A Godward Heart by John Piper – Book Review
When you reach for a devotional, what is it that your spirit longs for? Are you looking for devotions that will help you to deepen your faith and grow in your walk with the Lord? Are you looking for writings that will make you think about what you believe and how you live out your life? Are you looking for an author who intellectually challenges you and quenches the parched places in your soul?
If so, I’d like to recommend A Godward Heart – Treasuring The God Who Loves You by John Piper.
John Piper is a theologian at heart. He is an author who makes you think about God and about how you live out your faith.
A Godward Heart contains 50 devotions designed to help us reflect on the mysteries of God and how we can live a more Godward life. This is a wonderful book for anyone who is serious about their faith.
Of this book, John writes:
God can make a single paragraph life changing.
I think of your reading and my writing as a kind of partnership in the pursuit of a Godward miracle. I write, you read, but God gives the sight. What we both want is the miracle of seeing – seeing life-changing things about God and life and eternity.
A Godward Heart is a book that you will read – reflect upon – and read again. It is a book worth owning and a book worth sharing with your friends.
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
