LORD: The Doctrine of God – Part 1

Approximately two decades ago I had the opportunity to hear John Piper, one of the most profound pastors, theologians, thinkers and authors of our generation speak at a series of lectures on preaching hosted by Beeson Divinity School. One of Piper’s lectures was titled “How Not To Blaspheme God.”  Pretty interesting title for a group of ministers.   Early on inContinue reading “LORD: The Doctrine of God – Part 1”
