I am a little late in getting this popular book read.  The sub-title of the book—Meditations of a Christian Hedonist—had tuned me out until I realized most people were enjoying it.  I started out not liking what I believed would be the normal use of the word “hedonist” but I soon realized that Piper is using a risky word in a proper way—Christians ought to find all of their pleasure in God, and that pleasure is a good thing, not a bad thing.  Piper may fail to emphasize that pain and suffering in the Christian life is also to be taken as joy for Christ’s sake.
