Taste And See (John Piper)
John Piper is an amazing teacher, author, and pastor. He has written many books and founded desiringGod.org. I have done reviews of his work before and enjoyed it. His newest book, Taste And See, is a book with 125 daily meditations. I chose to use this for my devotions each morning.
The theme of Taste And See is "Savoring the Supremacy of God in All of Life". That means trusting God no matter your circumstances and choosing to give God the credit for everything. God is sovereign and supreme. He is ruler over everything. John Piper gives us lessons on how we can appreciate God's authority and delight in His presence.
Each devotion is set up the same. There is a theme for each day and a sub-theme. The lessons are written by John Piper and are about two and a half pages long. They are easy to read and he gives scripture verses to back up his teachings. He uses the Bible to get his points across and is firm in his faith.
This book is hard bound and easy to use. The author helps to solidify your trust and faith in God who rules over everything. He asks hard questions and gives Biblical truth to back up his findings. God loves us so much and sometimes it is hard to feel that love through life's circumstances. But in Psalm 119:103 we read, "How sweet are your words to taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!" God wants us to dig deeper into our relationship with Him. This book gives you the tools and understanding to be able to do that.
