Love your enemies : Jesus' love command in the Synoptic Gospels and in the early Christian paraenesis : a history of the tradition and interpretation of its uses by John Piper ( Book )
19 editions published between 1974 and 2012 in English and German and held by 618 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
'Love Your Enemies.' This is one of the few statements Jesus made that is readily accepted by believers and skeptics alike. Its authenticity is not seriously questioned and yet it is a revolutionary command. Giving attention to various critical theories, John Piper presents evidence that the early church earnestly advocated for non-retaliatory love, extending it to those who practiced evil in the world. Such love was key to the church's own ethical tradition or paraenesis. Piper illuminates the Synoptics and passages in Romans, as well as 1 Thessalonians and 1 Peter, with non-canonical evidence, investigating the theological significance of Jesus' love command. Originally published as #38 in the Society for New Testament Studies Monograph Series, this is John Piper's doctoral dissertation from the University of Munich. It is a serious work of Christian scholarship by a long-time respected author and pastor. This repackaged edition features a new, extensive introduction and will be of interest to scholars, students, and lay people who have training in New Testament studies" -- BACK COVER

Let the Nations Be Glad! will help students of missions reflect on the relationship between church and mission and on the role of every Christian in going out to all the world. - Back cover
Don't waste your life by John Piper ( Book )
15 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"John Piper writes, "I will tell you what a tragedy is. I will show you how to waste your life. Consider this story from the February 1998 Reader's Digest: A couple 'took early retirement from their jobs in the Northeast five years ago when he was 59 and she was 51. Now they live in Punta Gorda, Florida, where they cruise on their 30-foot trawler, play softball and collect shells. . . .' Picture them before Christ at the great day of judgment: 'Look, Lord. See my shells.' That is a tragedy" --Cover, p. 4

How can we really know who Christ is? That question has been pondered through the ages.

It is like seeing the sun and knowing that it is light, or tasting honey and knowing it is sweet. There is no more important issue in life than seeing Jesus for who He really is, and savoring Him above all else. Let this book be your companion as you discover Him

The pleasures of God by John Piper ( Book )
10 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
THE SOURCE OF TRUE SATISFACTION. Isn't it true--we really don't know someone until we understand what makes that person happy' And so it is with God! What does bring delight to the happiest Being in the universe' John Piper writes, that it's only when we know what makes God glad that we'll know the greatness of His glory. Therefore, we must comprehend "the pleasures of God." Unlike so much of what is written today, this is not a book about us. It is about the One we were made for'God Himself. In this theological masterpiece'chosen by World Magazine as one of the 20th Century's top 100 books, John Piper reveals the biblical evidence to help us see and savor what the pleasures of God show us about Him. Then we will be able to drink deeply--and satisfyingly-- from the only well that offers living water. What followers of Jesus need now, more than anything else, is to know and love'behold and embrace'the great, glorious, sovereign, happy God of the Bible. "This is a unique and precious book that everybody should read more than once." J.I. PACKER Regent College, Vancouver, British Columbia Includes a study guide for individual and small-group use

