Book Review of the Pleasures of God

by Clint Walker

Book Ranking by Blogger: 4.0 Stars

John Piper has written extensively on many topics. Most notable, however, is his book Desiring God, which lays out the case for what he calls "Christian Hedonism". The book was a brilliant text, if for no other reason, than because it lays out a case for a joyful, loving Calvinist worldview. Basically, Piper makes the argument that the holy life and the God-obedient life is also the most pleasurable way to live. I read it in college and LOVED... Read More


The Pleasures of Pleasures of God

by Aaron Davis

Book Ranking by Blogger: 5.0 Stars

The Pleasures of God is by far one of the great books of our generation. John Piper is not only a clear and easy to follow theologian, he has a zeal and enthusiasm for the Person of God that is contagious. The genre of this book is hard to peg. Its theology runs deep - very deep, yet it is at the same time devotional; it stretches the intellect but cuts straight to the heart. Piper's style is truly unique. His convictions are unashamedly...

The Pleasures of God - John Piper

by Andrew Joyce

But this book is different from all the rest in that I finished it. More than finished it: I enjoyed it. John Piper is good at great titles for his books:... Read More


Review of The Pleasures of God, by John Piper

by Jack Gandy

Book Ranking by Blogger: 4.0 Stars

John Piper stands out as one of the few writers who has been able to merge passion with scholarship. The Pleasures of God is no exception to this. In His characteristic style, Piper forces us to expand our horizons, and to delve into the deep waters of spiritual truth. This is a book which cannot be read quickly, as is the case with so much that is on our bookshelves today. Yet for those who will take the time to dig into what he has to say,... Read More


The Pleasures of God

by Dr. Heath E. Marion

Book Ranking by Blogger: 5.0 Stars

This a great theological book. From the beginning of the book the reader is challenged with this statement, "There never has been an era when too many people thought too deeply about God or knew him too well. It is impossible to know God too well." The pursuit of this book is to understand, "The good news of God's gladness in being God." Each chapter heightens the understanding of what God finds pleasure in. It may take readers by surprise... Read More
