prov·o·ca·tion - something that provokes, arouses, or stimulates. pant - to long eagerly; yearn. a collection of thoughts intended to provoke and inspire. these posts are hoping to encourage people to think, especially Christians, and pant even harder for the waterbrooks of the Lord. If you are not a believer in Christ Jesus, I welcome your perspective and encourage your investigation on these matters.

Piper, John. The Pleasures of God: Meditations on God's Delight in Being God. Sisters, OR: Multnomah, 2002. 400 pp. $14.99. This book is quickly becoming the theology book of the 21st Century to change your life. This book is the 2nd in a series of three by John Piper to explain what he calls 'Christian Hedonism'. I know that there have been some to call him a 'hyper-calvinist' in an attempt to scare people away from his writings. But to say that would be equal to saying that some who reads their Bible is a 'hyper-christian'. Surely there is substance that will enlarge your appetite for what God delights most supremely in, unless of course you have predisposed yourself to not see it. A pleausre to read. Posted by Hello

Thanks for the book suggestion. I'm always looking for a great read. I just finished a book by John Bevere, Drawing Near. Great book!

I'll have to look into the Piper book as well as some Os Guinness. I'm reading "The New Faithful: Why Young Adults Are Embracing Christian Orthodyoxy" by Colleen Carroll, and she quotes Os Guinness quite a bit. Thanks for the tip!

Os Guiness' Prophetic Untimeliness is excellent.
