In Honor of Martin Luther King day, John Piper is giving away his new book, bloodlines, as a free PDF. I just purchased it this december, and it's in my reading que. I'm looking forward to it (as i usually do with all Piper books). Snag it for as a free download. Below is Pipers post on the book.
"Bloodlines is one of the most autobiographical books I have written. It tells my story from racism to the path of redemption. I preached on the theme of Bloodlines yesterday to mark Martin Luther King weekend. The title of the message was “From Bloodlines to Bloodline.” I argued that God is calling his people to move from the alienation of many bloodlines to the reconciliation of the single bloodline that began on the cross of Christ.
I urged my people to read the book. Not because I care about selling books, but because I want them to know my story, to be aware to the global relevance of the issue, and to feel the hope that comes from the power of the gospel.
In making the book available in a PDF version online for free we are trying to remove every obstacle that might keep you from that experience."
Chapter six is the one I tried to unpack in this week's message. It is close to the center of the Gospel’s relevance for perseverance in the cause of Christ-exalting ethnic diversity.
