Sam Storms summarizes his book in these words:

"My point is simply that passionate and joyful admiration of God, and not merely intellectual apprehension, is the aim of our existence. If God is to be supremely glorified in us it’s essential that we be supremely glad in him and in what he has done for us in Jesus."

Anyone accustomed to the ministry of John Piper will recognize this as Christian Hedonism, and Storms himself uses the term to describe his own “theory of everything.” But the question then becomes, "Why not read Piper's books on this subject, since he is most well-known for this emphasis in his teaching?" The answer is, because Sam Storms has written a very capable argument which is much more readable and accessible than Piper's style of writing. He uses language which is both simple and passionate—one never suffers confusion over what he means or whether he believes it himself. And he easily keeps the reader’s attention by frequently shifting his mode of delivery, using everything from astronomy to atoms for examples of his point. But far from blitzing the reader, this array focuses him on the glory of God and what delight can be found in Him.

We trust the contents of this book will prove to be a useful guide in focusing your life around the glory of God in Christ. We highly recommend it!


Sample Pages: Contents | Chapter 1

Are you missing the point of life? It's the sort of question that stops brains working "Just get on with life and don't think about it." we say - but if we do stop and think about it: the Bible has answers. The goal of our creation was not simply that we might be happy, but happy in appreciating God's glory. Not in the development of a healthy self-esteem, the enjoyment of our own sensual appetites or in the acquisition of a four-bedroom home with a three-car garage. We were made to glorify God and enjoy him forever. Nothing is more important than understanding this truth. Not simply for our intellectual and theological curiosity, but crucial for the quality of our existence. This inspiring book tells us that beauty convinces the inquiring mind of truth. Beauty calls us to reshape our lives and exposes the shabbiness of our conduct. Our soul's contact with God's beauty forges a new affection no earthly power can overcome. Enjoying God is the catalyst for substantive and lasting change in your life.
