Publisher's Summary

God has provided a way for all people, not just scholars, to know that the Bible is the word of God. John Piper has devoted his life to showing us that the glory of God is the object of the soul's happiness. Now, his burden in this book is to demonstrate that this same glory is the ground of the mind's certainty.

God's peculiar glory shines through his word. The spirit of God enlightens the eyes of our hearts. And in one self-authenticating sight, our minds are sure, and our hearts are satisfied. Justified certainty and solid joy meet in the peculiar glory of God.

Needs a different narrator

Maybe other listeners are enjoying this reading just fine, but to my ear, the narrator seems to have an edge to his voice, as if the text is his side of an argument that is starting to irritate him. I don't sense any affinity for the content or for John Piper's voice. If the audiobook were the only way to read it, I would stick with it, but since an ebook is available I am going to switch to it.

A gem worth listening to.

This was an absolute gem of a book. There was so much richness and depth. It wasn’t a book one could listen to quickly. In fact, I probably relisten to every part many times because there was so much.

I found such joy in knowing His Glory, but also had a deep sadness, because of how much I neglect to recognise it.

My favourite line by far was when looking at the stars, don’t get blinded/distracted by the street lights.

Thank you to the narrator for doing a superb job!

Great read, brilliant illustrations

Brilliant illustrations to explain difficult theology. Narrator is somewhat boring. Looking forward to reading the next one in the series.

God is good ... all the time.

It is a blessing to hear God speaking through His faithful servant of 70 years. Thought provoking, and eye opening. Must order book to read now.

A great piece of work

This book really showed that God is more glorified with our love for him, because he loves us first.
