Grover Gardner (narrator)

"The pursuit of pleasure is not optional. It is essential."

Scripture reveals that the great business of life is to glorify God by enjoying Him forever. In this paradigm-shattering work, John Piper reveals that the debate between duty and delight doesn't truly exist: Delight is our duty. Join him as he unveils stunning, life-impacting truths you saw in the Bible but never dared to believe.

The message of DESIRING GOD is that God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him. In this book, Piper calls this worldview "Christian Hedonism" and explains why pursuing maximum joy is essential to glorifying God. He discusses the implications of this for conversion, worship, love, Scripture, prayer, money, marriage, missions, and suffering.
