The Taste and See Devotional by John Piper {Book Review}


This is my favorite view in the morning—Bible cracked open, hot coffee with cream and the Taste and See devotional by John Piper. (Don't get me wrong, I love waking up to the faces of my family but I do my best to be up before the party starts!)

The Taste and See devotional is written by respected author and theologian, John Piper. He has been the Pastor for Preaching and Vision at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota since 1980. I really have admired his messages and writing in the past and this book certainly followed suit.

In the preface of this book, Piper states, "The best writers intensify our taste of the Bible, and especially for God himself." He was referring to John Edwards' effect on his life and I find that to be true of this book as well.

Through the sharing of experiences, anecdotes and references to Scripture, Taste and See allows the reader to savor God's omnipotence, the beauty of His Word and the sweetness of His promises.
"God's omnipotent exuberance to do us good is one of the most freeing discoveries a human can make. Oh, that we might believe it and savor it and bring it to mind again and again, until it is our very nature to feel the truth that the godly are designed for inconceivable happiness." John Piper
The Taste and See 125-day devotional is available for purchase as a hardcover, paperback and ebook.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review. All opinions are my own.
