I have eagerly anticipated the release of the messages from the 2006 Desiring God National Conference, â€œAbove All Earthly Powers: The Supremacy of Christ in the Postmodern World.â€ The conference was held just this past weekend in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
John Piper, my favorite preacher on planet earth, was one of the keynote speakers, and the audio and the transcript of his message is now available for download. Dr. Piperâ€™s text was John 17:13, and the sermon is titled â€œThe Supremacy of Christ and Joy in a Postmodern Worldâ€ (transcript, mp3) He argues that true joy in God must be founded on true knowledge of God. To the degree that the importance of truth is decreased, joy is decreased.
Other conference speakers include David Wells, Mark Driscoll, D. A. Carson, Tim Keller, and Voddie Baucham. You can download their messages here.
