Publisher's Description

Grace is the heart of God to do you good when you deserve it least. But do we really know how deeply we don't deserve it? Only God can reveal that to us. He does it through the Bible. And when he does, the wonders of his grace explode with brightness as never before.

Publisher's Description

“You must be born again.” This declaration from Jesus is either deluded or devastating to the one who would be captain of his soul. Not many biblical realities are better designed by God to reveal our helplessness in sin. When Jesus said “You must be born again,” he was not sharing interesting and unimportant information. He was leading us to eternal life.

Hunger for God

“This is one of Piper’s most underrated books. Along with Don’t Waste Your Life and God is the Gospel, it is also one of my favorites. The title is misleading, this is not just a book about food or fasting, it is a book about the things we desire most––the things that control us. Piper gets to the heart of our hidden idolatries and the things that distract us from wholehearted devotion to God, pointing us to the all sufficient provision that is ours in Jesus Christ.”
- Benjamin Thocher, Westminster Bookstore Staff, 2013

God is the Gospel

“I believe this to be Piper's most significant book. It profoundly shaped how I view the goal of the Christian life: God does not stop at saving us, but he saves by giving us himself. God Is the Gospel is a wake up call for those of us who tend to maximize one benefit of Christ's work while minimizing the greatest gift of all, God himself. He argues that even something as grand as justification has an end in view: Christ suffered that he might bring us to God. Indeed, all of the benefits of salvation are facets of what it means to have the Lord as your inheritance.”
- Benjamin Dahlvang, Westminster Bookstore Staff, 2013

Five Points

“I love this new book by John Piper. I don't know of any other brief book on this subject that so manifestly takes us down into the Scriptures and then so wonderfully lifts us up to see the glory of God. Many people will be encouraged, and not a few will have their faith jolted in the best way possible.”
- Kevin DeYoung, Senior Pastor, University Reformed Church. East Lansing, MI

“Nothing has changed my perspective and made more sense of God, life, and the world than the doctrines of grace. John Piper makes a complex theology understandable. Five Points will assist you to see how big and good our gracious God actually is.”
– Darrin Patrick, Lead Pastor, The Journey, St. Louis, MO

“Imagine being able to chat over a meal with John Piper about the five points of Calvinism. That's pretty much what you get in this book: a clear statement of these life-changing truths delivered with warm pastoral sensitivity in a conversational style. You won't find yourself being browbeaten. Instead, you'll find yourself invited to marvel at God's wonderful grace. The only thing missing is the meal.”
– Tim Chester, Co-Director of the Porterbrook Network; Pastor, The Crowded House, Sheffield

Finally Alive

“I cannot too strongly celebrate the publication of this book. Owing in part to several decades of dispute over justification and how a person is set right with God, we have tended to neglect another component of conversion no less important. Conversion under the terms of the new covenant is more than a matter of position and status in Christ, though never less: it includes miraculous Spirit-given transformation, something immeasurably beyond mere human resolution. It is new birth; it makes us new creatures; it demonstrates that the gospel is the power of God unto salvation. All the creedal orthodoxy in the world cannot replace it. The reason why "You must be born again" is so important is that you must be born again.”
- D. A. Carson, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Deerfield, IL

“For those curious about the Christian faith to those deeply committed to Christ and his ways, come read and behold the glory of any and every sinner's only hope-the miracle of the new birth that brings forth new life in Christ that will never end."
- Bruce Ware, Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY

"Regeneration, or new birth, meaning simply the new you through, with, in, and under Christ, is a largely neglected theme today, but this fine set of sermons, criss-crossing the New Testament data with great precision, goes far to fill the gap. Highly recommended.”
- J. I. Packer, Professor of Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, Canada

“Theologically thorough and yet heart-warmingly pastoral and practical, this important book should help God's people to value the remarkable status and responsibility of being "born again.'”
- Richard Cunningham, Director, Universities and Colleges Christian Fellowship (UCCF), United Kingdom

