Publisher's Summary

The Bible reveals glorious things. And yet we often miss its power because we read it the same way we read any other book. In Reading the Bible Supernaturally, best-selling author John Piper teaches us how to read the Bible in light of its divine author. In doing so, he highlights the Bible's unique ability to reveal God to humanity in a way that informs our minds, transforms our hearts, and ignites our love.

With insights into the biblical text drawn from decades of experience studying, preaching, and teaching scripture, Piper helps us experience the transformative power of God's word - a power that extends beyond the mere words. Ultimately, Piper shows us that in the seemingly ordinary act of reading the Bible, something supernatural happens: we encounter the living God.

Book was great, narrator was mediocre

The book was another masterpiece by John Piper. However, the person the had reading the book in the audiobook formatting was mediocre. He did not convey emotion, and Piper is a very emotive pastor and writer, so the narrator did a disservice to the book, to Piper, and to the listener.

Deep Breath

I say deep breath because one, it was incredible hearing Piper dig into how he's come to reading the Bible, two, there's so much more to learn, and three, it's going to be a long journey to read and study this book over and over again.

READING THE BIBLE SUPERNATURALLY

This is a must have for your Library. This Book is read naturally and truly is an asset to explain the Bible simply without taking any thing away from it.

Love Piper, not this narration

When they made this audio recording they decided it necessary to read every citation, which being a book about the bible are many. It made it too much of a chore to follow the content, never even made it through chapter one.

Reading citations detracts.

I could not listen and get the flow of thought because every citation was read. I returned it to Audible. I may try it in print so that I can skip over the citations when not important to me.

Informative

So much to learn about Gods Word , this clarifies more. The last couple of chapters were more for pastors I believe, however I still learned from it, it was just harder to comprehend or grasp some of his writing

J P my friend each day on the way to work.

For some years now JP has spoken to me about Jesus and together with a few others has inspired me to go deeper with God. This particular audio book is perhaps his most intriguing because one gains more detail of the intricate way the Holy Spirit has guided him and can each of us, to read and study and live out the life offered through the scriptures which we need to understand are In a real sense Jesus incarnate as well. As we do this we begin to see more of His glory and are never the same again. Thank you JP.

Not What I Hoped For/Expected

The book, in the three chapters I listened to, failed to do what I felt its title described: discuss the supernatural with connection to the Bible... in any form. I love apologetics, and this was more what this book was. Incredibly disappointed. I actually want my money back.

Good book but narration is lacking

While the info in this book has been greatly beneficial to me, it was a struggle to get through. The narrator's voice sounded computerised and uninvolved with the material.

Listen again

A blessing of epic proportions and eternal value. That God has given us His Word to Read is a deep blessing I have yet to fully realise. So all I can and must do is READ and pray!!!
