Meditations on According to John

Exercises in Biblical Theology

The gospel of John, titled simply "According to John" in ancient manuscripts, contains some of the simplest language in the New Testament. The Greek of this book is so simple that it is often used in teaching beginning students to read New Testament Greek. Pastors and teachers often recommend the book as a good starting point for new Chrustians reading the Bible for the first time. But the simple vocabulary and structure belies an extraordinary spiritual depth. While there are lessons to be learned from an initial surface reading, diligent seekers will find incredible depths. Understanding these deeper lessons requires one to see the book as a whole and understand the intricate pattern of connections between the various parts. Verse by verse and even passage by passage study can be misleading. New Testament scholar Herold Weiss spent a considerable amount of time searching for the best way to open up the treasures of this gospel to non-scholars and settled on a series of meditations on various phrases or events related in the book. In each meditation he ties the specific theme to related passages and imagery throughout the gospel. His masterful presentation will open your eyes and mind to new insights into the fourth gospel, early Christianity, and its application to 21st century Christianity.

Despite the long history of mysticism within Christianity, more and more Christians are turning to Eastern religions for spiritual guidance. Some have abandoned the religion of their childhood, believing they've found the ?pearl of great price” in Eastern meditation. Christian insight meditation places Buddhist meditation within the Christian prayer tradition, guiding followers through a process of inner purification that leads to a deeper Christian faith and to the direct vision of God. Also drawing onthe teaching of Teresa of Avila, this inspiring book offers reliable guidance in learning the practice, allowing readers to follow in the footsteps of John of the Cross, while answering questions they may have about Christian grace and the Buddhist dhamma; karma, rebirth, and purgatory; and the Buddhist no-self and Christian soul. Readers will discover the power of Christian insight meditation to bring inner peace and healing and to deepen and enhance their Christian life.

Meditations on God's Delight in Being God

The author of Desiring God reveals the biblical evidence to help us see and savor what the pleasures of God show us about Him. Includes a study guide for individual and small-group use. 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
