    This book is really amazing. It points out and states well, our desires and how we can live a more full life in Christ.

    "The benefits of knowing God more fully and deeply in this way are many. This is what our minds and hearts are made for - to know and love God." (page XVII - yes this is in the preface!) My understanding of this book's purpose is to guide believers to better understand what gives God pleasure, so we can better know Him.

    There are so many truths and ideas "put out there" in this book, you really need to read it for yourself {with a notebook and pen/pencil in hand}. I wonder how much of my comprehension is based on personal experiences. This is not a quick read, but you will not regret your time spent reading.

    So this was my first time reading anything by John Piper. I knew I'd love his writings because I've read countless quotes by him, but I did not know how this book would be perfect for my life right now. Don't you just love God's timing?! ;)

    At the beginning of the book several people (including John himself) suggest you read the book one time slowly and then read it again to really grasp what you just read. Well, I'm still in the process of reading this book slowly!! It's soo good, but filled with tons of deep material and it's difficult to grasp if you're reading it like a bat out of the other world. Haha!

    I've heard it said many times in my life that it's "not about me", but until this year, I still believed that it did. As I've been going through the hurt of knowing it's not about me (hello! we're selfish from BIRTH!) this book came along and it just helped drive it home! Piper talks about how we are created by God FOR God (Colossians 1:15-16) and then he begins talking about God's delight in being God. It's truly mind blowing and all the Scripture that he brings with it... it's like I've read these verses so many times in my life and just now realized it's truth.

    I love how Piper has tons of Scripture all through this book! That's how I know this is a man after God's own heart.

    I don't care who you are or how long you've been a Christian, this is a book you're gonna want to read. If you're looking to go deeper, this will be a tool God uses. If you're just looking for a little refreshment (we all need that, don't we!), this is the book to read! The very core of our beings are to be centered on God and living to please Him and bring delight to Him! This book is wonderful to help you truly realize that. God bless!

    We are working through this book at our Saturday mornings mens group. Piper is a thinker and causes you to consider things you never thought about. He truly gets you to think about the excellency and glory of God in a way that I never had. This book gives you the meat of the word and not some lite snack.

    I have read through Piper's volume on God's delight in being God three times now and everytime I do I find more and more to chew on. It is a masterful volume completely centered on God. If you have not read it, do so! It will change the way you think about and love God!

    Great Book! I wouldn't say it is easy to understand or that you could fly through it. I found that each paragraph deserved careful reflection and therefore should be read more than once. It's devotional and theological.It's my favorite book of Piper's.
