According to Jonathan Edwards, joy is a central and essential aspect of what it means for God to be God and for humans to glorify God.

So John Piper will teach us as he lectures on the theology of Jonathan Edwards and his enduring relevance for the life of faith and the fidelity of the church. Join us tomorrow, April 22, as Dr. Piper delivers the fourth annual Jonathan Edwards and the Church Lecture series, co-sponsored with the Jonathan Edwards Center. (Learn more about the Edwards lectures here.)
