Description

Whether we’re rich or poor, married or single, in a position of great influence or not—all of us face temptation in the areas of money, sex and power. They are the dangerous opportunities of our time—opportunities to destroy our own souls, or to experience the true joy of using them for God’s glory. John Piper shows us that when we have the blazing glory of Christ at the centre of our spiritual solar system, the planets of money, sex and power find their true and beautiful orbits.

This book is for every Christian and will help you to wake up to the all-satisfying glory of God, and discover what you were made for.

Commendations

Piper here exposes us to the power of the Word. He helps open our ears to sober and solemn warnings. He also helps us embrace encouragements that shine with the promises of God. This book is about money, sex, and power. It is of course ultimately and wonderfully about the supremely satisfying and shining glory of God in Christ.

Kathleen Nielson

Director of Women's Initiative, The Gospel Coalition

This new book is timely and deserves careful consideration by every Christian. It is a theologically rich, biblically faithful exploration of potential stumbling blocks to enjoying God: sex, money, and power. In these pages you will discover not only the spiritual danger of setting your hope in the things of this world but how, as Christians, we can understand sex, money, and power in ways that display God’s glory.

R. Albert Mohler, Jr

President, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

Money, sex and power are the three towering gods of our age, and the greatest temptations for those both inside and outside the church. In this short, pithy and powerful book, John Piper brings biblical wisdom, practical insight and a pastor's passion to the subject, and shows how living in the light will eclipse all the idols this world has to offer—and put money, sex and power in their rightful, God-glorifying place.
