Book Recommendation: A Hunger for God

Book Recommendation: A Hunger for God

The staff at Antioch is currently reading through A Hunger for God by John Piper.

Even though I’ve read it before, I have been surprised at just how good it is.
For anyone who has ever wondered about fasting and prayer this book is a must read.
Here are some of the tidbits I’ve enjoyed so far:
“The weakness of our hunger for God is not because he is unsavory, but because we keep ourselves stuffed with “other things.” Perhaps , then, the denial of our stomach’s appetite for food might express, or even increase, our soul’s appetite for God.”
“What we hunger for most, we worship.”
“… the root of Christian fasting is the hunger of homesickness for God.”
“Getting near the glory of God is surely the key to burning with inextinguishable light and heat.”
“When God tells the people what to do, this is not a job description, but a doctor’s prescription.”
“Fasting is meant to starve sin, not us.”
