Taste and See by John Piper

piperTaste and See is a collection of 125 daily meditations written by John Piper. The subtitle of the book points to what the reader can expect: Savoring the Supremacy of God in All of Life.  The meditations are written in typical Piper style. They are full of scripture and personal application. Piper shares excerpts from his personal journals and family life and struggles. He addresses the pains and struggles of life, always pointing to Christ and the scriptures as the foundation for his direction and foundation.

If devotional books are what you normally use for your daily quiet time, Taste and See is a good one to use. Since there are so many scripture references (which is a great thing), keep your Bible handy. The meditations are more meaningful and are illuminated by deeper study of each scripture referenced. The book has been designed for ease of use as a reference tool by having subject, person, and scripture indexes.

As with any John Piper book, if you want to be led to the enjoyment of God in his supremacy, this is a good one to own.

I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for a review.
