A hilarious live-action family comedy.
A fairy tale character who is about to flunk out of fairy tale school, Jack must perform a heroic deed by Monday or fail miserably, just like his father before him. Anxious to make good, Jack sells his C.O.W. (Computer of Wonder) for a handful of magic beans and a mysterious book that records his adventures as he’s having them. Accompanied by his sidekick Grayson — a goose who ate a bean and underwent an amazing transformation — Jack climbs the magic beanstalk to recover the fabled Harp of Destiny from the evil Giant who lives in the sky. Helping Jack on his perilous quest is the spunky Jillian, a fearless young girl whom Jack meets on his journey — and who just may have a hidden agenda.

The Pursuit of Pleasure Is Not Optional. It Is Essential

In this DVD version of Desiring God-the classic description of Christian hedonism-John Piper explains how the supreme calling of life is to “glorify God by enjoying Him forever.”  
    Drawing upon Scripture after Scripture, Piper shows why pursuing maximum joy is essential to glorifying God and, in what may be surprising to some, how God is ready to pursue with all His might our pleasure in Him! The implications of this truth are discussed in regard to conversion, worship, love, Scripture, prayer, money, marriage, missions, and suffering.
 
   In ten sessions Piper teaches on: 

   . One Great Mission and Motivation
   . A Summary of Christian Hedonism
   . The Foundation of Christian Hedonism
   . The Essence of Christian Hedonism
   . The Grand Obligation
   . How Then Shall We Fight for Joy?

Recorded in HD with subtitles in English, these video sessions are ideal for use in adult and youth Sunday-school classes, small groups, retreats, classrooms, and families. To get the most from this resource, use it along with the Desiring God DVD Study Guide.
