Pleasures of God: Meditations on God's Delight in Being God

The weight of glory is a happy burden. Thus God is the happiest Being in the Universe. To know Him in His pleasures is to see Him as He is - and to have a fresh encounter with His transforming presence. If you are hungry for this deep delight, consider the gladness of His great heart. The things that make God glad are the measures of His greatness. Christ and the cross. Choosing His people and bruising His Son. Creating the world and revealing His worth. The gladness of His people in the greatness of His glory.

    "Must read"

    This is an amazing book that truly magnifies God above all else. The glory of God is on full display through Piper's wonderful imagery and narrative, and is then applied to our own lives. A must read.

    "Outstanding"
    Would you listen to Pleasures of God again? Why?

    I have read and reread the book, The Pleasures of God, the audio version brings the message into focus in new and insightful ways.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Pleasures of God?

    The fact that this author identifies and clarifies the Volcanic and Exuberant Happiness of God in being God.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The beginning chapters where Mr Piper illuminates who Christ is and the essence of his being begotten.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It elicits joy in this reader and wonderment in the happiness that I previously did not understand.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend.
