The Satisfied Soul

The Satisfied Soul
By John Piper
Publisher: Multnomah

Piper continues his quest to keep Christians focused on the direct teachings of the Bible in a world that “takes another step away from God’s truth and into greater moral and spiritual relativism.”

Piper, founder of and chancellor of Bethlehem College and Seminary, retreads 120 of his daily meditations with the weight of manhole covers. Each one is only two or three pages and starts with a bold, statement followed by Scripture that dogmatically keeps readers turning back to the Word. It is uncompromising and unapologetic, a five-minute morning read that affects the readers’ entire day.

While long-term Christians might find this a great refresher and refocusing tool, newer Christians might use it as a forceful spiritual boot camp. Piper comments that our daily experiences can leave us spiritually “starved, parched, and confused.” Turning those desires back to God will give believers the satisfaction they need.
