Bloodlines Documentary with John Piper

September 30, 2011

I recently picked up this book on hard copy as well as on Kindle. Below is an exclusive video documentary featuring John Piper as he walks through his personal story of growing up in the racist South. His personal story boldly champions the transforming power of the gospel and the beauty of racial diversity and harmony in Christ.

Very moving. Check it.

Bloodlines by John Piper

September 15, 2011

Last night, I picked up on Kindle John Piper’s latest book, Bloodlines: Race, Cross, and the Christian (foreword by Tim Keller).  I have always enjoyed reading works by Piper, but I’m especially interested in this one because of the topic and how it relates to my life and work.

There are two parts to the book: part one focuses on  “Our World: The Need for the Gospel” and part two transitions to “God’s Word: The Power of the Gospel.” Needless to say, I’m eager to dive in.

A very cool addition to this new release is an 18-minute documentary of Piper and his past growing up in Greenville, South Carolina.  Check out this excerpt from the documentary.
