<2016년 7월 25일 진규선 목사님의 리뷰>
존 파이퍼의 125개의 신앙 묵상집. 존 파이퍼는, 하나님의 주권, 신체에 대한 이미지, 은퇴, 위선, 기도, 정신 건강, 컴퓨터 사용, 확신, 젠더, 동성애, 휴식, 등 기독교의 경건의 주제뿐 아니라 오늘날 마주할 수 있는 모든 일상적이고도 사회적인 문제에 대하여 간략하게 신앙 묵상을 통해 자신의 의견을 나눈다. 보수적인 신앙을 가진 이들에게 좋은 책이 될 것이다. 비록 성경 본문이 소제목으로 붙어있진 않지만, 묵상집이니 만큼 뒤에 수록된 주제 색인과 성경 색인은 독자들에게 유용할 것이다. - SuaFam
A Devotional Powerhouse!
This revision of the follow-up to the popular A Godward Life adds twenty fresh entries to the original 120 daily meditations that are solid meat and sweet milk from God’s Word. The new entries broach current and controversial subject matter, such as partial-birth abortion and gay marriage. Piper asks the hardest questions and finds wonderfully poignant but practical and applicable truths from the Bible. These 350 pages of substantive spiritual nourishment will brace readers’ minds with truth and nourish their hearts with God’s sovereign grace. Pastors and lay leaders particularly will appreciate the three indexes included. They don’t need to look any further to find a pertinent illustration or tidbit of inspiration!
Expanded Edition of the Popular Godward Life II Devotional
Taste and see…The Lord is good.
The soul tastes truth like the lips taste food. Spiritual hunger cries out for rich, substantial nourishment. It is remarkable how much meat these daily portions contain.
Skillfully presented by pastor John Piper, this devotional of contemporary meditations on biblical reality will whet your appetite for more of God Himself and refresh you in your daily communion with Christ.
“This volume is a treasure of true doctrine applied to life.”
-R. Albert Mohler Jr., president, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
“Going to sleep with John Piper’s words on your mind will coax you from complacency and wake you up to a passionate faith.”
-Phil Callaway, speaker and bestselling author
Story Behind the Book
John Piper’s life-long love affair with his church is evidenced in each of the 140 articles included in Taste and See. Originally, each article was written for his flock at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis . They are sometimes follow-ups to Sunday sermons; sometimes meditations of a pastor’s heart, expressing his longing for the holiness of his congregation. Many of the entries are his own relentless interrogations of a biblical text. A few are colorful anecdotes from a pastor’s daily life--a pastor whose heartbeat for God pulsates through every word.
