Behind the Blog: Who Is This Jon Bloom?

We could ask Jon Bloom about all sorts of stuff. Whether it's the founding of Desiring God, her nearly 20-year history, or what John Piper was really like back in the day, there's plenty to query Bloom on. But that'll have to wait for another day.

For now, the topic that has our attention is Jon Bloom, the writer. 

As president of Desiring God, Bloom regularly writes for the blog, among his other typical tasks. Over the last couple years, Jon may be our most regular substantive contributor with his weekly Friday morning post. Jon also has a book of devotionals due out next Spring, called Not by Sight: A Fresh Look at Old Stories of Walking by Faith.

We thought it'd be helpful to take about eight minutes and go Behind the Blog with Jon Bloom to ask about his writing. Come listen in.
