What Jesus Demands from the World by John Piper

The four Gospels are filled with demands straight from the mouth of Jesus Christ. These demands are Jesus way of showing us who he is and what he expects of us. They are not the harsh demands of a taskmaster. For example, the demand that we come to Jesus is like the demand of a father to his child in a burning window, Jump to me! Or like the demand of a rich, strong, tender, handsome husband to an unfaithful wife, Come home! 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 has gathered many of Jesus demands from the four Gospels. He begins with an introduction that puts the demands in a redemptive-historical context, then concisely examines each demand. The result is an accessible introduction for thoughtful inquirers and new believers, as well as meditative meat for veteran believers who want to know Jesus better.
