John Piper has made a habit of delivering a biographical sketch of one important person in church history every year at his pastor’s conferences. They are highlights of each years conference and are not to be missed. In fact, these sketches are published in book form in ‘The Swan’s are Not Silent’ series, ‘Contending for our All’, ‘The Legacy of Sovereign Joy’, ‘The Hidden Smile of God’, and ‘The Roots of Endurance.’
Piper tackles such giants as Augustine, John Owen, John Calvin, Jonathan Edwards, John Bunyan, Charles Simeon, Athanasias, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, J. Greshem Machen, Martin Luther, John G. Paton, David Brainerd, George Mueller, William Cowper, Adoniram Judson, Charles Spurgeon and William Tyndale.
