TULIP DVD: Let John Piper Teach Your Small Group
TULIP: The Pursuit of God's Glory in Salvation (DVD)
Monergism Review: We spent a good portion of the evening last night watching this new training DVD from John Piper on TULIP and were not dissapointed. This is definitely a mature John Piper and far excels his earlier teaching on the subject which many of you may have heard on MP3. We highly recommend this study, especially if you wish to watch, study and discuss this with a small group. There is a study guide available that goes with the DVD for this purpose.
The aim of the DVD and study guide is to explore biblical teaching on the sovereignty of God in salvation. If you know John Piper, he is not into systems, but lets the text of Scripture drive his interpretation. During the course of the study you get to hear the great struggle Piper went through when changing from being an staunch Arminian to a Calvinist. We highly recommend this study to all who would love to persuade their skeptical friends of the precious truths of God's effectual and indelible grace to His people whom He deeeply loves.
Description: Sixteen, 30-minute DVD sessions with John Piper instruct groups in the five points of Calvinism so that they will uphold Godâ€™s Word regarding Godâ€™s saving work.
They are the fundamental tenetsâ€”better known as the â€œfive pointsâ€â€”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 DVD and its companion Study Guide, discussing the implications and the issues from a fully biblical perspective. Piperâ€™s 30-minute DVD teachings cover topics that include the meaning of â€œtotalâ€ 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 Godâ€™s salvific work in his peopleâ€™s lives.
