Find the Source of True Satisfaction This study companion to the DVD version of The Pleasures of God--the landmark book by John Piper--will help individuals and groups answer the question, “What brings delight to the happiest Being in the universe?” Because it’s by knowing what makes God glad that we can drink deeply—and satisfyingly—from the only well that offers living water. The DVD and this guide create an ideal package for adult and youth Sunday school classes, small groups, retreats, classrooms, families, as well as for individual study. Topics for this 12-session (or alternative 6-session intensive track), guided study include: The Worth and Excellency of God’s Soul, Our Pleasure in God’s Well-Placed Pleasures, God’s Pleasure in His Eternal Son, God’s Pleasure in the Display of His Glory, God’s Pleasure in All That He Does, God’s Pleasure in All of Creation, God’s Pleasure in Election, God’s Pleasure in Bruising His Son, and more. Complete with Scripture, key quotations for reflection, penetrating questions, and five daily assignments per week, this study guide will help reveal that what followers of Jesus need now, more than anything else, is to know and love—behold and embrace—the great, glorious, sovereign, happy God of the Bible.
