If you have tracked with this blog for any time, you know that in the month of January, I posted a series of blogs that I called The Books! These were the top 31 books that have been shaped me as a person and pastor. The number one book on that list was Desiring God by John Piper. Well, I guess I just missed this, but the 25th anniversary edition of that book has just been released.
What I love about Piper is that he is so open about his feelings and thoughts. In this short video they just released, Piper reads from a journal entry back in 1986, the day after he received the first copy of Desiring God. This video humbles me as I know how I responded when I received the first copy of my book. But it also humbles me as I can see a great value to journaling after watching this.
