Reading The Bible Supernaturally

by John Piper

There has been no other book besides the Bible that has made a greater impact in my life on seeing and savoring the glory of God.

“This is how God has designed the Scriptures to work for human transformation and for the glory of God: the Scriptures reveal God’s glory. This glory, God willing, is seen by those who read the Bible. This seeing gives rise, by God’s grace, to savoring God above all things—treasuring him, hoping in him, feeling him as our greatest reward, tasting him as our all-satisfying good. And this savoring transforms our lives—freeing us from the slavery of selfishness and overflowing in love to others. This joy-sustained, God-exalting transformation of love is then seen by others, who, by God’s grace, glorify God because of it.”

John Piper

Knowing God

by J.I. Packer

Want to know more about the attributes of God? This book takes the glorious attributes of God and breaks them down dedicating a chapter to each one. Great for an in-depth study with your life group and does not have to be read like a novel. Great for bouncing around as to whatever peaks your interest and is an easy go-to resource when you want to revisit a certain attribute.

“Meditation is the activity of calling to mind, and thinking over, and dwelling on, and applying to oneself, the various things that one knows about the works and ways and purposes and promises of God. It is an activity of holy thought, consciously performed in the presence of God, under the eye of God, by the help of God, as a means of communion with God.” 

J.I. Packer
