The Pleasures of God
Meditations on God’s Delight in Being 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.” The Pleasures of God is not a book about you. It’s about the One you were made for — God Himself. Author 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.
