Out of Egypt

Some of you know that, at each year's pastor's conference, John Piper gives a biographical message/challenge from the life some great saint of the past. Of all the audio messages I have ever listened to, this series is some of the best stuff.

This week, I have listened to Piper's message on Athanasius of Alexandria (Egypt, not Virginia!). This is, perhaps, the most challenging and thought-provoking of them all. Listen or read it when you get a chance. Point 6 has some very keen insight that will be helpful in thinking through the Evan Almighty debate in which I have been engaged of late.
