Books by John Piper
Risk is Right: Better to Lose Your Life Than to Waste It (2013)
language
English
4.12 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Short and sweet. After briefly defining risk, Piper shows how the biblical characters are forced to take risks and how God purposefully puts us in situations where taking risks is the only appropriate response. Although the book is interesting by the very nature of its subject an...
A Sweet and Bitter Providence: Sex, Race, and the Sovereignty of God (2010)
language
English
4.19 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Excellent, read this in one sitting it was so good!! "The story of Ruth, at one level, is about God's sweet & bitter providence. The story shows that God is at work in the darkest of times for the good of his people. But at another level, the story is about something much larger ...
Finally Alive: What Happens When We Are Born Again? (2009)
language
English
4.19 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Excellent presentation of the new birth from a Reformed point of view but detached from the Jewish interpretive context, and therefore doesn't see the new birth into the life of God's Spirit as central to the history of God's covenant faithfulness to Israel in giving them the new...
This Momentary Marriage: A Parable of Permanence (2009)
language
English
4.27 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Piper's treatise on marriage is a breath of fresh air. Per Piper, marriage with all its glory of romance, sex, and childbearing ultimately are ultimately temporary and note guaranteed for this life. While embracing the difficulty, disappointments, and maddening nature of marriage...
Spectacular Sins: And Their Global Purpose in the Glory of Christ (2008)
language
English
4.28 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Spectacular book. It brings together in a simple read, the major categories of evil that we can think of today. Adam's fall, Satan and demons, the cross, the betrayal of Judas, our personal sin, Joseph's slavery, etc. and expounds upon them in such a way that I will never again t...
Mas Vivo Que Nunca!: Que Sucede Cuando Nacemos de Nuevo (2010)
language
English
4.46 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: A good book on understanding the new birth. He spends a lot of time in I John, which makes sense. He does a good job showing why regeneration in necessary, how it occurs, and what are the results of it. He also nicely balances God's work and the necessity of means. God does not b...
Filling Up the Afflictions of Christ: The Cost of Bringing the Gospel to the Nations in the Lives of William Tyndale, Adoniram Judson, and John Paton (2009)
language
English
4.35 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: When I first read Piper over 20 years ago (Desiring God: Meditations of a Christian Hedonist), I thought he was wordy and verbose. (I guess that is a tautology). I have come to change my mind about that somewhat. At any rate, from his web-page, desiringgod.org, I have come to enj...
The Dawning of Indestructible Joy: Daily Readings for Advent (2014)
language
English
4.07 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: "It happened in a city. Not in Narnia. Not in Middle-earth. Not in a galaxy far, far away. It happened in a city about 7,000 miles away from Minneapolis. The city still exists today.... The city's name is Bethlehem."John Piper shares, each day of advent, about the JOY of Christma...
Good News of Great Joy: Daily Readings for Advent (2012)
language
English
4.15 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: Funny — the 2013 edition (this one) appears to be exactly the same as the 2012 edition with the exception that there is an additional reading. The 2013 edition is 1-25 December; the 2012 edition is 2-25 December. But what a difference a year makes. I really didn't enjoy this book...
Five Points: Towards a Deeper Experience of God's Grace (2013)
language
English
4.38 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: I've been critiquing this book on facebook as I finish up the chapters, so I don't plan on giving a full review. I entered this book thinking I was probably a two or three point Calvinist, and exited it realizing I'm very likely a zero point Calvinist. My frustrations with the ...
O pastor como mestre & o mestre como pastor (2011)
language
English
4.12 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: In general, I appreciated this booklet. There were a number of good points, and it would be a godo read for those from more conservative, evangelical backgrounds to read in order to appreciate both the scholarly and pastoral nature of working with the Bible. However, I did at tim...
Does God Desire All to Be Saved? (2013)
language
English
4.28 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Piper talks about the two wills of God — his "will of decree" and his "will of command" — and says that the Bible clearly teaches both and that the appropriate position is to hold both in tension as being true. Essentially he deals with how God can will (desire or decree) that pe...
The Power of Words and the Wonder of God (2009)
language
English
3.99 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Given the contributors, I expected this book to be good, but it exceeds expectations. There’s no weak link. Every chapter, including the introduction, brings a unique and vital perspective to a critical subject. It’s impossible to overstate the power and eternal impact of our sp...
Thinking. Loving. Doing.: A Call to Glorify God with Heart and Mind (2011)
language
English
3.98 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Not a bad book, mainly just not my cuppa. I'm not a big Piper fan (nothing personal, just his writing style isn't what I enjoy) and though I really liked some of the content of Warren's essay, his writing style was basically "Baptist preacher's sermon put into text." Whoa. Not gr...
Seeing Beauty and Saying Beautifully: The Power of Poetic Effort in the Work of George Herbert, George Whitefield, and C. S. Lewis (2014)
language
English
4.35 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: The moment I opened this book, I had a hard time putting it down. Piper is deep, reflective, and well thought out. Though these are mainly taken from three DG Pastor's Conferences, reading them was just as beneficial as hearing them. Piper dives into the lives of Herbert, Whitefi...
