In this classic on practical godliness, John Piper sets out what Christ has accomplished for us in redemption, and what he requires of us in our responses to him in faith, love and obedience. For Piper, 'future grace' refers to God's promised transforming power at work now in the lives of his people, which provides true satisfaction in Christ-centred living by forward-looking faith.
John Piper shows how, by prizing the promises of God, believers can break free from the power of specific, destructive sins: anxiety, pride, misplaced shame, impatience, covetousness, bitterness, despondency and lust
Rooted in solid biblical reflection, these passionate and readable meditations are divided into thirty-one chapters to aid devotional reading each day of the month. They offer a sure pathway to a revitalized evangelical spirituality.
"Bible-soaked, god-intoxicated, deeply evangelical and passionately humane, Piper fills the forgotten dimensions of faith - hope and contentment, stability and sanctity, prizing and praising God - with a master hand. This is a rich and wise book, one to treasure and re-read." J.I. Packer,
