John Piper delivers yet another solid, full-of-truth, full-of-hope book.  Piper is concise, Biblically-based, and encouraging to the reader.  Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to review this!

Piper is an author whose writings always provoke much soul searching and thinking. These devotions are no exception. They cover a wide rage of topics from a pastor's point of view. There are 120 devotions which can actually last a year because you could either start over once you are finish or meditate on each one for three days. (there is enough truth in each one to meditate for three days or more).
I was given a free copy of the book by NetGalley from Thomas Nelson. The opinions in this review are completely my own.

John Piper's meditations are, not surprisingly, Scriptural faithful and personally uplifting. He helps the reader see God, and savor what he sees. Anyone who spends time staring at the truths of the Bible alongside Piper will be spending it wisely.

I'm not a fan of Devotional Books. I find them all to be superficial. This book stands out, because Piper's meditations are founded on very unique and deep questions that are rarely addressed. The question on nakedness I found to be interesting and a good start to a discussion on the theme of nakedness in the Bible. There are many more chapters that I found intriguing and would recommend this book at least to give you many conversation starters

John Piper sticks true to his roots and what his desiringgod readers have come to expect with this latest devotional. 'The Satisfied Soul' is both thought-provoking and uplifting.

John Piper gives his readers 120 devotions in this book. They all point towards seeking and desiring God more than anything else. A wonderful way to start the day!

If you enjoy desiringgod.org like I do, you will enjoy this amazing 120-day devotional that directs you to reach for a satisfied soul in the One who is worthy with a thought to ponder throughout your day.  Each devotional is named and you could choose to skip around but I enjoyed reading them as they came.   Each one comes as a challenge in different areas and ways.  Like most devotionals, you’ll find some you like more or that hit harder than others.  That’s why it’s great to have 1/3 of a year’s worth of devotionals to choose from.
I received a digital copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

This is the first devotional I've ever read by this author, and I have not yet read through every one. There are 120 devotionals on a wide range of topics that we confront in our daily lives: suffering, loss, maritial issues, stereotypes/racism, terrorism/justice, sin, and the need for faith/trust in God. This collection appears to be scripture-based and contains the pastor's advice/interpretation on the topics. The meditations are compelling, "deep," and inspirational. Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for the ARC of this book.
