Each month, WaterBrook Multnomah gives readers a sneak peek into an upcoming title. See below for our most recent peek.
Freedom from Sin Through the Promises of God
This study guide companion to the DVD version of Future Grace—the foundational book by John Piper on the expansive reach of God’s grace—will help individuals and groups understand that victory over sin comes not from a herculean effort to avoid worldly pleasures, but through fixing one’s focus on the reality that God is far more desirable than even life itself. Delighting in the bounty of God’s promises frees us from sinful patterns, to the glory of Christ!
The DVD and this guide create an ideal package for adult and youth Sunday school classes, small groups, retreats, classrooms, families, as well as for individual study.
