Is the Hope of Heaven Beautiful or Boring?

Article by

Founder & Teacher,

In five minutes, John Piper describes the beauty and wonder of a never-ending life in God’s presence. When you think about spending a trillion years in heaven, does that hope feel satisfying or boring? Piper reminds us from 1 Peter why an eternity of climbing the mountain of God’s glory will only ever thrill and fulfill you.

Look at the Book is John Piper’s latest effort to help teach people to read the Bible for themselves. It’s an ongoing series of 8–12 minute videos in which the camera is on the text, not the teacher.

As part of this new initiative, Desiring God is putting on regional events focused on certain passages of Scripture. Below, you can find all the video from our Look at the Book weekend on 1 Peter 1–2. The clip above is from Part 6: Born Again to a Living Hope.
