David Cochran Heath interprets the author's theory of Christian hedonism with a strong narration and attention to detail. He fully expresses Piper's discussion of how man can delight in God and bring satisfaction to his soul to quell inner restlessness. "Man is not made for earth," Piper says, but for eternity. The foundation of Piper's concept is obedience to God, which leads to experiencing joy in one's relationship with Him. That joy results in an attitudinal change toward worship, marriage, and material goods, which also builds one's faith. Classic writers and theologians are quoted to support his theme. Heath's deft narration makes this audio easy to listen to. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine
