A Godward Heart
A Godward Heart: Treasuring The God Who Loves you is a compilation of short devotionals by John Piper. It's an attractive small hardcover that is easy to carry around and use in conjunction with your daily Bible reading. This book includes 50 meditations, or short devotions. They each include a Bible verse to center on and then a few paragraphs expounding on the topic of the verse. The devotions promise to be thought-provoking and soul-enriching, and Piper delivers on that promise. I truly enjoyed A Godward Heart. As a Christian, I'm always looking for devotional books to enrich and expand my daily Bible reading and have read many such books. I really enjoy the ones that are deep and really touch my soul, as opposed to many which are more superficial or "fluff" in nature. This book is truly very deep and will give you a lot to meditate on doctrinally. As a note, John Piper is a Calvinist (I am not), but there are still many great truths in this book regardless if you are a Calvinist or not - and he is quick to reassure the reader that you don't have to agree with his Calvinist doctrine to truly benefit from and enjoy this devotional. I recommend this devotional to any Christian looking to deepen their walk with God. I received a copy of this book from Waterbrook Multnomah in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
