Overview

A guided group study that focuses on John Piper's DVD teaching regarding how to fight for true delight in Christ and obtain proper affections for God.

Does the command to love God with all our heart, soul, and mind really obligate us to enjoy God above all things? Joy and delight are emotions after all, so isn't such love simply a decision of the will, not a feeling?

According to John Piper, in this companion to the When I Don't Desire God DVD, emotions are commanded everywhere in Scripture. They're not just instructions to think a certain way but to feel a certain way. And though we don't have complete control of our emotions, eternity hangs on the presence of proper affections for God. Therefore, the fight for joy is not optional. It is essential.

This study guide-focused on Piper's powerful teaching on DVD-explores the necessity and strategies of delighting in Christ in an eight-session, guided group study. Each guide features helps for reflection, penetrating questions, and five daily assignments per week. Along with the DVD, it is an ideal package that will lead groups of any size in the all-important fight for joy.
