Explore this stunning quality of God’s grace: It never ends!
In this revision of a foundational work, John Piper reveals how grace is not only God’s undeserved gift to us in the past, but also God’s power to make good happen for us today, tomorrow, and forever.
True life for the follower of Jesus really is a moment-by-moment trust that God is dependable and fulfills his promises. This is living by faith in future grace, which provides God's mercy, provision, and wisdom - everything we need - to accomplish his good plans for us.
In Future Grace, chapter by chapter - one for each day of the month - Piper reveals how cherishing the promises of God helps break the power of persistent sin issues like anxiety, despondency, greed, lust, bitterness, impatience, pride, misplaced shame, and more.
Ultimate joy, peace, and hope in life and death are found in a confident, continual awareness of the reality of future grace.

"Pastor Piper's purpose in writing is to revitalize a decadent American Christianity that knows only cheap grace and cheap faith. Bible-soaked, God-intoxicated, deeply evangelical, and passionately humane, Piper fills the forgotten dimensions of faith - hope and contentment, stability and sanctity, prizing and praising God - with a master hand. This is a rich and wise book, one to treasure and reread." (J.I. Packer)
"In the long run, we're all dead. In the even longer run, we're raised from the dead. That's the power of Future Grace. It will rocket attention away from the narrow horizon we see in front of us toward the incandescent glory of new creation, gospel power. This book evaporates all the false dichotomies weighing down contemporary Christianity. You don't have to ping back and forth between the present and the future, the law of God or His grace, obedience or trust. Future Grace changed my life, and it can change yours." (Russell D. Moore, dean, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary)
"In Future Grace John Piper encourages believers to understand the present struggles of the Christian life in terms of the surpassing grace of God in Christ - a grace that calls us to exult in God's future work in us, even as we experience God's present grace and rest in the assurance of God's grace to us in the past. In this new edition, Piper serves the church by showing us a mind at work as he wrestles with some of the most crucial issues of the Christian life. This book is deeply biblical, passionately practical, and Christ-centered." (R. Albert Mohler Jr., president, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary)
This book is giving a deeper understanding in regards to works in faith. The understanding of how a believer gets credit for his works but doesn't have a chance to be saved for it, being a sinner. That is something myself and many people have a hard time understanding, since it doesn't fit our human behaviours.
For me this is extraordinary work from Pastor John.
The best book I have "read" on explaining true salvation looks like and the height, depth and breadth of God's sanctifying process for his children. Answered a lot of questions about salvation, sanctification and daily living. I have now bought the book and will be listening to it again, with book in-hand.
