DVD Review ~ Desiring God by John Piper

I chose to review this DVD because I wanted something for my sons to study in their upcoming semester for Bible but we have thoroughly enjoyed sitting together as a family and learn about being a Christian hedonist. My husband and I had read the book in the past, but I had a hard time with the book. I am much more visual and so are my sons so this was a fantastic way for us to get this teaching!

This is a seminar format and very easy to follow, even without the study guide that can be purchased through Desiring God, John Piper's website. There are 10 sessions, 19-26 minutes in length, so that maximum comprehension is gained in the shortest amount of time. As my oldest son said, "He doesn't give so much information that you feel lost. Just the right amount and I don't lose focus." (I translate that to mean he isn't 'tuning him out'.)

Pastor Piper is so engaging. It is a blessing to hear him speak. His enthusiasm and passion for Christ is overwhelming at times but always so encouraging. He has a natural ability to draw the listener in and communicate the importance of being passionate for God and God's passion for us! This has been a terrific way to understand what a Christian hedonist is.

I highly recommend this dvd for anyone who would like to know more about being a Christian hedonist and how to “glorify God by enjoying Him forever.”
