Desiring God

I have recently finished reviewing Desiring God, a DVD Study, by John Piper.  Quoting Piper, "God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him."  So simple, yet so profound.  Piper supports this premise scripturally and it is a result of many years of study. John Piper is the Pastor for Preaching and Vision at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  This DVD presentation is set up as a 5 hour topical study to a small audience.  While the trappings of this presentation were a bit less sophisticated (use of overhead projector as opposed to powerpoint), Piper's delivery was both personable and engaging.  I found the message of this text both challenging and thrilling. 

From the back of the study guide - "This study guide companion to the DVD version of Desiring God - the classic explanation of Christian hedonism by John Piper - will help individuals and groups understand that the supreme calling of life is to "glorify God by enjoing Him forever." "

I received a complementary copy of this book for review from   The opinions are my own.
