A Godward Heart, A Book Review

To Satisfy Your Soul — with God

John Piper invites you to experience deeper intimacy with God through these thought-provoking and soul-enriching meditations. Whether you are just discovering the divine richness of Scripture or have long been a passionate student, you’ll find a deeper understanding of God and renewed insight for your journey.

downloadThis is my first experience reading anything by John Piper. I think this little book was a great place to start! This little book is chock full of deep insight into a variety of topics. It is written in a somewhat devotional format, with short chapters that are only about 3 pages long, but those three pages are packed full of scripture, reflection and personal experience by the author, and are guaranteed to leave you with something to ponder. I love how this book covers so many different topics, and I love the way in which it was written. Piper has a way of writing that feels personal, almost like you were sitting down with him, one on one.

This is a great collection of thoughts, that are short and sweet, and most importantly…to the point. I often find books can be repetitious in the point they are trying to make, so I find it refreshing that Piper has the ability to get his point across in such a small amount of words.  For being a short, devotional-style book, this little treasure is meaty, in-depth and very satisfying to the soul.

JOHN PIPER is founder and teacher of DesiringGod.org and chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary. For thirty-three years he served as pastor at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis. He is the author of more than fifty books, including the contemporary classic, Desiring God. He and his wife, Noel, have five children and twelve grandchildren.
