Father’s Day is this weekend, and John Piper and the team at Desiring God would like to help you get ready and make the most of it.
This new ebook from John Piper, A Tribute to My Father, brings together in one place his most significant writings that honor the indelible influence of his father, Bill Piper (1919–2007). Included here are the eleven “precious truths” John shared for Father’s Day 2005, as well as his journal entry from the night his father died, the funeral message from just days later, and the extended biographical address tracking his life and ministry as an evangelist and father.
For Father’s Day 2013
John writes in the new introduction written specially for the ebook,
My father was the happiest man I ever knew. One of the reasons for this was his singing faith. To feel the significance of this, you need to understand that he was a fundamentalist. That’s not a bad word in my vocabulary. And he’s the reason. Fundamentals are worth dying for and fighting for. But that fight has killed the Song in the hearts of many people. But not in Bill Piper.
Whether your own father has let you down monumentally or been a major means of God’s direct blessing in your life, we think you’ll be encouraged to see evidence of God’s work through one fallen, fallible father to profoundly affect a son for good. John says,
O how I love my father, and his great Savior — and his Song. Surely this indomitable Song in our home was the birthplace of my life’s theme: God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him. May God make this legacy a fitting tribute to my father, and a great honor to his song-inspiring King.
