Well, it’s that time again.
John Piper, pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church and founder of Desiring God, has come out with another new book. Piper is one of my favorite authors, and he has contributed much to my understanding of the gospel and Theology. I have read many of his books, and I am especially looking forward to reading this one.
Piper tells us a little about his latest book in this Documentary Trailer as seen on The Gospel Coalition:
Here’s an excerpt:
I was excited when I learned that John Piper was writing a book on race and the gospel of the cross. When John gave me the privilege of reading the manuscript, I devoured it and found that despite my high expectations I was not disappointed. It was helpful to me personally, helpful to me theologically (in understanding the relevance of the gospel to racial conflict), and it was especially encouraging to me to think that many in the evangelical world would read it.
You can (and should!) pre-order Piper’s new book, Bloodlines: Race, Cross, and the Christian from Amazon.
