Ridiculous Amount of Resources Available from Desiring God Ministries

15 Oct

As I was contemplating buying a book that was listed on Justin Holcomb’s new post on the Resurgence website titled, Fifty Reasons Why Jesus Had to Die, I remembered that John Piper put free (that’s right free) complete pdf files of all of his books on his website, desiringgod.org.  And lo and behold, when I checked, there it was – the entire book for free online.

No kidding – the resource library on the website is massive.  It includes (but not limited to) the following:

  • Every single sermon since the 1980s available either via audio or video.  They’re also all transcribed so each sermon is available to print as well.
  • An “Ask Pastor John” section where he answers questions that people from all over the world have asked him.
  • Free Complete Books as pdf files.  Quite possibly the most ridiculous thing (in a good way).  I mean, who makes all their books available online?  Someone who’s committed to seeing the glory of God magnified more than themselves, that’s who.  I would highly recommend the book Desiring God and Don’t Waste Your Life (not to say the other books aren’t just as good).
  • Articles.  Topics range from God, sin, salvation, spiritual growth, life issues and more.
  • Conference messages.  These have especially been helpful to me in developing my understanding and subsequent love and affections for Christ.  Might I suggest the National Conferences (e.g. 2006’s The Supremacy of Christ in a Postmodern World and 2005’s Suffering and the Sovereignty of God).

And there’s more!  They’re available for anybody.  Seekers, agnostics, atheists, seasoned Christians, new believers, sufferers, pastors, teachers, men, women, youth, children.  Praise God for John Piper and the burden He gave to him to magnify God’s glorious grace in such an amazing way.

Again, here’s the website.
