5 out of 5 stars

I recently finished the aforementioned book with the utmost gladness. I have never, to my knowledge, read such an impactful, applicable text such as this. Whether one is struggling in the throes of depression, spiritual complacency, or some other form of stagnancy, I cannot recommend this enough. Piper delves into Reformed/Puritan theology with simplicity and careful exposition, gently laying out the remedies of melancholy or salvific uncertainty. Moreover, he presents God as he really is, a, as he says in other occurences, “Vesuvius of joy.” God delights in his creation, namely his children.  Therefore, it is conducive–and even necessary–for Christians to recognize themselves as such.
