Finding Complete Satisfaction and Joy in God
THE PURSUIT OF PLEASURE IS NOT OPTIONAL. IT IS ESSENTIAL.
This study guide companion to the DVD version of
--the classic explanation of Christian hedonism by John Piper--will help individuals and groups understand that the supreme calling of life is to "glorify God by enjoying Him forever."
The DVD and this guide create an ideal package for adult and youth Sunday school classes, small groups, retreats, classrooms, families, as well as for individual study.
Topics for this 12-session guided group study include:
One Great Mission and Motivation
A Summary of Christian Hedonism
The Foundation of Christian Hedonism
The Essence of Christian Hedonism
The Grand Obligation (Part 1): Commanded to Rejoice
The Grand Obligation (Part 2): An Essential Element of Faith and Worship

The Grand Obligation (Part 4): The Strength for Sanctification and Service
How Then Shall We Fight for Joy? (Part 1): Know Its Sources and Setbacks
How Then Shall We Fight for Joy? (Part 2): Make Use of the Means of Grace
Complete with Scripture, key quotations for reflection, penetrating questions, and five daily assignments per week, this study guide will help you understand why God's pursuit of His glory and your pursuit of joy are not at odds--because
God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.
Also includes a 6-session intensive track option.
