Help Me Interview John Piper

John PiperJohn Piper does not do a lot of interviews, so it’s rather a thrill for me to be able to do just that. Since I have this opportunity, I thought it might be fun to open it up to the readers of this site (as I did recently with R.C. Sproul–that interview will be ready to go shortly). Here’s your opportunity to ask John Piper a question.

Obviously there are millions of things we could ask him, so before I solicit your questions, I want to put a boundary in place: Let’s keep the questions focused on the subject of sanctification. This year’s Desiring God National Conference is titled “Act the Miracle: God’s Work and Ours in the Mystery of Sanctification.” Let’s anticipate that conference by confining ourselves to that subject. There should be lots we can learn!

With that stipulation in place, go ahead and leave a comment with your question about sanctification. I’ll choose some of the best ones and send them through to pastor John.

    Let’s Hear It For the Second Parents

    While today we tend to associate step-parents with divorce, in previous centuries they were almost exclusively associated with death and with either widow- or widowerhood. In an era in which lifespans were shorter and, therefore, a greater number of parents died while their children were still young, there was a distinct and honored role for…
