John Piper has had a profound impact on countless men and women over his nearly thirty years of ministry. From his online ministry with Desiring God to his preaching ministry at Bethlehem Baptist to his writing ministry in over thirty books, his faithful service has encouraged and challenged many with God’s Word.
Piper’s influence does not stem from his own abilities and accomplishments, but finds its source in his consistent and humble leading of others to Scripture, where the breathtaking glory of God is displayed in all its wonder. We rejoice and are changed as we encounter glorious truths about God in Piper’s ministry.
It is in this spirit that friends and colleagues of Piper, including Wayne Grudem, D. A. Carson, Randy Alcorn, and others, honor him by presenting essays covering topics central to his ministry: prayer, the sovereignty of God, justification, Jonathan Edwards, Christian Hedonism, and more.
Pastors, scholars, and lay leaders will benefit from this tribute to a man who has labored so faithfully for the fame of God’s name.

Like any book composed of different authors and essays, there is a tendency to be hit or miss in likeability. Personally, I found myself enjoying the beginning and the ending of the collection. The beginning was more personal and the ending was more practical, dealing both with specific issues as well as pastoral practice. The middle was more theologically focused, but I think because many of the topics are demanding, there isn’t the space in this kind of medium to both flesh out one’s opinion and then show the day to day application of such a view satisfactorily. And so, there were some dry spots here and there (and I really like the authors from the middle section too! Perhaps I’ve read over the topics too much and just found myself skimming through some of it). Overall, it was a good book and, when the topic was honed in onto a more specific topic (ie, abortion, ethnic identities) especially while showing Piper’s contribution and thoughts on said...
The Glory of God is supreme with great expository messages given by top Bible scholars and writers. It is less messages in honor of John Piper and more anointed truth in deep Expositons of needed subjects
