The four Gospels are filled with demands from Jesus. These demands are Jesus' way of showing us who he is and what he expects of us. They are not harsh demands originating from a selfish desire to control, but rather loving directions for our good and ultimate satisfaction. In fact, what Jesus demands from the world can be summed up as: "Trust and treasure me above all." This is good news!

In What Jesus Demands from the World, John Piper looks at the demands of Jesus as found in the four Gospels. He begins with an introduction that puts the demands in a redemptive-historical context, then engages in a concise examination of each. The result is an accessible introduction for thoughtful inquirers and new believers, as well as a refreshing reminder for more mature believers of God's plan for his Son's glory and our good. Now available in paperback.

From the Back Cover:

In the four Gospels, Jesus Christ makes many demands, which are
addressed both to his followers and to others. These demands show us who
Jesus is and what he expects of us. They are not the harsh requirements of
a taskmaster, however, but rather the command of the life-giver to come and
have life. What Jesus demands from the world can be summed up as `Trust and
treasure me above all.'

In 'What Jesus Demands from the World', John Piper has gathered many of
Jesus' demands from the Gospels. He provides a brief outline of Jesus'
person and work to set his demands in context, and then examines them in
fifty concise chapters. In this way he offers an accessible introduction
for thoughtful enquirers who would like to know Jesus, new believers who
are getting to know him, and established believers who want to know him
better.

John Piper is senior pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis and
the head of Desiring God. He has written numerous books, including
'Desiring God', 'Future Grace' and 'God is the Gospel', all published by
IVP.
