A Godward Heart by John Piper

Ever since I was in seminary and read John Piper's powerful book, Desiring God: Meditations of a Christian Hedonist, I became a John Piper fan.  John's style is straight forward, no punches pulled.  I like that style.

In his newest book, A Godward Heart, Piper invites the reader to go on a journey so that they will experience the power of a relationship with God.  I will admit I didn't expect this book to be quite as heady as it is.  Being more of a devotional book, I expected more cute stories about how to grow in my relationship with Christ.

But I was surprised and challenged by the words of Piper.  The book contains 50 chapters which progress from knowledge of God to where will your final destination leave you.  The chapters are short, usually about 4 pages.  But they will challenge you.

If you are looking for a book which will challenge you, and help you to question what you believe, this is an excellent book.  You can read it quickly, but I would suggest moving through it slowly, so that you gain the most from Piper's words.

This book would make an excellent gift.

I received this book for free from Multnomah Books in exchange for an honest review.
