Crossway Publishes For the Fame of God’s Name: Essays in Honor of John Piper

I join the chorus of gratitude to God for the ministry of John Piper.

I could tell many anecdotes about how Denny Burk and I used to quote snippets of his sermons to each other, about how powerfully the Lord used a Piper sermon when I didn’t know how to argue against open theism, about how the first paragraph of Let the Nations Be Glad! made me feel like I’d been to a theological chiropractor and been put into joint for the first time in my life, about how grateful I am for the marital insight that love seeks its joy in the beloved, and so much more.

I’m thrilled to see this book appear:

Justin Taylor has the video of the presentation of the book to Piper that took place this past Saturday.

Thanks and praise be to God, and again I express my gratitude and honor also to whom honor is due, Piper himself.

May the Lord continue to use John Piper for the good of his people and the glory of his name.

  1. I feel the same way about Piper — life-altering sentences and paragraphs. I can recall what I was eating, where I was sitting, what the weather was like and where the sentence was on the page as God forever altered life and theology through Piper’s pen.

    May the Lord raise up a thousand more of his kind!

    And, Congrats, brother, on being asked to pen a chapter! I was hoping you’d be included.

  2. Yes, those were good times. The Lord used Piper to bring about a Copernican Revolution in my life. Praise God for that!

    And congratulations on the chapter! Soli deo gloria!

  3. Just received my a copy this past weekend and am already enjoying the articles.

    Concerning Piper: If John the Baptist was Elijah, then it may be safe to say that John the Piper is Paul.

    Just saying.
