Description

The pursuit of pleasure is not optional. It is essential. Scripture reveals that the great business of life is to glorify God by enjoying Him for ever. In this paradigm-shattering work, John Piper reveals that the debate between duty and delight doesn't truly exist: delight is our duty. Join him as he stuns you again and again with life-impacting truths you saw in the Bible, but never dared to believe.
