... Show All

Longtime Pastor and Author John Piper Walks through Jesus’s Commands and Their Meaning for the Christian Life

The four Gospels are filled with commands straight from the mouth of Jesus Christ. They are not the harsh demands of a taskmaster, but Jesus's way of showing his followers who he is and how to be more like him. 

In All That Jesus Commanded, John Piper walks through Jesus’s commands, in 50 short chapters, explaining their context and meaning to help readers understand Christ’s vision of the Christian life and what he still requires today. The result is a helpful guide for thoughtful inquirers and new Christians, as well as veteran believers, whether for their own study or as a resource in disciple-making. Replaces ISBN 978-1-58134-845-3. 

  • Biblical and Theological: Piper examines Jesus’s commands and explains their context, meaning, and application today
  • Comprehensive: Features Scripture, person, and subject indexes 
  • Accessible: Written in a clear, engaging tone, this book is an excellent resource for new and seasoned believers alike, and for use in discipling younger believers
