    This book is an excellent opportunity to discover what we often put off in our minds: that God not only promises joy in our lives, He commands it. It is difficult for us to comprehend because we often confuse 'joy' with 'happiness' - or feelings of pleasure. John Piper does an amazing job of working us systematically through first, the concept of joy (what is it, why do we want it so much, and why we have to strive for it instead of being handed it on a plate); and second, the disciplines required to see joy fulfilled in our lives.

    John Piper here heralds again his favourite principle: that "God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him". And he draws us to remember (or learn for the first time) that it is the Word of God, and the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ, that will bring us joy in our lives. Nothing else will truly provide it. Having good friends, a good job, an enjoyable life, and even a good church will never bring us the level of joy that God has in store for us until we set our foundations on Christ first - and then the joy comes.

    In order to help us begin the process of disciplining ourselves in reading the Word, in prayer, and in memorising the Word, he gives us at the back of the book a multitude of specific helps such as websites, other books, booklets, and more. This book came just at the time when I was not struggling with doing what I know to be right, but in enjoying it. Imagine learning the amazing concept that discipline of yourself will bring you more joy than you ever thought possible. Don't just imagine it. Begin the process.
