1) The Dangerous Duty of Delight: Daring to Make God Your Greatest Desire (LifeChange Books)



The Dangerous Duty of Delight: Daring to Make God Your Greatest Desire  is Pastor John Piper’s call for each of us to turn our heart toward the one true object of human desire and happiness: God. Published in 2001 by LifeChange Books, this is a short 100 page read, but full of a powerful call to personal action.


2) The Pleasures of God: Meditations on God’s Delight in Being God



Published in 2000 by Multnomah, this excellent Pastor John Piper book beseeches us to comprehend “the pleasures of God” through meditations and other means.  This is a true theological masterpiece and was selected by World Magazine as one of the 20th Century’s top 100 books.  Piper beautifully displays that has the wisdom to know what is most important in life and point us in that direction for ourselves.


3) Future Grace, Revised Edition: The Purifying Power of the Promises of God



Multnomah published the revised edition of Pastor John Piper’s foundational Future Grace, Revised Edition: The Purifying Power of the Promises of God in 2012.  In it, Piper reveals how grace is not only God’s undeserved gift to us in the past, but his gift for the future too.  Living by faith in future grace is the theme of this absorbing read. Reading this exposition of scripture is heart-changing and mind-illuminating.


4) Desiring God, Revised Edition: Meditations of a Christian Hedonist



Often described as a life changing book, Desiring God, Revised Edition: Meditations of a Christian Hedonist is Piper’s revelation that there is no need to choose between duty and delight in the Christian life.  This is Piper’s magnum opus on Christian’s obligations to find all of his/her delight, joy and satisfaction in God.
