The DVDs for Desiring God have 10 sessions that you can go through as a group study, Sunday school class, or just by yourself. John Piper authored the book, and has now expounded on the experience with the DVD sessions. I personally have not read the book before viewing the DVDs. The sessions were able to stand alone without having read the book as a precursor. There is a study guide that you can purchase separately, which I did not have. I believe it would enhance this study when doing it in a group setting.
Overall the experience was favorable. I would be interested to do this study again in a group setting with the study guide. I think having multiple perspectives would only enhance my learning and growing experience.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
