In six 30-minute presentations, Pastor John Piper unpacks what it means to behold and delight in Jesus above all things.

In 2 Corinthians, the apostle Paul described one of the central problems facing humanity in every age: people fail to see Christ for who he is. Even those who have caught a glimpse of him do not see perfectly, says best-selling author John Piper. But it is important that we not only learn to see him but delight in him and the truth of the gospel.

This series and its companion study guide explore the meaning and significance of these ideas in a guided group study. Each of Piper's six 30-minute presentations will equip Sunday school teachers, small group leaders, Christian educators, and parents in directing people's understanding of these topics so that viewers will learn to behold and delight in Jesus more than anything this world has to offer.

In ten, fifteen-minute presentations, John Piper instructs small groups and classes in the essentials of making their lives count for eternity.

Most people slip by in life without a passion for God, spending their lives on trivial diversions, living for comfort and pleasure... and perhaps trying to avoid sin. Yet as John Piper teaches in this series and its companion materials, God has designed us for far more than this. We just have to awaken to the simple, biblical reality that "to live is Christ, and to die is gain." This valuable resource-part of the redesigned Don't Waste Your Life Group Study Kit-can assist churches, small groups, and teachers in that task.

Designed to be used in a ten-session, guided group study along with the companion components in the kit, each fifteen-minute presentation explores the meaning and significance of making one's life count for eternity. Piper's rich teaching is a useful tool any leader or facilitator can use to direct members' understanding and guide them to treasure Christ above all.

In addition to the ten 15-minute sessions, which is designed for a guided group setting and works in tandem with the Don't Waste Your Life Group Study material, this series also has four hour-long messages as part of the Don't Waste Your Life Conference Edition, which allows you to conduct your own event.

With the deluge of communication around us—books, newspapers, blogs, journals, and magazines—all insisting that their view of the world is most compelling, which should we trust? This is no small question. In fact, our answer has eternal implications.

The ten-session Why We Believe the Bible Series and Study Guide are designed to help study groups and classes explore the claim that the Bible stands above all others as the book of books, pointing infallibly to the King of kings. Through the teaching of pastor John Piper and the five guided assignments per week, participants will study biblical texts and discuss probing questions to help them see why the Bible alone is worthy of our confidence.

They are the fundamental tenets—better known as the "five points"—of Calvinism, and they are abbreviated as TULIP: Total depravity, Unconditional election, Limited atonement, Irresistible grace, Perseverance of the saints.

John Piper walks study groups through each point in this series and its companion Study Guide, discussing the implications and the issues from a fully biblical perspective. Piper's 30-minute teachings cover topics that include the meaning of "total" in total depravity, doing missions when God is sovereign, Romans 9 and the two wills of God, and ten effects of believing the five points of Calvinism.

This sixteen-session, guided group study equips facilitators, teachers, group leaders, and pastors to help their members understand the all-important differences between Calvinism and Arminianism. It also calls them to hold fast to biblical truth regarding God's salvific work in his people's lives.

John Piper awakens your group to the highest, best, final, and decisive good of the gospel, without which no other gifts would be good.

Some people say forgiveness makes the gospel good news. Others suggest that being saved from hell or gaining freedom from a guilty conscience makes it good news. But the Bible tells us the gospel is good news not because of its many peripheral blessings, but because it brings us to God—and to utter delight in him as our all-sufficient and everlasting treasure.

This series and its companion Study Guide dynamically explore the ultimate good of the good news in a guided group study featuring the teaching of Pastor John Piper. Each of his six 30-minute sessions will enable you to guide others to embrace God as the gospel in every area of their lives.

Six 30-minute sessions with John Piper instruct groups in obtaining proper affections for God so that they will fight to find their delight in Christ.

There are plenty of people who insist that the command to love God with all our heart, soul, and mind doesn't really obligate us to enjoy God above all things. "Joy and delight are emotions," they say, "and this kind of love must simply be a decision of the will, not a feeling."

Yet as John Piper teaches in this series and its companion When I Don't Desire God Study Guide, emotions are commanded everywhere in Scripture. They're not just instructions to think a certain way but to feel a certain way. So loving God above all else is not merely about our actions but about our hearts.

Though we don't have complete control of our emotions, eternity hangs on the presence of proper affections for God. Therefore, the fight for joy is not optional. It is essential.

Designed to be used in a guided group study, each 30-minute teaching of Piper's will serve as a tool to help Sunday school teachers, small group leaders, retreat speakers, and parents to bolster their members in the all-important fight for joy.
