Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vicki | 2/12/2014

    " If you don't want to be challenged to love and desire God even more than don't read this book! Very challenging and stimulating! Highly recommended. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alex Pettett | 2/6/2014

    " John Piper delivers another mind bending look at what it means to err on the side of hedonism. The title itself should be enough to take a peak inside. Christians all over should consider this book a standard part of their library. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Logan Almy | 2/5/2014

    " Most practical Piper book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chuck | 1/31/2014

    " Everyone experiences spiritual dryness. Piper gives solid advice on what to do when you are in less than thrilled about spiritual things. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt | 1/23/2014

    " I was wasting time in Borders and came across this title. It is what I feel a lot of the time. It was a great writing on why we should be praising most of the time. I may not always agree with Piper, but I admire him and I know I can always learn something from his teachings. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel Olsen | 1/18/2014

    " Excellent read. Had to move through it slowly because Piper can be deep. This is a theological book, and it's shaped my theology. I'll likely reread at some point. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex Dwyer | 1/14/2014

    " This is one of the best books on practical joy. As Christians it is so hard to fight for daily joy but Piper gives very practical and Biblical ways to win the battle. I have found that my life and habits have already been changed. John Piper is truly one of God's anointed saints. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brian | 1/10/2014

    " I have grown so much since I read Desiring God and my theology no longer lines up with Piper. I found this book to be tedious and hard to read due to our differences. I will try to come back to it another time when I have more patience. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Chris Wisener | 1/10/2014

    " It seemed to contradict itself. Just my observation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 12/13/2013

    " Also read 9/22/04 "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeff | 11/23/2013

    " One of the most helpful books I've read. The last two chapters alone, "How to Wield the World in the Fight for Joy", and "When the Darkness Does Not Lift", are worth the price of the whole book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josh | 10/13/2013

    " A practical guide to living out Christian Hedonism. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Towens23 | 9/15/2013

    " I'm really grateful for this book. It addresses some of my deepest fears and gives hope! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa | 9/5/2013

    " This is one of my all-time favorites, because it really does help me fight for joy and look to God and the Bible in doing so. I *highly* recommend it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wassenario | 8/19/2013

    " Worth taking the time to read. Especially the chapters on memorizing/meditating on scripture and prayer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sean Higgins | 8/17/2013

    " This book is a must read for any Christian, especially those who are struggling in their spiritual walk, as well as those having difficulty understanding Piper's idea of Christian Hedonism. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Job Dalomba | 4/18/2013

    " Excellent book. Read it aloud with my young adult children. Highly recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Clarissa | 2/21/2013

    " Piper gets practical in this book. It does offer "how to" insight, but is in no way parochial. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 2/20/2013

    " A good read. Helps to re-spark the faith-walk that the everyday grind tries to make stagnant. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathryn Jones | 1/2/2013

    " I was so blessed by this book. I read it while suffering with post pardum depression and it was so helpful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 4/29/2012

    " Good but I have so little time for reading so had to put back on the to read stack in order to read the library books that came in & will need to be returned shortly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 12/30/2011

    " Piper was his usual devotional self, good or bad. I was greatly encouraged by the book and found it to be helpful. His analysis of spiritual depression: its causes and cures is refreshing. I would suggest this book to all believers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roxanne | 8/10/2011

    " Both encouraging and challenging at the same time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason Farley | 7/29/2011

    " Mostly very good, sometimes really great. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tim Plett | 6/29/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dustin | 6/5/2011

    " You'll get out what you put into this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jmajors | 5/9/2011

    " Piper once again hit it out of the park for me.

    My take away: God is perfectly self centered. All that he does is for His glorification and I am blessed as a result of it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 2/5/2011

    " Piper was his usual devotional self, good or bad. I was greatly encouraged by the book and found it to be helpful. His analysis of spiritual depression: its causes and cures is refreshing. I would suggest this book to all believers. "

    " This is a book I'll return to often. Very encouraging! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katrece | 8/11/2010

    " Nothing wrong with it. It was pretty good but I didn't invest as much time in gleaning from the book as I usually do with non-fiction, Christian books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 5/10/2010

    " a bit tough to get through b/c he writes so deep, but a great book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Casey | 2/10/2010

    " If you already understand the basics of Christian Hedonism, this book gives you very practical ways to pursue the joy that is had in seeing God. "
