Desiring God--DVD [Review]

Desiring God--DVD set
John Piper

About This Book (from publisher)

The Pursuit of Pleasure Is Not Optional. It Is Essential

In this DVD version of Desiring God—the classic description of Christian hedonism—John Piper explains how the supreme calling of life is to "glorify God by enjoying Him forever." 
    Drawing upon Scripture after Scripture, Piper shows why pursuing maximum joy is essential to glorifying God and, in what may be surprising to some, how God is ready to pursue with all His might our pleasure in Him! The implications of this truth are discussed in regard to conversion, worship, love, Scripture, prayer, money, marriage, missions, and suffering.

   In ten sessions Piper teaches on:

   • One Great Mission and Motivation
   • A Summary of Christian Hedonism
   • The Foundation of Christian Hedonism
   • The Essence of Christian Hedonism
   • The Grand Obligation
   • How Then Shall We Fight for Joy?

Recorded in HD with subtitles in English, these video sessions are ideal for use in adult and youth Sunday-school classes, small groups, retreats, classrooms, and families. To get the most from this resource, use it along with the Desiring God DVD Study Guide.

I love to get my hands on any of Piper's writings whenever I have the time and energy.  Unfortunately, time and mental processes are running seriously low at this stage in the game and I love that I was able to review this DVD study while multitasking.  What an amazing way to keep your mind focusing on the "greater things" while practically playing with kids and folding laundry! Because I love this book--and now DVD--I went ahead and purchased the companion study guide so that when I DO have the time to really dig deep and get into this study even more, I can really get the most of it.  Piper never fails me when it comes to viewing Scripture with renewed vision.  He just makes sense and I love that I have to really digest his thoughts in order to comprehend what  he's saying. 

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review
