About The Book
For 25 years, pastor John Piper has been provoking Christians with the simple but paradigm-shattering truth that God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him.
Satisfaction. Happiness. Joy. The pursuit of pleasure in God is not only permissible; it’s essential.
Building his message on hundreds of Scriptures, especially from the Psalms, the apostle Paul, and Jesus himself—and echoing the likes of Blaise Pascal, Jonathan Edwards, and C.S. Lewis—Piper beckons us to approach God with the hedonist’s abandon. Finally, we are freed to enjoy Jesus not only as our Lord and Savior, but also our all-surpassing, soul-satisfying Treasure.
As important today as ever, Desiring God may turn your Christian world upside down. And that will be a good thing, for the glory of God, and for your deepest joy.
This 25th-anniversary reference edition includes an updated introduction by John Piper, appendices and supplemental resources, and brief testimonials from readers profoundly affected by Desiring God.
