The Pleasures Of God – John Piper

This is one of Pastor Piper’s older books, but is still one of his best.  I recently re-read it and was just as moved this time through as I was almost a decade ago during college.  We need to delight in God.  How do we do this?  Well to start with we have to understand that God most delights in Himself.  This has long been the driving force for Piper and he lays out this vision clearly and compelling in this book.  I encourage you to read it, but whatever you do not rush through it.  Take your time, soak in the wisdom, journal through it, pray through it.  If you do so you will gain not only a greater understanding of God, but a deeper love and more joy found within that love.
