Book Review: Taste and See by John Piper

John Piper has written many books over the years that have been bestsellers. Some of those include Desiring God, A Hunger for God, and Let The Nations Be Glad. What many don't know is that Piper has written a few devotional books. Taste and See is one of them.

Unlike most devotionals, this one has only 125 daily readings. Most devotionals are meant to be read all year long. In this devotional, Piper looks at scripture to answer some hard questions. He does not go over the top, but does communicate God's message without watering it down.

Some of the things Piper writes about deal with relationships with the family, eternal life, casting our anxieties on God, and even God's purpose for sleep, which you don't hear enough of. The readings are not long. Some are two pages while others are 3-4 pages.

Piper takes some complex topics and writes them in simplistic form so readers can ponder on what he is writing. If you are looking for a devotional that does not take all year to read, this is the one for you. You can even read it twice in a year if you wish.

Thanks Waterbrook & Multnomah for letting me review this book.
