"My Mama Told Me It Was So"

Why does John Piper believe the Bible is true? When recently asked this question he responded that it is first because his mother had taught him it was so.

Grateful for his mother's influence, Pastor John gave a message last month at the Bethlehem Women's Conference on the indispensable priority of the Bible. He explained, "Nothing is more crucial for being the woman God made you to be and knowing how to make your life count than being saturated with the Bible."
