What does it mean to be a strong woman? The world and all the media will answer one way, but the gospel and the Bible paint a more beautiful and satisfying picture. In twenty minutes, John Piper builds a vision for womanhood, touching on faith, physical appearance, and submission.
Look at the Book is John Piper’s latest effort to help teach people to read the Bible for themselves. It’s an ongoing series of 8–12 minute videos in which the camera is on the text, not the teacher.
As part of this initiative, Desiring God is putting on regional events focused on certain passages of Scripture. Below, you can find all the video from our Look at the Book weekend on 1 Peter 2–3. The clip above is Part 12: The Beauty and Behavior of a Godly Woman.
