Course Offerings: The Pleasures of God

MBBI offers courses in a variety of formats. Most courses are offered in a semester format, meeting once per week concurrent with the semesters of the public school. We have fall, spring, and summer semesters. Other courses are offered in a seminar format, occurring in blocks of time rather than being spread out weekly through a semester. If you have any questions about the course offerings listed below, do not hesitate to make an inquiry via email ( or by calling our offices (281.576.2297).

Beginning Spring of 2014

The Pleasures of God: God’s Delight in Being God

The Pleasures of God: God’s Delight in Being God is a twelve-week course that considers the worth and excellency of God through the lens of God’s pleasures. This class will investigate the biblical teaching on one pleasure of God in each lesson. This course is designed to lead the student to magnify the worth of the happy God in a more meaningful and personal way by treasuring him in their heart above all else. We recognize that this, the ultimate objective of the course, is impossible apart from the grace of God in the working of the Holy Spirit, who exalts the risen Lord, Jesus Christ. Students will carefully examine the biblical text, thoughtfully interact with John Piper’s book, The Pleasures of God, and think through certain aspects of the doctrine of God. The aim of the course is to expand students’ vision of God so that they might come to share in the very joys of God himself.


Course Length: 12 weeks
Suggested Class Time: 2 hours/week
