Publishers Description When Faith Flickers, Stoke the Fire No one sins out of duty. We sin because it offers some promise of happiness. That promise enslaves us-until we believe that God is more desirable than life itself (Psalm 63:3). Only the power of God's superior promises in the gospel can emancipate our hearts from servitude to the shallow promises and fleeting pleasures of sin. In ten thirty-minute sessions, pastor John Piper shows how to sever the clinging roots of sin that ensnare us, including anxiety, pride, shame, impatience, covetousness, bitterness, despondency, and lust. Delighting in the bounty of God's glorious gospel promises will free us for a less sin-encumbered life, to the glory of Christ. Rooted in solid biblical reflection, this book aims to help guide you through the battles to the joys of victory by the power of the gospel and its superior pleasure.

Reviews - What do customers think about Battling Unbelief DVD?
Battling Boredom Apr 16, 2008
I found it very difficult to remain focused on the topic of this study. The manner of presentation (red pen on overhead transparencies)and extreme detail in textual analysis left much to be desired. I would not recommend this study primarily due to the imbalance between textual study and practical application. I do not question the Biblical interpretations nor the integrity of author John Piper; I just was disappointed with the overall effectiveness of the study. Sad to say, as important as the subject itself is, the approach taken in this study simply did not hold my attention.
excellent unpacking of book Future Grace Sep 12, 2007
I highly recommend this video series of John Piper's 10 30-minute talks, where he "unpacks" his book, Future Grace. When I bought it, I assumed that the talks would correspond with the 10 areas of application to specific sins mentioned in Future Grace and in Battling Unbelief (the book). These sessions do not line up that way, but he establishes a Biblical background first for "faith in future grace", then applies the principles to four areas of sin struggle. John Piper's message is powerful, life-changing, and most of all, Biblical. I highly recommend this dvd series.
