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.

Wonderful but very, very long intro
I see that some people quit after listening for a while. I was tempted to. I think you can skip part 1. It is 10 chapters telling you how wonderful the Bible is, not by example or stories, but doctrinally. The reading is stiff for this part because the content is stiff.
Part 2 is much better and Part 3 makes the book worthwhile. The reading is excellent in these parts. He also refers you to BibleArc.com, which I am using as a resource to learn more.

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.
