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.

Scholars, popularists, and now even novelists are falling over each other today in a blind passion to discover an alternative Jesus to the One so magnificently portrayed in the biblical Gospels. In stark and refreshing contrast John Piper clear-sightedly demonstrates that the only Jesus worth living for and worth dying for is the biblical Jesus.

This is now my favorite book by John Piper. In the best tradition of Adolf Schlatter’s Do We Know Jesus? and his ‘hermeneutic of perception,’ All That Jesus Commanded has changed my life and will certainly change yours because it is based on the pure words of Jesus as revealed in the four Gospels. A must-read for every true follower of Christ.

Jesus Christ’s gift of salvation is free and cannot be earned, but the call to follow him is costly, demanding faithful obedience to his commands. With this in view, John Piper sets out with clarity the expectations that Jesus places upon his followers. Drawing from all four Gospels, he offers a challenging analysis of Jesus’s commands that promotes a balanced and robust view of what it is to be a Christian in the twenty-first century.
