The message of Desiring God is that God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him, that the great business of life is to glorify God by enjoying 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. He calls this worldview "Christian Hedonism" and explains why pursuing maximum joy is essential to glorifying God.
In this book, Piper discusses the implications of this worldview for conversion, worship, love, Scripture, prayer, money, marriage, missions, and suffering. Join him as he stuns you again and again with life-impacting truths you saw in the Bible, but never dared believe.
