One of Piper's books that I would recommend is "The Pleasures of God". It's the kind of book that is hard to put down.

This is a book about the good news of God's gladness in being God. It is not mainly about us. But it is about what we were made for.

Piper admires the writings of Jonathan Edwards and frequently quotes him. He points out that God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him. Let everyone who is thirsty come.


When I survey the wondrous cross on which the Prince of Glory died, my richest gain I count but loss and pour contempt on all my pride. - Isaac Watts
