Grover Gardner narrates with convincing clarity why God delights in being God and why He delights in His creation. Gardner also helps the listener understand why the Lord is pleased with His people, and why they should be pleased with the things that please God. Drawing upon St. Augustine and Jonathan Edwards, Gardner methodically explains Piper's reasoning with an easy-listening style, devoid of heavy theology but exquisitely balanced with scripture as its backbone. Listening to this CD is like sitting before Piper's pastoral teaching at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis. Strongly recommended for individuals hungry for more of God in their lives.

Beginning where the foundational truth of Desiring God left off, that "God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him," this expanded rerelease of another classic by John Piper will further explore a life-changing essential -- "We will be most satisfied in God when we know why God himself is most satisfied in God." Fully understanding the joy of God will draw the reader into an encounter with His overflowing, self-replenishing, all-encompassing grace -- the source of living water that all Christians desire to drink. The Pleasures of God will again put God at the center of Creation and leave the reader very satisfied in Him.
Be Most Satisfied in God…
Because GOD Is Most Satisfied in God.
You don’t truly know someone until you know what makes him happy. Our pleasure is the measure of our character. So it is with God. We can only know the greatness of His glory, if we know what makes Him glad. Therefore we must understand “the pleasures of God.”
This is not a book about you. It’s about the One you were made for—God Himself. In this theological tour de force, pastor John Piper navigates the biblical evidence to help us see and savor what the pleasures of God show us about Him, so that we might become like the One we behold.
What the church and world need today, more than anything else, is to know and love—behold and embrace—the great, glorious, sovereign, happy God of the Bible.
