The indefatigable John Piper has authored another book. It won’t be published until April, 2009 but it is already available for download from the Desiring God website. The theme of the book is that “The meaning of marriage is the display of the covenant-keeping love between Christ and his people” (15). To demonstrate that this is an unusual book on marriage, each chapter begins with a quote from Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Letters and Papers from Prison. I’ve just finished reading the introduction and I will definitely be continuing on to finish this book. Please join me – at the very least you can lay claim to having read a book before it was even published!
