John Piper contends that preaching is not simply an exercise in motivational speaking. The goal of preaching is to worship God, and proclaim Him as Supreme. It is God’s desire to be glorified through the preacher, and the aim of the preacher is to respond accordingly. The Supremacy of God in Preaching is not another “how-to” guide for the pulpit ministry, but is a challenge issued toward every preacher to elevate the God of the Bible through sound Biblical preaching.

“Man-centered humans are amazed that God should withhold life and joy from his creatures. But the God-centered Bible is amazed that God should withhold judgment from sinners.” (Page 34)

“‘The great design and intention of the office of a Christian preacher [is] to restore the throne and dominion of God in the souls of men.’” (Page 25)

“Gladness and gravity should be woven together in the life and preaching of a pastor in such a way as to sober the careless soul and sweeten the burdens of the saints.” (Page 55)

“Strive for practical, earnest, glad-hearted holiness in every area of your life.” (Page 63)

“And you can mark it down: God will hide from you much of your fruit. You will see enough to be assured of his blessing, but not so much as to think you could live without it. For God aims to exalt himself, not the preacher, in this affair of preaching.” (Page 23)

Calls us back to a biblical standard for preaching, as standard exemplified by many of the pulpit giants of the past, especially Jonathan Edwards and Charles Spurgeon.

—Warren W. Wiersbe

Here’s a book that every preacher should read at least once a year. The book is a powerful antidote to the unbalanced, self-centered preaching of today.

—Erwin W. Lutzer, Senior Pastor, The Moody Church, Chicago

For 33 years, Piper served as pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church.

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.

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.
