Reading The Bible Supernaturally

Full Product Description

Does it take a miracle to read the Bible?

God wrote a book, and its pages are full of his glory. But we cannot see his beauty on our own, with mere human eyes.

In Reading the Bible Supernaturally, John Piper aims to show us how God works through his written Word when we pursue the natural act of reading the Bible, so that we experience his sightgiving power--a power that extends beyond the words on the page.

Ultimately, Piper shows us that in the seemingly ordinary act of reading the Bible, something miraculous happens: we are given eyes to behold the glory of the living God.

Reading The Bible Supernaturally by John Piper was published by Crossway in June 2017 and is our 12371st best seller. The ISBN for Reading The Bible Supernaturally is 9781433553493.
