Isn't this book cover beautiful!?

Inside the Pages

Psalm 34:8 reads, “Taste and See that the Lord is good.” (ESV)

John Piper has written and compiled 140 meditations to direct the believer to love God with his heart, mind, and strength, to taste and see – to know, to experience, to enjoy – that the Lord is good. This devotion book is a 2010 MUST READ!

Worth Repeating

John Piper writes at the beginning of the book, “Where is God in your daily newspaper or in your talk radio show or the network TV programming or Time and Newsweek or the theater or the public classroom? God is the most important reality in the universe.” (15)

From My Perspective

This devotion book is a 2010 MUST READ! As you begin to think about the next year – I am sure you are considering which calendar to hang on your wall, which planner to keep in your purse – remember to think about which devotion book will aid you in your daily quiet time. Honestly, I really recommend this one – it will help you fulfill the best new year’s resolution – to love God more broadly and deeply with your heart, mind, and strength. The daily reading will challenge you, comfort you, and show God’s care for you. With only 140 meditations in this book, you are sure to finish reading it in a year!

This book has really helped me in my relationship with the Lord in this way –

a. I taste and see – recognize and enjoy – the Lord throughout my day to day life.

b. I love the Lord better with my mind since I have started (and now finished) this book.

c. I love the Lord better with my heart through reading this book.

As 2009 comes to a close and you plan for the New Year, I pray you consider this great meditation and devotion book as one of your 2010 resolutions – It’s a great way to begin!

  1. I’ve enjoyed reading through this book as well, although I’ve been going through it slowly. I just finished the chapter that has his letter to Noel before they adopted their daughter. Like you, I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a good devotional book to get ready for the New Year.

    A few other must-haves:

    – “A Shelter in the Time of Storm” by Paul Tripp (52 meditations on Psalm 27)
    – “For The Love of God” by D.A. Carson (based on the M’Cheyne Bible reading plan)
    – “Morning and Evening” (KJV Version) – C.H. Spurgeon

    Blessings to you !
