Experience the Lifelong Pleasures of Knowing God! Satisfaction…Happiness…Joy. According to John Piper, the pursuit of pleasure in God is not only permissible, it’s essential. Desiring God is a paradigm-shattering work that dramatically alters common perspectives on relating to God. Piper reveals that there really is no need to choose between duty and delight in the Christian life. In fact, for the follower of Jesus, delight is the duty as Christ is most magnified in His people when they are most satisfied in Him. Constantly drawing on Scripture to build his case, Piper shows why pursuing maximum joy is essential to glorifying God. He discusses the implications of this for conversion, worship, love, Scripture, prayer, money, marriage, missions, and suffering. Piper beckons us to approach God with the hedonist’s abandon. Finally, we are freed to enjoy Jesus—not only as our Lord and Savior, but also as our all-surpassing, soul-satisfying Treasure. Desiring God may turn your Christian world upside down. And that will be a good thing, for the glory of God, and for your deepest joy. Includes a study guide for individual and small group use.

Life Is Never Mainly About Love and Marriage. So Learn to Live and Date for More. Many of you grew up assuming that marriage would meet all of your needs and unlock God’s purposes for you. But God has far more planned for you than your future marriage. Not Yet Married is not about waiting quietly in the corner of the world for God to bring you “the one,” but about inspiring you to live and date for more now. If you follow Jesus, the search for a spouse is no longer a pursuit of the perfect person, but a pursuit of more of God. He will likely write a love story for you different than the one you would write for yourself, but that’s because he loves you and knows how to write a better story. This book was written to help you find real hope, happiness, and purpose in your not-yet-married life.

What makes an “average man” into a “model man?” A model father, husband, citizen, businessman, politician, or athlete who possibly hundreds of other men could look to as their “example worth imitating?” America and many other nations of the world are plagued with mediocre, passive, impure and disappointing examples of men in every sphere of life. Their wives are unhappy, their children are rebellious, their finances are out of order, their sexual life is out of control, their commitments mean nothing, and their life has no purpose. Where are the men whose lives and characters carried such substance that they inspired armies of men to push aside their foolish ways and lead their families and communities with honor? Where are the men whose integrity is so impeccable that their “life” became a “legacy” as they remained stedfast to their principles of purity, godly example, and purpose? YOU are that “model man.” Pastor Larry Stockstill has been training pastors and businessmen in the principles of “integrity that leads to legacy” for over forty years. His ministry has brought him from the poorest villages of Africa as a missionary to leading a Bible study for the Governor of Louisiana for six years. Following the godly example of his ninety-five year old minister father, Roy Stockstill, he is imparting to a new generation what it means to live a life of “integrity, purity, and example.” He is demonstrating the “pace of grace” where your career and life finishes as well as it begins. He is illustrating “purpose of life” with it’s highest goal of “pleasing God.” Drawing from his 38 years of marriage to his wife, Melanie, and his six godly children who are all serving Christ in the church, Pastor Larry shares the principles of “how to have a happy wife” and “how to raise godly children.” Finally, the culmination of all of these principles, practically taught and applied, will produce the most treasured and sought after prize in all of life: a “legacy.” Paul told the Thessalonians that his goal was to “make ourselves a model for you to follow” (2 Thess. 3: 9, NIV). God can change your from a MESS into a MODEL! This book is simple, short, and straight-forward. It is practical and easily applied. It is not “fluff” and “hype” about leadership but gets down to the real issues that will distinguish you as a leader whose family, neighbors, company and country will honor. Are you tired of the “mediocre” and ready to become a “model of good works” (Titus 2: 7, ESV)? Take the “model man” journey from “integrity to legacy.” Develop a small group of men who will allow each chapter to look into their lives, their heart, their thought life, their motives, and their money. It is our genuine belief that when you reach the “legacy” chapter, you will be a TOTALLY DIFFERENT MAN: “a model man!”
