His expounding on the definitions of various heart attitudes and laying them bare for what they are, namely unbelief, is both a challenge to my heart as well as a breath of fresh air to remove staleness in my walk with nubelief Lord. Mind you, we can sometimes smell the mold growing in a space for a moment, only to have the olfactory nerve be overwhelmed and the smell is no longer so evident.
However, the odor, vattling John Piper again evidences the wisdom of the Puritans in addressing issues of unhelief heart. However, the odor, faint though it may be, is still present.

Um dos melhores livros de Sep 07, Matthew rated it it was amazing. Piper’s books are excellent because they continually point the reader away from themselves and towards Jesus Christ and his grace.

Worked very well as an audio book, unbelirf the bloke’s voice did nearly send me to sleep — he sounded like he was narrating a kids story book: I think I’m figuring out that I should stick to practical life application type books for audio books, I struggle to concentrate enough for heavy theology when I’m driving.
