By John Piper-- For over twenty-five years John Piper has trumpeted the truth that God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him. He calls it Christian Hedonism. The problem is that many people, after being persuaded, find that this truth is both liberating and devastating.

It’sliberating because it endorses our inborn desirefor joy. And it’s devastating because it reveals that we don’t desire God the way we should. What doyou do when you discover the good news that God wants you to be content in him, but then find thatyou aren’t?

If joy in God were merely the icing on the cake of Christian commitment, this bookwould be insignificant. But Piper argues that joyis so much more. Our being satisfied in God is necessary to show God’s worthiness and to sustain sacrifices of love.

Jesus endured the cross forthe joy that was set before him. He tasted it. Itsustained him through the deepest suffering. His Father was glorified. His people were saved. That is what joy in God does.

The absolutely urgentquestion becomes: What can I do if I don’t have it? With a pastor’s heart and with radical passionfor the glory of Christ, John Piper helps you answer that question.
