  • Future Grace : The Purifying Power Of The Promises Of God (Revised)

    $13.54

    There is a secret to stopping the sin-repent-sin cycle. It’s called grace.

    In Future Grace, author John Piper helps readers discover the key to overcoming sin and living a life that honors God. Many men and women attempt to walk upright out of gratitude for what Christ did in the past, but Piper encourages believers to look ahead to the grace God provides for us on a day-by-day, moment-by-moment basis-putting faith into action by laying hold of God’s promises for the challenges we face.

    Sever the Root of Sin

    No one sins out of duty. We sin because we want to. Sin promises happiness, and we buy the lie. So how can the root of sin be severed in our lives? The penalty of sin must be paid by the righteous blood of Christ. And the power of sin must be broken by banking on the promises of Christ.

    John Piper’s meditations are rooted in rock-solid biblical reflection. Chapter by chapter-one for each day of the month-he reveals how, by cherishing the promises of God, you can break the power of anxiety, despondency, covetousness, lust, bitterness, impatience, pride, misplaced shame, and more.

  • This Momentary Marriage

    $9.59

    The chasm between the biblical vision of marriage and the common human conception is-and has always been-gargantuan. Reflecting on over forty years of matrimony, John Piper exalts the biblical meaning of marriage over its emotion, exhorting couples to keep their covenant as a display of Christ’s covenant-keeping love for the church. He aims to lift the church’s low view of marriage to something infinitely greater, namely, a vision of Jesus’s unswerving allegiance to and affection for his bride. This Momentary Marriage unpacks the biblical vision, its unexpected contours, and its weighty implications for married, single, divorced, and remarried alike. Now available in paperback with a freshly redesigned cover, Piper’s book on marriage holds even greater appeal.

  • Love Your Enemies

    $6.79

    From 1971-1974 John Piper attended the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in München for doctoral work. In choosing a dissertation topic he decided to explore Jesus’s command in the Synoptic Gospels to love one’s enemies, and its relationship to similar ethical exhortations in the epistles (the Early Christian Paraenesis).Using a history of traditions approach, Piper begins by examining each New Testament reference to Jesus’s command in an attempt to place its origin within the broader paraenetic tradition. Piper moves on to survey similar exhortations for enemy love in the environment of the early church, then analyzes this particular command of Jesus within the broader context of his whole message. He investigates the theological significance of Jesus’s love command in the paraenesis and finally concludes by focusing on the Gospel tradition’s use of the command, particularly in Matthew and Luke.First published by Cambridge University Press in the Society for New Testament Studies Monograph Series, this repackaged edition features a new, extensive introduction. A serious work of Christian scholarship by a long-time respected author and pastor, this will be of interest to scholars, students, and lay people who have training in New Testament studies.

  • Desiring God : Meditations Of A Christian Hedonist (Revised)

    $11.99

    Desiring God, a classic work on the pleasures of knowing and serving God, is now available in a more reader-friendly edition that includes a discussion guide – ideal for use in a church-wide emphasis or for small group study.

    Desiring God, John Piper’s classic, enthusiastic explanation of Christian hedonism, bears the message that the great business of life is to glorify God by enjoying Him forever. Constantly drawing on Scripture to build his case, Piper shows why pursuing maximum joy is essential to glorifying God. He discusses the implications for this for conversion, worship, love, Scripture, prayer, money, marriage, missions, and suffering.

    Desiring God is a paradigm-shattering work that dramatically alters common perspectives on what relating to God should look like. Piper reveals that there really is no need to choose between duty and delight in the Christian life. In fact for the follower of Jesus, delight is the duty. He concludes that Christ is most magnified in His people when they are most satisfied in him.