Bloodlines : race, cross, and the Christian by John Piper ( Book )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Genocide. Terrorism. Hate crimes. In a world where racism is far from dead, is unity amidst diversities even remotely possible? Sharing from his own experiences growing up in the segregated South, pastor John Piper thoughtfully exposes the unremitting problem of racism. Instead of turning finally to organizations, education, famous personalities, or government programs to address racial strife, Piper reveals the definitive source of hope -- teaching how the good news about Jesus Christ actively undermines the sins that feed racial strife, and leads to a many-colored and many-cultured kingdom of God. Learn to pursue ethnic harmony from a biblical perspective, and to relate to real people different from yourself, as you take part in the bloodline of Jesus that is comprised of "every tongue, tribe, and nation." - Publisher
Beyond the bounds : open theism and the undermining of biblical Christianity by John Piper ( Book )
6 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Everyone who believes in God at all believes that He knows what you and I are going to do tomorrow. –C. S. Lewis This understanding of God's foreknowledge has united the church for twenty centuries. But advocates of open theism are presenting a different vision of God and a different view of the future. The rise of open theism within evangelicalism has raised a host of questions. Was classical theism decisively tainted by Greek philosophy? How should we understand passages that tell us that God repents? Are essentials of biblical Christianity–like the inerrancy of Scripture, the trustworthiness of God, and the Gospel of Christ–at stake in this debate? Where, when, and why should we draw new boundaries–and is open theism beyond them? Beyond the Bounds brings together a respected team of scholars to examine the latest literature, address these questions, and give guidance to the church in this time of controversy. Contributors include: John Piper Wayne Grudem Michael S. Horton Bruce A. Ware Mark R. Talbot A. B. Caneday Stephen J. Wellum Justin Taylor Paul Kjoss Helseth Chad Brand William C. Davis Russell Fuller We have prepared this book to address the issue of boundaries and, we pray, bring some remedy to the present and impending pain of embracing open theism as a legitimate Christian vision of God. . . . As a pastor, who longs to be biblical and God-centered and Christ-exalting and eternally helpful to my people, I see open theism as theologically ruinous, dishonoring to God, belittling to Christ, and pastorally hurtful. My prayer is that Christian leaders will come to see it this way, and thus love the church by counting open theism beyond the bounds of orthodox Christian teaching. –From the Foreword by John Piper
Think : the life of the mind and the love of God by John Piper ( Book )
6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Piper urges us to think for the glory of God. He demonstrates from Scripture that glorifying God with our minds and hearts is not either-or, but both-and. Thinking carefully about God fuels passion and affections for God. Likewise, Christ-exalting emotion leads to disciplined thinking. --from publisher description
Brothers, we are not professionals : a plea to pastors for radical ministry by John Piper ( Book )
7 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We pastors are being killed by the professionalizing of the pastoral ministry. The mentality of the professional is not the mentality of the prophet. It is not the mentality of the slave of Christ. Professionalism has nothing to do with the essence and heart of the Christian ministry. The more professional we long to be, the more spiritual death we will leave in our wake. The world sets the agenda of the professional man; God sets the agenda of the spiritual man
The legacy of sovereign joy : God's triumphant grace in the lives of Augustine, Luther, and Calvin by John Piper ( Book )
11 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
If ever you are complacent about sin, if ever you lose the joy of Christ, if ever you are dulled by the world's influence, the lives of these men can help you recapture the wonder of God. And so John Piper takes you to the time of Augustine, Luther, and Calvin, inviting you to look at their imperfections, read of their transformations, and behold the reflection of God in their lives so that a greater passion for God's glory may be inspired in your own
The future of justification : a response to N.T. Wright by John Piper ( Book )
7 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is in response to N.T. Wright, a world-renowned New Testament scholar and bishop of Durham in the Church of England. Wright's confidence that the church has gotten it wrong for 1,500 years, given his enormous influence, has set off warning bells for Christian leaders such as John Piper, a pastor and New Testament scholar, If Wright's framework for interpreting the New Testament text and his understanding of justification find a home in the church, not only could the doctrine of justification be distorted for generations to come, but the New Testament writers' original intent could be silenced. So Piper is sounding a crucial warning in this book, reminding all Christians to exercise great caution regarding "fresh" interpretations of the Bible and to hold fast to the biblical view of justification
A God entranced vision of all things : the legacy of Jonathan Edwards ( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Useful men are some of the greatest blessings of a people. To have many such is more for a people's happiness than almost anything, unless it be God's own gracious, spiritual presence amongst them; they are precious gifts of heaven."Certainly one of the most useful men in evangelical history was the man who preached those words, pastor and theologian Jonathan Edwards. Commemorating his 300th birthday, general editors John Piper and Justin Taylor chose ten essays that highlight different aspects of Edwards's life and legacy and show how his teachings are just as relevant today as they were three centuries ago.Even within the church, many people know little more about Edwards than what is printed in American history textbooks-most often, excerpts from his best-known sermon, "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God." They unjustly envision Edwards preaching only fire and brimstone to frightened listeners. But he knew and preached God's heaven as much as Satan's hell. He was a humble and joyful servant, striving to glorify God in his personal life and public ministry.This book's contributors investigate the character and teachings of the man who preached from a deep concern for the unsaved and a passionate desire for God. Studying the life and works of this dynamic Great Awakening figure will rouse slumbering Christians, prompting them to view the world through Edwards's God-centered lens" -- BACK COVER
God's passion for His glory : living the vision of Jonathan Edwards, with the complete text of The end for which God created the world by John Piper ( Book )
7 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In his essay The End for Which God Created the World, the great theologian Jonathan Edwards proclaimed that God's ultimate end is the manifestation of his glory in the highest happiness of his creatures. Pastor John Piper has devoted his years of ministry to exploring the implications of this stunning truth for life and ministry. Understanding that God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him has made all the difference for John Piper-and can transform your life as well. Here Piper passionately demonstrates the relevance of Edwards's ideals for the personal and public lives of Christians today through his own book-length introduction to Edwards's The End for Which God Created the World. This book also contains the complete essay supplemented by almost a hundred of Piper's insightful explanatory notes. The result is a powerful and persuasive presentation of the things that matter most in the Christian life
