For the Fame of God's Name

John Piper was honoured this past weekend at the Desiring God National Conference with a volume of essays, published by Crossway, in his honour. This sort of thing could easily have degenerated into a God-dishonouring event in which thousands of piperazzi idolized the man, John Piper. But as Sam Storms and Justin Taylor presented this book to John Piper, they kept the emphasis on the glory of God, the supremacy of Christ and the recognition of what God has done through Piper. I was moved and warmed in my soul to watch this 15 minute video of the presentation. I’ve never seen John Piper so nearly speechless.
