Item description for Battling Unbelief: Defeating Sin with Superior Pleasure by John Piper...

Popular pastor and bestselling author Piper equips readers to live by faith in future grace and demolish the struggles that stem from anxiety, pride, impatience, bitterness, lust, and more.

Publishers Description
When Faith Flickers, Stoke the Fire
No one sins out of duty. We sin because it offers some promise of happiness. That promise enslaves us-until we believe that God is more desirable than life itself (Psalm 63:3). Only the power of God's superior promises in the gospel can emancipate our hearts from servitude to the shallow promises and fleeting pleasures of sin.
Pastor John Piper shows how to sever the clinging roots of sin that ensnare us, including anxiety, pride, shame, impatience, covetousness, bitterness, despondency, and lust.
Delighting in the bounty of God's glorious gospel promises will free us for a less sin-encumbered life, to the glory of Christ. Rooted in solid biblical reflection, this book aims to help guide you through the battles to the joys of victory by the power of the gospel and its superior pleasure.

Reviews - What do customers think about Battling Unbelief: Defeating Sin with Superior Pleasure?

Excellent material, but...  Nov 20, 2008
This is a first for me--considering a John Piper book worthy of only three stars, that is. I think that Piper is one of the finest Christian writers on the scene (I have several of his books, as well as several of his cd sets), and I would consider virtually everything he has written five-star material. I think the content of this book is also excellent. However, I was rather disappointed to discover, when the book arrived, that this book is adapted from eight chapters of Piper's book Future Grace, which I already have in my library and have read cover to cover. (It says that in tiny print on the cover of the book, but you can't read that on the cover of the picture on this site--in fact, they don't even have the picture of the cover of the Battling Unbelief on the website next to the book, but rather that of the Battling Unbelief STUDY GUIDE--so you can't actually see that it says, "Adapted from Future Grace.") Pretty much all of the material in this book, plus a lot more, is in in Future Grace. Looking back at the description here at this site, that is clear if you read the AudioFile description, but not the product description itself. I felt even more gypped when I saw that Future Grace was even less expensive than Battling Unbelief. So, if you don't have either book, I guess you could buy Battling Unbelief, but Future Grace is much more complete and a much better deal. Battling Unbelief might be a nice gift for someone who doesn't read much or at least who isn't likely to read 400 pages of a theology-oriented book (although Future Grace is very readable). However, I highly recommend that you buy Future Grace instead, even if for now you only want to read the application chapters from which Battling Unbelief was adapted.
Excellent and motivational description of the connection between faith and obeying God!  Mar 18, 2008
We have a habit of wasting energy in our battle to overcome sin because we miss the connection that sin is the fruit of NOT trusting God. Piper does an excellent job showing the connection between a lack of faith and 8 specific sins. We need to understand this if we want to make progress in participating in the divine nature and escaping the corruption in the world that is caused by evil desires(2 Peter 1:3-4). This book WILL help you on your journey.
"Unbeliefable" Book!!!  Oct 22, 2007
Wow! Piper hits a home run on almost every page of this "getting to the root of the problem" book! You'll be challenged to see what is the real issue when it comes to lust, anxiety, fear, etc. Very powerful and life changing material. The key is to lean heavily on God and His Word.

Superior Joy  Aug 23, 2007
This is vintage Piper condensing his 'Future Grace' material for the benefit of battling temptation, with its offers of pleasure, with the the superior promises of the gospel.
life-changing book!  Jul 18, 2007
The thoughts in this book have revolutionized my Christian life, bringing deeper joy in Christ. I cannot recommend this book highly enough!
