The book of Hebrews point us to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith. In the 52 messages from this sermon series, John Piper exhorts us to run the race in the presence of Christ, our King—to see and savor Jesus Christ as the radiance of the glory of God.

This is maybe the best book I've ever listened that exhorts and calls to action. This has encouraged me more than words can say because my life seems to be a struggle & I know that this is how God is working in me.
This rings a bell - and I would encourage every person to listen to this book.
I will probably listen to this book no less than once a year! John Piper is very clear and very in depth in his teaching. Mr Piper breaks down each verse in such a way as to make it clear to the newest Christian, yet make it a learning experience for the mature Christian!
Clear solid theology, with Biblically sound exegesis.
You can tell by Mr Piper's voice, that he clearly believes all that he says (as do I), and that he wants nothing less than God's Gospel to come from his mouth.
While I would love to say yes, because of the quality of the teaching included, I would say that this book would be best listened to in conjunction with your own Bible study in the book of Hebrews.
Powerful messages on the Supremacy of Christ in all things.. Much to think about and put into practice. I listened on my commute and it changed the day and the drive.
I am thankful that this is available in this format!! Admittedly I am currently terrified of being like Esau, but I am thankful for the salt of the encouragement and it's timing in my life. Since
having the option to listen to whatever I want to while I work, and knowing that it's 25-30 hrs a week I can listen and learn and even redeem; this was perfect!
John Piper is a highly revered pastor among the Christian community. He is respected for his teaching, and also for his integrity. I wanted to like this book, but I cannot stand the way he speaks.
He puts a lot of emotion in his words almost like he is trying to romanticize his teaching. He tries to convey his passion for his subject, but I find it to be overdone almost to the point where I question the sincerity of his expressiveness. I fully concede that I do not know the man well enough to say that, but just for me I can only make it through about 3 of his messages before I put it down and don't get back to it.
I am disappointed that Audible doesn't have more study guides for the book of Hebrews. I would really like a scholar to teach through it and teach me more about the book than I can get from reading it on my own.
For those of you who like John Piper, I almost feel bad to rate his book so low, but in an effort to be totally honest this is one that I simply could not keep going through, and I wish I could say more positive about it.
