Special Episode: Explain Your New Poem “Grace Forfeited”

by Tony Reinke and John Piper

In this special edition, John Piper explains the meaning and motive of his poem, “Grace Forfeited.”

Grace Forfeited

Adam, Tamerlan, and the Lady


by John Piper

This poem is a new start of an old tradition in American journalism: the news poem. Hardly a vile murder or a military victory went by without colonial poets bemoaning or celebrating the occasion in verse, with the work then published on a single page “broadside” and sold for a penny. Happily, my favorite pastor/theologian, John Piper, is also a poet, and below are his thoughts on justice in regard to Connecticut’s school shooting and Boston’s Marathon bombing. —Marvin Olasky
