Thank you, John Piper

On January 27, 1987 Desiring God was published.  This book, one of the most important of the 20th century, has profoundly changed the landscape of Christian thought in America.  It has also profoundly changed the landscape of my life.  Next to the Bible, Desiring God has probably had a more profound influence on my life than any other book.  Thank you, John Piper. 

We have just passed the 25th anniversary of the original publication of the book.  If you haven't read it, please do.  If you have read it, consider reading it again.  I just pulled mine off the shelf.
