For over twenty-five years John Piper has trumpeted the truththat "God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied inhim." He calls it Christian Hedonism. The problem is that manypeople, after being persuaded, find that this truth is bothliberating and devastating. It's liberating because it endorses our inborn desire for joy.And it's devastating because it reveals that we don't desire Godthe way we should. What do you do when you discover the good newsthat God wants you to be content in him, but then find that youaren't? If joy in God were merely the icing on the cake of Christiancommitment, this book would be insignificant. But Piper argues thatjoy is so much more. Our being satisfied in God is necessary toshow God's worthiness and to sustain sacrifices of love. Jesus endured the cross for the joy that was set before him. Hetasted it. It sustained him through the deepest suffering. HisFather was glorified. His people were saved. That is what joy inGod does. The absolutely urgent question becomes: What can I do if I don'thave it? With a pastor's heart and with radical passion for theglory of Christ, John Piper helps you answer that question.Piper, John is the author of 'When I Don't Desire God How to Fight for Joy', published 2004 under ISBN 9781581346527 and ISBN 1581346522.
