Situation

Historically it has been illegal for anyone in Nepal to be a Christian, except for a short time in the 18th Century. In 1951 the country opened up to outside influences, including missionaries bringing medical help. Nepalis who had come to Christ outside the country moved with the missionaries into the country and began to share their faith. Churches were planted. After a period of slow growth and some persecution these congregations have blossomed and multiplied across the whole country. Most followers of Christ in Nepal are first generation believers and are eager for instruction in their new faith. There is a great need of high quality resources for pastors to help them nurture their people.

The Resource

Each of us is hard-wired to pursue our happiness. We long for significant, profound joy. 

In The Dangerous Duty of Delight, John Piper turns our heart toward the one true object of human desire and happiness: God. Piper shows from Scripture that pursuing our happiness in Christ is not optional for the Christian, but essential.

Come along on a journey from desperate desire to infinite delight. Learn how you were created for ultimate satisfaction in Him, and how this new perspective will change your attitudes toward worship, relationships, material goods—and everything.

“Our hearts are restless until they find their rest in Thee.” —Saint Augustine
