Rating: 5/5 John Piper's devotional Taste and See gets its title from Psalm 34:8:
"Otaste and see that theLordis good;
How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!"
Piper's purpose for this devotional is to help readers taste and see God's supremacy. The book is broken down into 125 short devotions. The topics vary from "The Exuberant Omnipotence of God" to "If You Believe You Will See the Glory or God" to How to Speak About God When He Hurts Us."
Each devotion takes only minutes to read but leaves me reflecting on it throughout the day. The topics are revealing of God's character, and everything Piper says is based on Scripture. Piper does a great job integrating Scripture into everything he writes.
I have thoroughly enjoyed beginning my mornings with a cup of coffee and Piper's Taste and See. I recommend this book to anyone that wants to taste and see God's supremacy. Piper's writing is honest, direct and Biblical.
