For me personally, this is one of the books God put in my life years ago at just the right time for life-changing reasons. And I felt it was time I read it again due to some things God's been addressing in my life. It's my favourite book by John Piper. It's very short (only 84 pages), and that's what makes it so compelling. When one of your favourite authors condenses his thoughts on one of his favourite subjects to a mere 84 pages, it's good to take notice! Because you know he wouldn't want to waste a single word when narrowing down what he wants to say on that subject. The result is concentrated goodness, and compelling reading. I'm so glad to have read it again!
This is vintage Piper. It serves as a condensed introduction to his larger work: Desiring God. By-in-large, the book is quite good. As always, Piper teaches through Scripture some very profound Biblical truths. He is not quite clear at a few places in explaining things, and a couple of the chapters are rather short and offer little. Overall, the work is good, and is a nice primer for Desiring God.
