10th Anniversary Expanded Edition
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 stuns you again and again with life-impacting truths you saw in the Bible, but never dared to believe.
