John Piper

Some of you know that I love John Piper (I’m currently reading his book When I Don’t Desire God with the MH staff). He is a great Reformed pastor and teacher out of Bethlehem Baptist Church/Desiring God Ministries in Minneapolis, where I grew up. In fact, the first conversation Jason and I ever had was over a message we both listened to from last October’s Desiring God Conference. Jason probably didn’t realize it at the time, but that scored him major points.

One thing about Piper is that he always has a new book out. The guy writes like mad. Books like Desiring God and Future Grace have been instrumental in my understanding of the gospel and what it means to practically live it out.

I say all this because over at the Desiring God blog, all John Piper books are being offered for $5 this coming Wednesday and Thursday (July 27th and 28th).

If you’ve never experienced Piper’s teaching, I encourage you to pick up a copy of one of his books. They are all good. Desiring God also has a ton of other audio, video, and print resources available on their website, too.

Enjoy!

  1. A Piper fan has put together a list of the “essential” Piper library list – if you’re thinking about what books to read by John Piper (since there are SO many it’s hard to choose), this is a great resource.
