Have you ever wanted to peer over your favorite bible teacher/paster as they are doing their private bible study, or preparing to teach. Thanks to new ground-breaking method, John Piper is allowing us to do just that. Desiring God describes it as.
…a new online method of teaching the Bible. It’s an ongoing series of 8–12 minute videos in which the camera is on the text, not the teacher. You will hear John Piper’s voice and watch his pen underline, circle, make connections, and scribble notes — all to help you learn to read God’s word for yourself. His goal is to help you not only see what he sees, but where he sees it and how he found it.
John Piper compares this new method of bible study to watching a chef cook so that you know how its done instead of just feasting on the finished meal. This new series already has 50+ lessons and new ones are added on a regular basis. You can find all of the Look at the Book lessons under the Labs section of the Desiring God website and more information on the process used and John Piper's motivation behind Look at the Book can be found in the following blog posts:
