Item description for Future Grace by John Piper...

Overview
Many men and women attempt to walk upright out of gratitude for what Christ did in the past, but Piper encourages believers to look ahead to what the grace God provides for on a day-by-day, moment-by-moment basis.

Publishers Description
In Future Grace, author John Piper helps readers discover the key to overcoming sin and living a life that honors God. Many men and women attempt to walk upright out of gratitude for what Christ did in the past, but Piper encourages believers to look ahead to the grace God provides for us on a day-by-day, moment-by-moment basis—putting faith into action by laying hold of God’s promises for the challenges we face.

Sever the Root of Sin

No one sins out of duty. We sin because we want to. Sin promises happiness, and we buy the lie. So how can the root of sin be severed in our lives? The penalty of sin must be paid by the righteous blood of Christ. And the power of sin must be broken by banking on the promises of Christ.

John Piper’s meditations are rooted in rock-solid biblical reflection. Chapter by chapter—one for each day of the month—he reveals how, by cherishing the promises of God, you can break the power of anxiety, despondency, covetousness, lust, bitterness, impatience, pride, misplaced shame, and more.
John Piper, the preaching pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis since 1980, is the author of numerous books and a senior writer for World magazine. He received his doctorate in theology from the University of Munich and taught biblical studies for six years at Bethel College, St. Paul, before becoming a pastor. He and his wife, Noel, have four sons and one daughter.

Reviews - What do customers think about Future Grace?

Surprising and so comforting  Sep 30, 2008
John Piper surprises you in this book by taking simple concepts and basic truths and making them vivid and real to a daily life of a Christian, struggling to please His Master. Not only does Piper remind the readers what is the essence of our faith and how to live by faith in the future grace, but he also gives glimpses into how this is lived out practically, challenging how we view our relationships, our attitudes, our possessions and our longings. This book will challenge one and will teach one about the great God of the future grace that He pours out and will make one want to live by faith in this grace. I highly recommend this book.
 
Faith in Future Grace  May 19, 2008
~Future Grace~ by John Piper offers a powerful message to quell anxiety in the heart of the believer, in light of the riches of God's Future Grace. What is grace? It's something given to someone not deserved. John Piper informs the reader of how they can find solace in the promises of God, in light of His abundant future grace. Piper begins his book by reminding the born again believer of the debtor's ethic. A true Christian should become imbued by humility in light of what God has done for him, and fathom the riches of his grace and glory in Christ Jesus. Future Grace may be conceptualized as the promises in God, both earthly and eternal, which are bestowed upon believers. Some promises are conditional, like Romans 8:28. We must love God to know his love. Piper givens encouragement to believers all the same of how they can embrace all of God's promises. This book stands in accord with the 'Christian Hedonism' theme of Piper's erstwhile books like Desiring God. The one downside to this book is it's very substantive...

Future Grace is not the first one in the trilogy that I would recommend to those readers new to Piper, because it is too profound. 'Desiring God,' and 'When I Don't Desire God,' are better to start with in my humble opinion. This should be read after those.
 
Good Points to meditate on   Feb 2, 2008
To conquer sin, we must put our trust in future grace and not just act in gratitude for what Christ has done for us. We must act on the promises of God both current and future. I don't know if I put as clean of distinction on it as Piper does, but he definitely raises some issues we must consider. His emphasis on works arising out of faith and that works is the proof of our faith (not the origins of our faith) is good. Future Grace helps to endure suffering joyfully for the joy set before us.

This book took me a long time to get through and I need to go through it again. In the last chapter he shows how the concepts of Future Grace and Desiring God and the theology of Jonathan Edwards dovetail together. This book is deep and there is much to meditate on and to be encouraged by. It seems to wander a bit, but once one sees the whole picture he is painting, one can understand the argument better. This book leads the reader gently into some very profound Reformed truths. This is another Piper book I will put aside and read again.
 
A Classic  Jan 28, 2006
This is a wonderful book with a fresh perspective on the importance of faith in future grace. It, along with most of Piper's other works, is very passionate and expressive. Seeing how many aspects of future grace Piper covers is amazing and this book will definately keep your attention (although it is rather long).

There is not much else to say, other than a hearty recommendation of this book and the warning that you better be ready for long read (since Piper is so expressive, it isn't easy to skim).
 
Most Needed Theology in Modern Christianity  Nov 3, 2005
The theology explained in this book is one of the most neglected corners of the gospel in our day. We live in a day when people are taught that you can be a Christian and live like a pagan at the same time. Grace doesn't only justify; grace also makes us holy. "The just shall live by faith." This is simply the most profound, Scripture-drenched books I have ever read. God changed my heart and broke down some significant barriers in my life through the truths in this book just this past summer as I read it. Thank God for John Piper and his work for us in the book! The subtitle is most fitting: "The purifying power of living by faith in future grace".
