Overview

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.

Biblical and Theological: Piper examines Jesus’s commands and explains their context, meaning, and application today

Comprehensive: Features Scripture, person, and subject indexes

Accessible: Written in a clear, engaging tone, this book is an excellent resource for new and seasoned believers alike, and for use in discipling younger believers

Written by Bestselling Author John Piper: Other books include Providence; Desiring God; and Don’t Waste Your Life

  • Examines Jesus’s commands and explains their context, meaning, and application today
  • Written in a clear, engaging tone
  • Replaces What Jesus Demands from the World
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.

—Sinclair B. Ferguson, Chancellor’s Professor of Systematic Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary; Teaching Fellow, Ligonier Ministries

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.

—Andreas J. Köstenberger, Theologian in Residence, Fellowship Raleigh, North Carolina; Cofounder, Biblical Foundations

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.

—T. Desmond Alexander, Senior Lecturer in Biblical Studies, Union Theological College

John Piper

John Piper (b. 1946) is a widely respected theologian and bestselling author who serves as founder and lead teacher at Desiring God and is chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary. For 33 years, Piper served as pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church. He has authored more than 50 books, and more than 30 years of his preaching and writing are available free of charge at desiringGod.org. Piper resides in the Minneapolis area with his wife of 51 years, and has five children and 14 grandchildren.

Piper attended Wheaton College where he majored in literature and minored in philosophy. He completed his Bachelor of Divinity at Fuller Theological Seminary, where he studied under Dr. Daniel Fuller. Piper received his Doctorate in Theology from the University of Munich and taught biblical studies for six years at Bethel College.

In 1994, Piper founded Desiring God Ministries, which provides Piper’s sermons, articles, and information on titles he has authored. One of his bestsellers, Desiring God: Meditations of a Christian Hedonist, prompted the name of the ministry.

Several of Piper’s books have been Evangelical Christian Publishers Association Christian book award winners including What Jesus Demands from the World, Pierced by the Word, and God’s Passion for His Glory. The Crossway John Piper Collection (39 vols.) includes 39 titles from Piper, including Love Your Enemies and A Hunger for God. His preaching ministry of more than 30 years is available in the John Piper Sermon Archive (1980–2014).

    From the introduction to this book: "This book was originally published in 2006 under the title, What Jesus Demands from the World. This new edition with a new title is substantially the same with minor revisions and rearrangements." Logos already offers "What Jesus Demands from the World" for $13.99. The new edition of this book is currently being offered as a free PDF download on Piper's site.

    I would like to know what substantial difference there is between this resource and What Jesus Demands from the World (https://www.logos.com/product/4063/what-jesus-demands-from-the-world).
