Look at the Book - John Piper

                                 


It's easy to slip through life without taking any risks-without making your life count. But life ought not be wasted. You don't need to know a lot of things to make a lasting difference in the world, but you do have to know the few, great, unchanging, and glorious things that matter and be willing to live and to die for them.


John Piper's plea to a generation is, "Don't waste your life!" This book is a passionate call to make your life count for eternity. He acknowledges that there are risks for those who seek to make a lasting difference by faith, yet he believes that they are risks worth taking for the cause of the Gospel.

Crossway Books (Wheaton, Illinois)


“If you live gladly to make others glad in God, your life will be hard, your risks will be high, and your joy will be full.

This is not a book about how to avoid a wounded life, but how to avoid a wasted life.

Some of you will die in the service of Christ. That will not be a tragedy. Treasuring life above Christ is a tragedy”

                                 
                                 
                                 
                                 
                                 
                                 
                                 
There’s No Book Like The Bible
Learn to read it for yourself


Look at the Book is a new online method of teaching the Bible. It’s an ongoing series of 8–12 minute videos in which the camera is on the text, not the teacher. You will hear John Piper’s voice and watch his pen underline, circle, make connections, and scribble notes — all to help you learn to read God’s word for yourself. His goal is to help you not only see what he sees, but where he sees it and how he found it. There are 50 Lab Sessions currently available on iTunes you can download for free.
