    Glad you like John Piper. He’s a favorite of mine. Do you ever listen to Tullian Tchividjian? (grandson of Bily Graham and pastor of Coral Ridge)? He preaches grace – my current favorite doctrine

      I don’t listen to Tullian regularly by I have listened to him a few times before and I like what he has to say! And of course, grace is my favourite too. 😉

      I do love John Piper, ‘Desiring God’ had a big impact on me when I first read it. It blew my mind and liberated my thinking about God in a lot of ways. In hindsight, you do have to be a little bit careful when reading that book because of certain important emphases which I feel he leaves out. He recognises that himself in a video I watched where he confessed that he was too theocentric in his earlier ministry (the time he wrote Desiring God) and not enough Christocentric. I would add that he is also sometimes not Trinitarian enough. For example, in CH1 of Desiring God, Piper sets out God to be a bit of a vain, arrogant God who only does what will make him look good. But that’s not true at all! God is not a narcissist; his glory is in his self-giving, his other-centredness, which is found first and foremost in the Trinity.

      So to keep the equation balanced, a dose of Mike Reeves is indispensable. Reeves is exceptional when it comes to Trinitarian theology. Listening to both of them is a great combo! Also, Tim Keller’s preaching is gold.
      You got any other favourites?

    I definitely would like to know bloggers outside of WordPress on the other networks
