Look at the Book: Reading the Bible for Yourself

This will be the twelfth and final Desiring God National Conference, at least as we have known them. Unlike past conferences, John Piper will give five sessions himself. In two, he will unfold the biblical foundations for reading your Bible, and in the other three, he will model his method of inductive Bible study, taking Romans 8 — the greatest chapter in the Bible — as his text. After September, we’ll be reinventing our annual National Conference as regional Look at the Book events that focus on learning to read the Bible for yourself in different passages of Scripture.
