Picking my next book: “Don’t Follow Your Heart” by Jon Bloom

Desiring God was one of the first ressources I discovered when I became a Christian and it was through it I would later come to discover various authors and books such as Charles Spurgeon, Richard Baxter, David Brainerd, Mere Christianity, and others books by the founder of that ministry, Dr.John Piper, such as Don’t Waste Your Life- which was kind of a milestone in my Christian life

There is a tab on the website allowing you to download for free the books published by Pastor John, and I’ve read a few of them. Recently, Jon Bloom, co-founder of DG, published Don’t Follow Your Heart.

Here is the description of the book:

Follow your heart” is a creed embraced by billions of people. It’s a statement of faith in one of the great pop-cultural myths of our day — a gospel proclaimed in many of our stories, movies, and songs. It can sound so simple, beautiful, and liberating. It’s tempting to believe.

Until you consider that your heart has sociopathic tendencies. Our hearts were never designed to be followed, but to be led. Our hearts were never meant to be gods in whom we believe, but to believe in God.

This book contains 31 meditations for recalibrating your heart. It is a collection of helps for common heart problems. Because your biggest problems in life are heart problems.

Jon Bloom will help you follow Jesus by resisting your heart’s errant predilections and directing it to do all God’s will.“- Desiring God

I’m so excited to read something about the topic of heart issues… I think books like this one are more than needed in our culture where it all revolves around emotions, feelings and, as said above, the “follow your heart” creed.

Have a blessed Sunday,
