Why I wrote this book : sustaining the sacrifice of love -- What is the difference between desire and delight? : discovering how both and neither is the goal -- The call to fight for joy in God : taking God's demand for delight seriously -- Joy in God is a gift of God : doing ourselves what must be done for us -- The fight for joy is a fight to see : valuing God through the eyes of the heart and the ears of the head -- Fighting for joy like a justified sinner : learning the secret of gutsy guilt -- The worth of God's Word in the fight for joy : seeing the measure of this mighty weapon -- How to wield the Word in the fight for joy : musing, memorizing, and the message of God -- The focus of prayer in the fight for joy : desiring all else only because we desire God -- The practice of prayer in the fight for joy : morning, noon, and evening without ceasing -- How to wield the world in the fight for joy : using all five senses to see the glory of God -- When the darkness does not lift : doing what we can while we wait for God--and joy.
