(Top Christian Books on Christian Hedonism )
1) Desiring God, Revised Edition: Meditations of a Christian Hedonist
Desiring God is a paradigm-shattering work that dramatically alters common perspectives on relating to God. Piper reveals that there really is no need to choose between duty and delight in the Christian life. In fact, for the follower of Jesus, delight is the duty as Christ is most magnified in His people when they are most satisfied in Him.
Constantly drawing on Scripture to build his case, Piper shows why pursuing maximum joy is essential to glorifying God. He discusses the implications of this for conversion, worship, love, Scripture, prayer, money, marriage, missions, and suffering.
2) The Dangerous Duty of Delight: Daring to Make God Your Greatest Desire
Each of us is hard-wired to pursue our happiness. We long for significant, profound joy. Some try to satisfy it with exotic vacations, high-tech gadgets, career success, sports, academics, drug experimentation, even ascetic rigors.
3) Enjoy: Finding the Freedom to Delight Daily in God’s Good Gifts
Watching a gorgeous sunset. Sharing a laugh with a friend. Tasting a sun-ripened strawberry. Each day is full of opportunities for you to savor the countless gifts the Creator has given.
But do you feel free to delight in God’s abundant gifts, or is your joy sometimes distorted by guilt, fear of idolatry, or simply an overwhelming awareness of sin’s effects on this world?
4) The Life of God in the Soul of Man
2010 Reprint of 1948 Edition. The Life of God in the Soul of Man was written as a letter of spiritual counsel to a friend, and it succeeded far beyond the author’s expectations.
It passed from hand to hand until it was brought to Gilbert Burnet, the future bishop of Salisbury, with the suggestion that it be made available to the world
5) The Religious Affections: How True Conversion Happens
Religious Affections lays out the cornerstone of Christian thought of the mid-18th century. Impossible to ignore, Religious Affections demands a response.
No one can read it and be unchanged. The level of discipleship it asks is shocking to modern readers, but ultimately necessary for our salvation. Religious Affections is a work by Jonathan Edwards now brought to you in this new edition of the timeless classic.
6) The Things of Earth: Treasuring God by Enjoying His Gifts
Ice-cold lemonade. The laughter of children. College football. Scrambled eggs and crispy bacon. But what happens to these earthly pleasures when Jesus shows up? Do the things of earth grow strangely dim? Or does he shine in all that’s fair?
In this book, Joe Rigney offers a breath of fresh air to Christians who are burdened by false standards, impossible expectations, and misguided notions of holiness. Steering a middle course between idolatry on the one hand and ingratitude on the other, this much-needed book reminds us that every good gift comes from the Father’s hand, that God’s blessings should drive us to worship and generosity, and that a passion for God’s glory is as wide as the world.
7) Awe: Why It Matters for Everything We Think, Say, and Do
Our hearts are always captured by something—that’s how God made us. But sin threatens to distract us from the glory of our Creator. All too often, we stand in awe of everything but God.
Uncovering the lies we believe about all the earthly things that promise us peace, life, and contentment, Paul Tripp redirects our gaze to God’s awe-inducing glory—showing how such a vision has the potential to impact our every thought, word, and deed.
8) The Happy Christian: Ten Ways to Be a Joyful Believer in a Gloomy World
Hopelessness has invaded much of our culture, even reaching deep into the church. But while the world is awash in negativity, Christians have resources to live differently.
In The Happy Christian, professor and pastor David Murray blends the best of modern science and psychology with the timeless truths of Scripture to create a solid, credible guide to positivity. The author of the acclaimed Christians Get Depressed Too, Murray exposes modern negativity’s insidious roots and presents ten perspective-changing ways to remain optimistic in a world that keeps trying to drag us down.
9) Pleasures Evermore (The Life Changing Power of Enjoying God)
The author, Sam Storms, presents a fresh and liberating perspective on the positive and pleasurable relationship with God.
Once we understand that God delights in our company, our desire for Him increases and we will long to draw closer to Him. You will find yourself able to resist the seductive appeals of the world as you realize that your ever-increasing pleasure in God is the key to holiness and the catalyst for resisting sin (Dr. Larry Crabb).
