Publisher's Summary

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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

Book is great but Audible screwed up the ch breaks

Why, oh why did Audible not place the chapter breaks for this book in line with THE ACTUAL CHAPTERS????? This is especially frustrating for a book designed to be listened to a chapter per day. Forced me to bookmark the beginning of each Ch as I listened, so that the next go through will be less inconvenient.

Life Changing!

John Piper's teachings in this book satisfied so many nagging questions I have struggled with for years while studying the Bible. Seeing God through the eyes of future grace and seeking to be satisfied in Him was a life changing concept for me. Piper's teachings are deep and I will undoubtedly listening to this book several times...this is the meat versus the milk of Bible teachings.

True Salvation and Sanctification Explained

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.

Touched my heart in a time of need

really enjoyed the book. the author's premise is very interesting. look to God's future Grace at the same time as you rely upon his past Grace. wished the narrator would tell you the chapters as they came and went.

Recommended

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.

Absolutely full of theological truth!

Again John Piper makes us look at the Bible and the truth of God's love in a completely different way.

Didn’t like the shame chapter

I liked the book and am usually all about John Piper but I couldn’t give him 5s this time due to his chapter on shame. While I do think that our world can twist and misunderstand the difference between guilt and shame, I don’t think his research was significant enough to hit the nail on the head. As a therapist I am well versed in the worldly view of shame and as a Christian I also know the biblical view of shame. It was hard for me to agree not only on his interpretation of the worldview but also the biblical view. Shame used to be warranted but now there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus. Guilt is healthy, this is the idea of taking responsibility, shame is a belief that we are worthless or bad and this feeling has been conquered at the cross and now we are “justified” because He stood in our place. We should always take responsibility for our actions (whether Christian or otherwise) but as believers we should not feel shame and it IS destructive.

A Classic and a Treasure to be absorbed slowly

Some of the truths in this book require an enormous amount of thought it can be read once but as John says about the. bible if you rake you get leaves if you dig you may get Gold.
