In the four Gospels, Jesus Christ makes many demands, which are addressed both to his followers and to others. These demands show us who Jesus is and what he expects of us. They are not the harsh requirements of a taskmaster, however, but rather the command of the life-giver to come and have life. What Jesus demands from the world can be summed up as 'Trust and treasure me above all.'
In What Jesus Demands from the World, John Piper has gathered many of Jesus' demands from the Gospels. He provides a brief outline of Jesus' person and work to set his demands in context, and then examines them in fifty concise chapters. In this way he offers an accessible introduction for thoughtful enquirers who would like to know Jesus, new believers who are getting to know him, and established believers who want to know him better.
