And speaking of really big – John Piper Gets Gold

May 17, 2007

Thanks Mark. Can’t wait to see you, and see those pics – my beloved and persistent Baptist friend! Adrian Warnock has just posted a comment and wants to see them too. By the way, was it Augustine who called his baptistry "the Red Sea"? At any rate, I think Tenth Presbyterian in Philly has some architectural features that allude to a church in Ravenna.

But anyway, our dear T4G friend John Piper’s Don’t Waste Your Life (Crossway Books, 2003) recently received a Gold Book Award from the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA). Congratulations John. This means among other things that more than a half million copies of this book have been sold. Praise God for this wonderful influence!

Crossway describes Don’t Waste Your Life, as "John Piper’s plea to a generation to make their lives count for eternity." And this Gold Book Award is an indication that John’s message is resonating with many. As you all know, you can learn more about John and his ministry over at
