I used this DVD series with a group of young men. The messages were thoughtful and practical and generated much discussion after each session. The topic, finding your satisfaction in God, was refreshing and exciting! Knowing Christ should be exciting and pursuing Him should not be regulated by duty driven obedience. Obedience from the heart comes out from what we treasure. This series brings us to the realization that we can only truly find eternal happiness when we are treasuring our relationship with Christ above all things and finding our happiness in God.

I used this dvd series for my study group. We were looking at exploring the Glory of God, how we view God and what relationship we have with Him. Although the dvd has a teenage audience, it was applicable to all ages.
Piper is just clear and challenging. Met my expectations.

This was an excellent study for my wife and I to go through after resigning from formal ministry. This re-focused us and reminded us that "God is glorified not only by His glory's being seen, but by its being rejoiced in. When those that see it delight in it, God is more glorified than if they only see it.... He that testifies his idea of God's glory [does not] glorify God so much as he testifies also his approbation of it and his delight in it." Jonathan Edwards

I am thoroughly enjoying going through these sessions each week as part of our prayer group. It has been a tremendous blessing to hear such God centered and God exalting teaching. It has helped me in understanding the profound truth that I am to pursue pleasure and delight... in God, what John Piper calls "Christian Hedonism". :) The soul satisfying supremacy of Christ in all things, for the joy of all people. I would highly recommend this set to those that lead a "small-group", or even simply for yourself.

Our men's small group is almost completed this outstanding series with John Piper. We have found it very stimulating even at 7:00AM when we meet. We love John's "in your face" passion on this life-changing topic. Would recommend highly for all age groups. This DVD would make an ideal Christmas gift and is very reasonably priced.

Joy in God--necessary? Or simply optional??? John Piper explains why that if Christ is to be the sun at the center of the solar system of our lives, then He must also be our supreme joy over all other "lesser treasures." Glorifying God can only be done from a heart that is glad in God. Deep joy in God is the true foundation for all obedience; it is the only Christ-exalting motivation to endure suffering...especially to willfuly choose suffering.I'm so glad this resource is finally available at Christianbook.com. Show it to your Youth Group, Men's/Women's Group, or Home Bible Study. Set your church ablaze with a passion for the glory of God, in the supremacay of Christ over all things in this world. All fueled by a Spirit produced joy and satisfaction in the Lord Himself--to His praise and renoun!Romans 11:36--Jeffrey
