Publisher's Summary

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.
