John Piper (DTheol, University of Munich) is the founder and teacher of desiringGod.org and the chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary. He served for thirty-three years as the senior pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and is the author of more than fifty books, including Desiring God; Dont Waste Your Life; This Momentary Marriage; A Peculiar Glory; and Reading the Bible Supernaturally.
God rests all too lightly on the churchs mind in our time. Consequently, the self-saturation of his people has made God and his glory auxiliary, and his majesty has all but disappeared from the modern evangelical world.
John Calvin saw a similar thing in his day, and it was at the root of his quarrel with Rome. Nothing mattered more to Calvin than the centrality, supremacy, and majesty of the glory of God. His aim, he wrote, was to set before [man], as the prime motive of his existence, zeal to illustrate the glory of Goda fitting banner over all of the great Reformers life and work. The essential meaning of Calvins life and preaching, writes John Piper, is that he recovered and embodied a passion for the absolute reality and majesty of God. Such is the aim and burden of this book as well.
As Piper concisely unfolds this predominant theme in Calvins life, he seeks to fire every Christians passion for the centrality and supremacy of God, so that Gods self-identification in Exodus 3 as I am who I am becomes the sun in our solar system too.
