Product Description

In his essay The End for Which God Created the World, the great theologian Jonathan Edwards proclaimed that God's ultimate end is the manifestation of his glory in the highest happiness of his creatures.

Pastor John Piper has devoted his years of ministry to exploring the implications of this stunning truth for life and ministry. Understanding that "God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him" has made all the difference for John Piperand can transform your life as well.

Here Piper passionately demonstrates the relevance of Edwards's ideals for the personal and public lives of Christians today through his own book-length introduction to Edwards's The End for Which God Created the World. This book also contains the complete essay supplemented by almost a hundred of Piper's insightful explanatory notes. The result is a powerful and persuasive presentation of the things that matter most in the Christian life.

Author Bio

John Piper (DTheol, University of Munich) is teacher and founder of desiringGod.org and chancellor of Bethlehem College and Seminary. He served for 33 years as pastor at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis and is author of more than 50 books, including Desiring God, Don’t Waste Your Life, This Momentary Marriage, Bloodlines, and Does God Desire All to Be Saved?

JONATHAN EDWARDS (1703–1758) was a pastor, theologian, and missionary. He is generally considered the greatest American theologian. A prolific writer, Edwards is known for his many sermons, including "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God", and his classic Treatise Concerning Religious Affections. Edwards was appointed president of the College of New Jersey (later renamed Princeton University) shortly before his death.

What more could a Christian reader ask for? God’s Passion for His Glory contains the complete text of Jonathan Edwards’ The End for Which God Created the World, illumined by John Piper’s enthralled and humble thoughts on this thesis. Two great Christian men, one of the greatest of contemporary Bible teachers, John Piper, and one of our great (if not the greatest) Bible teachers from American history, Jonathan Edwards, collaborate via the Holy Spirit to lift us ever closer to the Lord.
As in all of Piper’s books, the format is simple, the wording understandable, and the depths profound. Divided into two sections, each part flows into the other, leading the reader upwards. In Part One, Piper explains why he decided to publish this book, looks at Edwards’ physical and spiritual life, and considers the impact Edwards has on modern evangelical Christianity. Part Two explains how Piper has prepared this thesis for the reader, suggests methods of reading, and takes a look at the particular edition Piper chose to use. Edwards’ The End for Which God Created the World then follows, replete with footnotes. Several effective indices conclude this volume.
This in-depth look at the foundation of our passion for God is crucial reading. Piper’s books are dedicated to leading us into ever-growing desire for God. God’s Passion for His Glory capably achieves this aim. This is a book to take your time reading. You'll find value in pausing now and then while reading to think, meditate, pray, and to wait before your Lord. – Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews.com

    This was not an easy read, but don't let that stop you. I highly recommend reading this. Jonathan Edwards was a brilliant man and an eloquent writer. His theology is air-tight and his love for God is evident throughout this work. Thank you Pastor J. Piper for introducing me to The End For Which God Created The World.
