John Piper explains further why he asked Rick Warren to the Desiring God National Conference

Also of note: Al Mohler, RC Sproul, Thabiti Anyabwile and Francis Chan will also be speaking (along with John Piper, of course). This year’s theme is Think: The Life of the Mind and the Love of God. It sounds like it will be a great conference.

Rick Warren and John Piper: What’s going on with the 2010 Desiring God National Conference?

Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life and pastor at Saddleback Church, is not a guy who resonates in Reformed circles. So, the word that’s been leaking out the last week or so that John Piper had invited him to be the keynote speaker at this year’s Desiring God National Conference has caused quite a buzz. Ben Terry has the audio (also below) of Piper talking to a group at Mt. Sinai Missionary Baptist Church about what he likes (and what puzzles and confounds him) about Warren.

More will probably come from this as Piper will host a Q&A live tonight at the Desiring God site.
