5PIPER12xx.jpgThis September, John Piper will be launching an initiative inspired by the legacy he wants to leave. Look at the Book is a new online method of teaching the Bible. It’s an ongoing series of 5–10 minute videos in which the camera is on the text, not the teacher. You will hear John’s voice and watch his pen underline, circle, make connections, and scribble notes — all to help you learn to read God’s word for yourself. His goal is to help you not only see what he sees, but where he sees it and how he found it. For more information go to desiringgod.org/blog/posts/no-book-like-the-bible

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT:

John Piper: There is no book like the Bible. The story begins with the making of the universe. Everything we see and hear and  smell and touch and taste, and everything  our satellites are just beginning to find in space, it explains what went wrong with our world, how calamity , disease and conflict, every sorrow came into our lives. And how it will all end. In the Bible, we meet God, the one who made all things, planned all things, reigns over all things, and who is saving for Himself a people  of every tongue, and tribe and nation on earth. History’s best plot lines are found in the pages of this book. Miracles, political intrigue, natural disasters, war, brokenness and need. Grace, rescue, victory, great acts of love. It’s like a lost city of gold- rediscovered and explored and treasured. A treasure hunt that never ends, and yet, rewards you at every step. The more you find, the more you are able to find. And it’s all from the mouth of God Himself.

You may think, Wait, I’ve read the Bible. You’re making it sound more interesting and exciting then it really is. I don’t think so. In fact, I think we can only ever begin to how amazing this book really is. But first, we need to learn to look. LOOK AT THE BOOK is an ongoing series of short videos  and what you see is the text, not the teacher. In each lesson, you and I will pull our chairs together, up in front of the Bible and you’ll watch while I try to plunder  every line for all it’s worth: pressing in, underlining, circling, drawing connections, making notes. Together, we will look and look and look  until we see the treasure that’s really there. We want you to see the treasures  of the Bible for yourself. And, as you do, we pray that you learn to love and obey and enjoy the God of the Bible as never before. We really believe  you’ll see things you never thought you would, as you look at the BOOK.
