Summary

Turn your world on its head. 

For more than 30 years, John Piper pastored in the rough-and-tumble realities of downtown Minneapolis, preaching his people through the ups and down of life one Sunday at a time. When it came to capturing a generation of joy in one final sermon series, he turned to 10 trademark truths to leave ringing in his peoples’ ears. 

These 10 are world-shaking truths - each astonishing in its own way. First, they turned Piper’s own world upside down, then his church’s, and they will continue to turn the whole world upside down as the gospel of Christ advances in distance and depth. These surprising doctrines, as Piper writes, are “wildly untamable, explosively uncontainable, and electrically future-creating”. 

Join a veteran author, pastor, and Christian leader as he captures the 10 astonishing, compassionate, life-giving, joy-awakening, hope-sustaining truths that have held everything together for him. This audiobook is a revised edition of the earlier title Doctrine Matters.

An interesting book but poorly read

John Piper is a very interesting preacher and recordings of his sermons are available and are fascinating to listen to.
Unfortunately Facebook is poorly red in my opinion. It is read far too fast and without sufficient time to fully appreciate what is being put forward.

Worth listening to again

I enjoyed this book but in some way they all ran into each other. Maybe it was me but I would have liked a clearer reminder of the focus of each chapter. If these truths are so radical they need to be also really clear. I have listened to it twice and need to try again.
