Desiring God DVD by John Piper

The desire to have an intimate relationship with God is something that many claim to want. But desiring the relationship is not enough. John Piper  shows us from scripture that it is not enough just to want a relationship with God. We should desire God Himself.

In this dvd study, Piper shows us what he means by desiring God. “God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.” This is the mantra of Piper’s life and ministry. Piper sets the foundation for Christian hedonism by walking us through the influences (mainly scripture) that formed his thinking. He moves on to how this impacts our lives. Finally, he gives us instruction on how to keep the desire burning.

This presentation is saturated with scripture and practical, personal examples. If you have ever heard Piper you know that he is a gifted communicator. This presentation is no exception. My six year old daughter insisted on watching the whole ten-part series with me. The picture is excellent and the audio was flawless. You can hear every word and inflection but it is not so sensitive that you hear every nose whistle.One word of caution: this is but a bird’s eye view of the book. There were many verses and quotes that Piper simply did not have time to present. It will leave you wanting more. For that I would recommend the book. Even if you have already read the book you will benefit from hearing this straight from the man in all his passion for the subject.

I received this DVD series for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
