Desiring God
Meditations of a Christian Hedonist
 By: John Piper

"The great business of life is to glorify God by enjoying him forever. Discord between duty and delight doesn't exist: delight is our duty. Piper stuns us again and again with things we saw in the Bible, but never dared to believe. Join him on this dangerous quest for maximum joy in God. But beware, it may cost you your life. Never mind - "the steadfast love of the Lord is better than life" (Psalm 63:3).

Taking Back Your Faith From the American Dream
 By: David Platt

"The church of the Lord Jesus has been seduced by a skilled seductress:  the American dream.  David Platt exposes this enemy of authentic Christianity and provides a way of escape throught a radical faith tht leads to a radical obedience.  I am not the same after reading it.  I trust that will also be true for you."
