A Godward Heart by John PiperI have long enjoyed reading the writings of John Piper. His writing style draws me in and makes me think about the subject matters. And I've learned much about living the life God would have me to live by pondering his writings.


A Godward Heart is a collection of short meditations from Piper. There are fifty here, so they could be read as a short devotional several times a week or for a month and a half as a daily devotional. The meditations aren't all based on Scripture like some devotionals (Scripture reading, explanation, application), but they are like short essays/meditations.

Topics range from explanation of particular Scriptures to modesty to God's glory and grace. Piper is good at explaining and at using Scripture to back up his thoughts and opinions.

The hardback copy is pretty and is small enough to make it easily portable. It makes a great little devotional book that would also be a good gift.
