Desiring God - What Is Christian Hedonism? - John Piper

What is Christian Hedonism? John Piper has used the short phrase for years to describe how our joy in God makes much of God. In other words, God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him. In ten minutes, he explains where that idea came from, and why he believes it is biblical.

John Stephen Piper was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee, to Bill and Ruth Piper January 11, 1946. When John and his older sister were still small, the family moved to Greenville, South Carolina, where John spent his growing-up years. His father was an itinerant evangelist, and his mother died in 1974 in a bus accident while visiting Israel.

Most people in the world have no experience of deep and abiding joy. Even though it is something we all desperately long for, the assurance that true happiness can be known — fully and forever — is a hope that billions of people live every day without. This is a tragedy. Desiring God is on a mission to change that. Every video they create exists to guide you toward everlasting joy in Jesus Christ. For more information visit: desiringgod.org.