“Nothing could be more eternally important than Christian people knowing what the Bible teaches about the new birth and knowing that they have experienced it. One wonders why it's taken so long for a book on the new birth to be written! But now it has and I pray every reader rejoices in God for the rich beauties of Christ Jesus so compellingly shared in its pages.”
- Thabiti Anyabwile, Pastor, First Baptist Church, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands

“Expository and practical, this rich survey of New Testament teaching explores the nature of the new birth and the life which flows from it. Full of refreshment and encouragement, it reveals more deeply the glory of Christ and the gospel and motivates a renewed commitment to live out this good news and share it with others.”
- David Jackman, President, The Proclamation Trust, London

“When I was a boy my grandmother asked me, "Have you been born again?' Though I didn't understand what she meant at the time, that question led to my conversion to Christ. In this wonderful book, Pastor John Piper rescues the term "born again' from the abuse and overuse to which it is subject in our culture today. This is a fresh presentation of the evangelical doctrine of the new birth, a work filled with theological insight and pastoral wisdom.”
- Timothy George, Dean, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University, Birmingham, AL

“Many will be thankful that John Piper is here addressing the key need of our times. Every awakening begins with the renewed discovery of Christ's teaching on the new birth. Here is that amazing teaching in lucid yet comprehensive form; with a relevance to readers worldwide.”
- Iain H. Murray, Banner of Truth

“Have I been born again? is not a question to be answered hastily. In this book, Piper strips away our complacency, arguing that many people falsely believe they are Christians. By examining the Bible's teaching on the new birth, he shows us how to be certain our faith is genuine. Because no issue could be more critical, I believe this is the most important book Piper has written.”
- Adrian Warnock, blogger

“Classic Piper—crystal clear exposition and a must read.”
- Alistair Begg, Parkside Church, Chagrin Falls, OH

Hunger for God

“This is not a book of legalism. It's not a book of technique. It does not contain a twelve-step plan. At the end of the day, it's more about our hears than about our stomachs....We encourage you to read this book, asking great things form God.”
- David Platt & Francis Chan (From the Foreword)

A Hunger for God applied fasting to my everyday life. It’s not just for mystics and the monastics, but for every Christian. Fasting is not about us, nor is it about our devotion to God, as so many prescribe. We are a culture of abundance that indulges and abuses—fasting is a means of God’s grace to embrace someone greater than our appetites. This book radically changed, simplified, and drew me nearer to Christ.”
- Keyan Soltani

A Hunger for God came to me in a time in my life when pain and heartache brought about a thirst that only our Savior can fill! I am always hungry and thirsty for more of him. In these pages I felt God’s extravagant love at each turn. What a treasure!”
- Amy Kneen

“Few books have had such an impact on my life as A Hunger for God. While try- ing to understand how God could use fasting in my life, I was overwhelmed by my need for Christ, homesickness for heaven, and longing to take the light of Christ to the world. John Piper shows clearly with Scripture God’s purpose and view of our fasting for the joy of our soul and the glory of his name. This book has helped me cherish the Giver rather than the gift.”
- Octavio Sánchez

“In the most desperate time of my Christian life, this book taught me to see God as all fulfilling. As I turned to God, I found joy in the midst of suffering. No longer did I see this season in my life as destruction but as a time of providential guidance toward seeing God as the longed-for object and fulfillment of my soul. A Hunger for God helped turn my desperation into affection.”
- Rudy Rackley

“I came to the United States hungry for money, success, and the American dream. I did not know that God was going to chase me away from worshiping these and draw me to worship him. The Spirit used A Hunger for God mightily in my life. I came to grasp with what it means to renounce all things for the sake of Christ, to tear down strongholds in obedience to him, and to rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Bread was made so that I can worship God through my enjoyment of him in eating it—not by glorifying it or by glorifying myself for providing it. I’m encour- aged that this book is being rereleased, and may God use it to show himself greater than all gifts to a whole new generation of men and women throughout the world.”
- Victor Chininin Buele
