From Desiring God – An Evening with John Piper and Tim Keller
Moderated by Anthony Bradley – Sponsored by Crossway and hosted by Redeemer Presbyterian Church in NYC

Wednesday night, March 28, John Piper and Tim Keller teamed up in New York City for a conversation, moderated by Anthony Bradley, about the gospel and race, based on John Piper’s book ‘Bloodlines‘. See link below video for free download of this book:

from desiringGod.org , John Piper :

Bloodlines is one of the most autobiographical books I have written. It tells my story from racism to the path of redemption. I preached on the theme of Bloodlines yesterday to mark Martin Luther King weekend. The title of the message was “From Bloodlines to Bloodline.” I argued that God is calling his people to move from the alienation of many bloodlines to the reconciliation of the single bloodline that began on the cross of Christ.

I urged my people to read the book. Not because I care about selling books, but because I want them to know my story, to be aware to the global relevance of the issue, and to feel the hope that comes from the power of the gospel.

In making the book available in a PDF version online for free we are trying to remove every obstacle that might keep you from that experience.

John Piper’s fear of public speaking

It is interesting to note that John Piper had a huge fear of speaking in public, to the point where he once settled for a „C” in one class because he told his professor that he just can’t do the oral book report in front of his class. He even went so far as to pick courses where he knew public speaking would not be required.  Watch this short (12 minute) interview below to see how God changed all that.

This interview took place January 1, 2012 at the Campus Outreach National Conference 2011, in Chattanooga, TN with 4,000 college students in attendance. Piper answers 2 questions- How he got over his fear of public speaking  and why he wrote the book „Bloodlines”.
