The Bible reveals glorious things. And yet we often miss its power because we read it the same way we read any other book.

In doing so, he highlights the Bible's unique ability to reveal God to humanity in a way that informs our minds, transforms our hearts, and ignites our love. With insights into the biblical text drawn from decades of experience studying, preaching, and teaching Scripture, Piper helps us experience the transformative power of God's Word—a power that extends beyond the mere words on the page. Ultimately, Piper shows us that in the seemingly ordinary act of reading the Bible, something supernatural happens: we encounter the living God.

Not interesting, but necessary and enjoyable
If you believe in the thesis of the book, that reading the Bible is not merely an act of nature but requires the supernatural hand of God for full understanding, this is a great book. He used lots of scripture and pounds his points hard sometimes multiple times. This book could have been shorter because several issues are repeated, however it seemed necessary because he shows how lots of different scripture points to the same topics. It could be shorter, but if you listen with intent to learn and grow and develop the thesis as second nature in your reading, the repetition is a great tool. I enjoyed The book.

The audio was wonderfully produced. Four stars for the content of book. The reading is a definitely a five. Thank you.
The reading was well read. The content of the book is compelling and educational. The writing is in the classic style of John Piper ... repetitious for learning and easy to understand.

Puts life and joy back into bible study
This book is read well. Piper seeks to puts life and joy back into bible reading and study. His book is a guide of sorts to reading yourself aflame and full. Piper will not accept a mere shallow, dry, dreary, reading of God's word which is filled with the glory of the triune God. This is a great antidote to the shallow interaction that plagues us all.
