Multnomah Books Battling Unbelief, DVD

In ten 30-minute sessions, pastor John Piper shows how to sever the clinging roots of sin that ensnare us, including anxiety, pride, shame, impatience, covetousness, bitterness, despondency, and lust. Delighting in the bounty of God's glorious gospel promises, will free us for a less sin-encumbered life, to the glory of Christ. Rooted in solid biblical reflection, this study aims to help guide you through the battles to the joys of victory by the power of the gospel and its superior pleasure. Study guides are sold separately: WW529200.

Having watched the series once over the course of two nights, my wife and I immediately watched it again the following week. After that, our Tuesday night study watched it over the course of ten weeks.Looking back on the various viewings, watching "Battling Unbelief" quickly, as if one were at the conference, allows more to sink in. The pieces come together without some of last week's thoughts fading away.We would recommend it to anyone who desires to understand what "Living by Faith in Future Grace" means, such that it can be applied in everyday life, make a big bowl of popcorn and press on through the CD's quickly.

I have deep appreciation for John Piper but this DVD study was quite disappointing. The format, presentation and general approach to the teaching is very difficult to follow. I do not question the Biblical basis for the instruction but there needs to be more balance between the expository presentation of Scripture and the practical application of what is presented. I would recommend that anyone find a way to preview the material if possible before purchasing. Otherwise it will require an exceptional level of attention and commitment to complete the study. Again, I deeply appreciate the message of John Piper but I cannot bring myself to recommend this particular study.
