Living in the Light
- Product Review (submitted on May 20, 2016):
- Written by a true Christian hedonist, John Piper focuses on three of the most dangerous gifts of the Christian life: Money, Sex, and Power. Using the analogy of the solar system, he illustrates these three gifts as planets held in the gravitational pull of Jesus, the Sun, at the center. When the great gravitational pull at the center of our lives is the glory of God, then everything works together the way God had intended. If Jesus is not at the center of your life, your life will be out of order. According to Piper, money, sex, and power are three realities that God has graciously given to His children to make Him look good. Money, sex, and power are arguably the chief pursuits of this world. As a witness to the world, Christians who correctly use these gifts will give evidence that God is better than anything in this world. This book is recommended to anyone who pursues worldly things in order to get the greatest high as well as for those who are tempted to believe that money, sex, and power are sinful things to be avoided. Contrary to what some may think, the three realities in this book are gifts from God to be enjoyed on His terms and not the plague to be avoided or even necessities in which to suffer to get through this life. I received this book free from christianaudio in exchange for an honest review. For more information, visit www.christianaudio.com.
