“This is a fragment of the legacy of truth imparted to me by my father. The word imparted was no mere transmission of information. It involved a whole life of proclamation and demonstration” (p. 1).
About the Book
On Father's Day in 2005 John Piper shared eleven "precious truths" his father had imparted to him — truths, he explained, that were no mere transmission of information, but rather involved a whole life that demonstrated what was taught.
Two years later when the late Bill Piper when home to be with the Lord, these eleven truths were adapted into a booklet given away at his memorial service.
As a way to honor William Solomon Hottle Piper, and inspire fathers to be worthy of this kind of tribute, this booklet is now available in electronic form (PDF).
