GOD IS THEGOSPEL (out of print)
by John Piper p/b 209pp
This book is a plea that God himself, as revealed most clearly and fully in Jesus’s death and resurrection, be seen and enjoyed as the final and greatest gift of the gospel. All God’s good gifts are loving to the degree that they lead us to God himself. This is the love of God: doing everything necessary, most painfully in the death of his Son, to enthrall us with what is most deeply and durably satisfying—namely, himself.
Piper invites the reader to sharpen his or her appetite for God by turning away from the dulling effects of food and the dangers of idolatry and draw closer to God through simple fasting with accompanying prayer. These disciplines which seem to be so tedious and difficult actually release some of the greatest
freedom and joy we can experience in this life.
Why did Jesus suffer and die? The central issue of Jesus’ death is not the cause but the meaning, God’s meaning. John Piper has gathered from the New Testament fifty reasons in answer to the most important questions that each of us must face: What did God achieve for sinners like us in sending his Son to die?
The author traces the life of Christ from the start of his ministry to his death and resurrection. Using his skill as a story teller, Pollock retells the gospel story from the perspective of the apostle John, making the reader feel he is there with the disciples.
