  • The Worth and Excellency of God’s Soul
  • Our Pleasure in God’s Well-Placed Pleasures
  • God’s Pleasure in His Eternal Son
  • God’s Pleasure in the Display of His Glory
  • God’s Pleasure in All That He Does
  • God’s Pleasure in All of Creation
  • God’s Pleasure in Election
  • God’s Pleasure in Bruising His Son

What followers of Jesus need now, more than anything else, is to know and love—behold and embrace—the great, glorious, sovereign, happy God of the Bible.

This resources is designed to be used along with The Pleasures of God DVD.
