"The healthy biblical realism of this study in Christian motivation comes as a breath of fresh air. Jonathan Edwards, whose ghost walks through most of Piper's pages, would be delighted with his disciple."See All

"The communion of a longing soul and a satisfying Christ is at the center of God's plan. Piper makes this overlooked, contradicted, trivialized, and sentimentalized message clear and compelling. Desiring God is a classicnow it's even richer."See All
"...a modern manual of true spirituality."See All

"Aside from that day in 1960 when I trusted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, the most important thing I ever did in life, at least in terms of spiritual development, was to read, in 1986, Desiring God by John Piper."See All

The Pursuit of Pleasure Is Not Optional. It Is Essential
In this DVD version of Desiring God—the classic description of Christian hedonism—John Piper explains how the supreme calling of life is to "glorify God by enjoying Him forever."
Drawing upon Scripture after Scripture, Piper shows why pursuing maximum joy is essential to glorifying God and, in what may be surprising to some, how God is ready to pursue with all His might our pleasure in Him! The implications of this truth are discussed in regard to conversion, worship, love, Scripture, prayer, money, marriage, missions, and suffering.
In ten sessions Piper teaches on:
- One Great Mission and Motivation
- A Summary of Christian Hedonism
- The Foundation of Christian Hedonism
- The Essence of Christian Hedonism
- The Grand Obligation
- How Then Shall We Fight for Joy?
Recorded in HD with subtitles in English, these video sessions are ideal for use in adult and youth Sunday-school classes, small groups, retreats, classrooms, and families. To get the most from this resource, use it along with the Desiring God DVD Study Guide.
