Desiring God, Revised Edition

John Piper is an author whom my husband and I both greatly respect. We have read several of his books, which all were very insightful and contained much wisdom, and have had on our "to read list" Desiring God. I was excited to discover that he had a new revised edition of this book and couldn't wait to read it.
This revised edition of Desiring God gives readers insight to Christian motivation. We as Christians are to find our full satisfaction in Christ alone, but often we loose sight of the joy and happiness when we focus on our duty as Christians rather than our delight in God. Piper states that "God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him."
I would encourage all Christians to read this book so that our focus is not on doing for Christ, but rather enjoying Christ. The former will follow if we live out the latter.
