Christian Biography

Posted by MDViews on December 13, 2008

I’ve been listening to John Piper sermons on desiringgod.org. I especially enjoy his biography series. He preaches a new biography once a year at the Desiring God pastor’s conference. Each sermon is about an hour and 20 minutes long and each is riveting.

His scriptural basis for biography Hebrews 13:7 which says, “Remember those who led you, who spoke the word of God to you; and considering the result of their conduct, imitate their faith.”

I now have a grasp of Augustine, Athenasius, Luther, Calvin, William Cowper, William Tyndale, Andrew Fuller, George Mueller, Adoniram Judson, John Newton, William Willberforce, John Paton, John Bunyan, Charles Spurgeon, John Owen, Martin Lloyd-Jones, Jonathan Edwards and Charles Simeon.

I would encourage any who would read this blog to click on desiringgod.org, the click on “See all sermons”, then on “biography”. Pick on out and listen (or read). You will be blessed.

    I love a good biography too. I will have to catch up on the ones I haven’t read. My favs so far are Cowper, Wilburforce and Newton. Thanks for the reminder to check these out.
