God-Centered Living: PDF Download


God-Centered Living: Christian Hedonism and the Life of Faith is a 12-week course designed to introduce students to the dangerous duty of delighting in God and how that plays out in living the day-to-day Christian life by faith. This course is an introduction to Christian Hedonism, a philosophy of life that is built on the God of the Bible. The course unfolds two key assertions: 1) the God-centeredness of God informs every aspect of the Christian life; and 2) the pursuit of God’s glory and the pursuit of our joy is the same pursuit. Therefore, “God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him.” In this course, students will examine key biblical passages and then thoughtfully interact with some of the central writings of Dr. John Piper: Desiring God, God Is the Gospel, and Future Grace. Biblical study, critical reflection, group discussion, and application are all important components of this course.
