‘Seeing and Savoring Jesus Christ’ Book Review October 11, 2012

Title: Seeing and Savoring Jesus Christ

Author: John Piper

Date I Finished Reading: October 11,2012

My Rating: 5/5

Jesus Christ… he is the center of the gospel. He is our salvation. However, do we really know him? In this book Piper simply and biblically presents to us some of the characteristics of our savior.He looks into WHO Jesus is, not merely WHAT Jesus is (our savior). Some characteristics of Christ explored within the book are:

*His Aim

*His Diety

*His Excellence (this looks into his lion/lamb nature)

*His Joy

*His Power

*His Wisdom

*His Desecration

*His Anguish/Suffering

*His Saving Sacrifice

*His Mercies

*His Severity

*His Resurrection

*His Second Coming

This book was very easy to read, with simple language and small chapters. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who desires to learn more about our great God! Another book that I would suggest on this topic would be Knowing God by J.I. Packer, which is very deep, but also very rewarding!
