The Blazing Center

What is the difference between believing in God and viewing Him as your treasure? Does God occupy the center of your life like the solar system is oriented around the sun?

The Blazing Center: The Soul-Satisfying Supremacy of God in All Things, a study guide designed to accompany John Piper’s excellent book Desiring God: Meditations of a Christian Hedonist, uses daily Bible study and thoughtful reflection to wrestle with these and related questions.

The daily studies in the book are short, but in light of how big the questions are and how much thought you might need to give them, that might be for the best.  Although I don’t think think this book replaces Desiring God, I think it would be helpful to use as a study guide in addition to reading the longer book.  The study guide has an accompanying DVD too, which could be helpful if you plan to do the study in a group.
