Description

This book is a cry from the heart of John Piper. He is pleading that God himself, as revealed in Christís death and resurrection, is the ultimate and greatest gift of the gospel.

None of Christís gospel deeds and none of our gospel blessings are good news except as means of seeing and savoring the glory of Christ. Forgiveness is good news because it opens the way to the enjoyment of God himself. Justification is good news because it wins access to the presence and pleasures of God himself. Eternal life is good news because it becomes the everlasting enjoyment of Christ.

All Godís gifts are loving only to the degree that they lead us to God himself. That is what Godís love is: his commitment to do everything necessary (most painfully the death of his only Son) to enthrall us with what is most deeply and durably satisfying Ė namely, himself.

Since 1980 John Piper has preached the supremacy of Christ in all things from the pulpit of Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis. His books include Desiring God and Crosswayís The Passion of Jesus Christ, Donít Waste Your Life, Seeing and Savoring Jesus Christ, and ECPA Gold Medallion winner Godís Passion for His Glory.
