Hmmm. Maybe he's been reading some Piper. See http://www.desiringgod.org/ResourceLibrary/Articles/ByDate/2006/1797_We_Want_You_to_Be_a_Christian_Hedonist/John Piper - "We want you to be a Christian Hedonist"

Hi there,

This is my sermon - someone just told me that it was on here today so I came and had a look - never seen this site before.

After the comments about "Kiwi Preaching - it's a drought out there" I'm kind of hoping that I'm not being lumped in that category. If I am, it would be really interesting to hear why you think what I'm saying here explains that. (Am I being paranoid here?)

Regarding Piper, this sermon (and indeed my Christian walk) owes an awful lot to him. On the website where we put these sermons we put transcripts as well, which list out all the references I've used. Have a look at them if you like.

Cheers,

Greg
