5.0 out of 5 stars feeding your soul, May 9, 2012
This review is from: The Pleasures of God: Meditations on God's Delight in Being God (Paperback)
John PIper has once again provided God's people with a God-focused, powerful and valuable resource, The Pleasures of God. Piper's aim is to exegete Scripture and show who and what are the people and events that God delights in, so that the reader would know and love God more. It is laid out in nine chapters, the first six focused on God Himself, His fame, son, bruising of His son, His creation and election of His people, and the last three focused on His people's hope, prayer, and obedience. The chapter on prayer alone is worth the price of the book. Each chapter is passionately written and moving for the reader to see and savor God in all He is and does. Piper relates personal stories, events from church history, and biographies in his writing, which feeds the soul and gives a big vision of God. Plentiful footnotes, appendices and a study guide are provided. This book cannot be recommended more highly for any of God's people, as new or seasoned believers, to refresh a tired walk or strengthen a walk already rich with His presence.

I received this book free from the publisher for the purpose of review. I was not required to write a positive review.
