from In Defense of the Gospel:
John Piper to Feature Rick Warren at 2010 Desiring God
Desiring God 2010 National Conference to Feature Rick Warren
This is not good.
Voice of the Sheep has blogged that John Piper is taking an 8 month leave
from the official announcement:
The difference between this leave and the sabbatical I took four years ago is that I wrote a book on that sabbatical (What Jesus Demands from the World). In 30 years, I have never let go of the passion for public productivity. In this leave, I intend to let go of all of it. No book-writing. No sermon preparation or preaching. No blogging. No Twitter. No articles. No reports. No papers. And no speaking engagements. There is one stateside exception—the weekend devoted to the Desiring God National Conference combined with the inaugural convocation of Bethlehem College and Seminary in October. Noël thought I should keep three international commitments. Our reasoning is that if she could go along, and if we plan it right, these could be very special times of refreshment together.
No preaching the gospel?
How do you just leave that behind? I don't get it.
