The Dangerous Duty of Delight grounds the philosophy of Christian Hedonism thoroughly in both Scripture and in Christian history. Piper quotes numerous scriptures in the first few chapters to fortify his point. He also references luminaries such as Blaise Pascal, Jonathan Edwards, and C. S. Lewis. As a Reformed theologian he also spends an entire chapter on the answer to the first question of the Westminster Shorter Catechism which says that humanity's chief goal is to "glorify God and enjoy Him forever." He goes on to say that enjoying God is not simply an opportunity, but our duty as believers.
Much of the rest of the text of The Dangerous Duty of Delight is a guide on how to implement a life of Christian Hedonism. Piper focuses specifically on money, marriage, worship, and missions. Each of these areas of life, he argues, requires that we focus on the most joyful experience possible if we are to live in obedience to Christ. Although, it must be noted, that often the most pleasurable long-term result means delaying short-term gratification.
I enjoyed reading this text. Having read Desiring God several years ago, this book helpfully reminded me what I had learned. Having been a Christian Hedonist before I read Piper, I felt encouraged by his argument for Christianity as being the most pleasurable way of life for humanity to embrace. For those who are not familiar with Piper or Christian Hedonism, The Dangerous Duty of Delight would be an excellent resource to become more familiar with him.
