A Godward Heart: Treasuring the God Who Loves You by author John Piper takes the reader deep into the love of God and how He desires to relate to His children. There are fifty meditations that enable the reader to grow deeper in their faith and love for God. Author Piper, writer of the wonderful book Desiring God, allows the reader to be challenged as well as stretched by his meditations. He looks at such things as: hearing from God personally, the loss and suffering found within the life of the believer, why God outwardly tells His children that He delights in them, why use Twitter, the problem with prosperity preachers, and so much more. If this whets your appetite, then you will be in for an enjoyable journey reading the rest of the book.

Author Piper is very relatable and understanding. He doesn't talk down to the reader, yet he does challenge and draw one to think about their life and if they want to improve upon it. God didn't call us to sit and become comfortable and this book helps to move the believer out of their comfort zone to become stronger and more effective in their Christian walk. There are many scriptures given so the reader can conduct additional study if they desire. There are also many points given that could be used as a teaching lesson for a small group class. This would be a nice devotional book and/or gift book if you are looking to enhance a believer's walk with God.
