A Godward Heart by John Piper

Treasuring the God Who Loves You

I find it rather hard to review a devotional.  Devotionals are meant to be read slowly, one day at a time.  They are for pondering, savoring, meditating.  However, time does not allow me to do that.  So I read it quickly, and then put it back on my shelf… to be read slowly during my quiet time in the coming days.

John Piper fills the pages of A Godward Heart with 50 meditations that draw your soul closer to God.  Each bite sized devotional is deeply soul stirring, leading you closer to a better knowledge of our Father in heaven.

Day 25 is an anniversary meditation on 1 Corinthians 13, while day 12 focusses on living as if the world was passing away.   Day 17 is a commentary  on the true view of doctrine, and day 30 commentates on caring for the hopeless, the hurting, and the downtrodden.

I highly recommend you add this book to your quiet time with the Lord.

5 out of 5 stars.
