel to show that none of Christís gospel deeds and none of our gospel blessings are good news except as a means of exalting the glory of Christ.
Biblically faithful and radically God-centered, this book leads to satisfaction for the deep hungers of the soul. The glorious truth that God is the gospel touches us at the root of life where practical transformation gets its daily power. It awakens our longing for Christ and opens our eyes to his beauty. Join Piper as he leads us to worship and treasure Christ, the ultimate gift of the gospel. Now available in paperback.
ONE OF MY FAVORITES EVER!!!| Posted August 27, 2013
This book by Piper is one of my personal favorites and is definitely one of my top 10 books I have read, and possibly top 5. It's so easy this day and age to believe that everything God does is about us instead of being about him. In this book Piper reminds us that the greatest gift God gives and the one Christ died for us to have is the gift of Himself. This book has probably the most convicting single chapter I have ever read in any book outside of the Bible. Yet once again Piper manages to take communicate sound theological truth in a well reasoned manner with a simplicity that is easily accessible to most readers. Highly Recommend!!!
