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 Reading the Bible Supernaturally, best-selling author John Piper teaches us how to read the Bible in light of its divine author. 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.
- Beware: references read aloud
I really was looking forward to reading this book, and I still might buy the paper version, but this audio version is laboriously unpleasant. The sound of the narrator’s voice is robotic and if it was the only issue, I could get past it. The problem with this book is they chose to read every scripture reference aloud and it breaks up the flow because there are so many references. I love that he uses so much scripture in his writing, but I can’t follow along with these breaking up most sentences.
