Read the book that changed Dr. Naselli’s life
You don’t truly know someone until you know what makes them happy. Our pleasure is the measure of our character. So it is with God. We can only know the greatness of His glory if we know what makes him glad. Therefore we must understand “the pleasures of God.”
Emphasizing the foundational truth that God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him, Piper further explores a life-changing essential: We will be most satisfied in God when we know why God himself is most satisfied in God. Fully understanding the joy of God will draw you into an encounter with His overflowing, self-replenishing, all-encompassing grace– the source of living water that all Christians desire to drink. The Pleasures of God will again put God at the center of Creation and leave you very satisfied in Him.

The psalmist declared that God presides over an assembly of divine beings (Psa. 82:1). Who are they? What does it mean when those beings participate in God’s decisions (1 Kings 22:19–23)? Why wasn’t Eve surprised when the serpent spoke to her? Why are Yahweh and his Angel fused together in Jacob’s prayer (Gen. 48:15–16)? How did descendants of the Nephilim (Gen. 6:4) survive the flood (Num. 13:33)? What are we to make of Peter and Jude’s belief in imprisoned spirits (2 Pet. 2:4; Jude 6)? Why does Paul describe evil spirits in terms of geographical rulership (thrones, principalities, rulers, authorities)? Who are the “glorious ones” that even angels dare not rebuke (2 Pet. 2:10–11)?
The Unseen Realm presents the fruit of Dr. Heiser’s fifteen years of research into what the Bible really says about the unseen world of the supernatural. His goal is to help readers view the biblical text unfiltered by tradition or by theological presuppositions. “People shouldn’t be protected from the Bible,” Dr. Heiser says. But theological systems often do just that, by “explaining away” difficult or troublesome passages of Scripture because their literal meaning doesn’t fit into our tidy systems.
