Read by Grover Gardner

The Pursuit of Pleasure is Not Optional, it is Essential

Piper openly credits (after Jesus and St. Paul) Jonathan Edwards and C. S. Lewis for his inspiration and maintains that it is our duty to delight and be happy in God.

Scripture reveals that the great business of life is to glorify God and enjoy 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. ____________________________

"Mind-hammering and heart-warming, Desiring God ignites a passion for God that would set the world ablaze if it were the norm and not the exception today."

-Os Guinness

"A modern manual of true spirituality."  

 -R. C. Sproul

"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,  

-J. I. Packer

"This book profoundly influenced my life."  

-Jerry Bridges ______________________________

Tell others about Jesus like John Piper does:

 Though we are not all called to the ministry of a Pastor, Foreign Missionary, Prominent Evangelist, or Christian Writer, we are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). _____________________________
