The New Birth

My sermon notes in Wordle. I don't preach from a manuscript, just a detailed outline. This morning I preached on the New Birth/Regeneration from 1 Peter Chapter 1. For this week's "Relevant Read" I am recommending two books on the subject. One I've read and one (I never do this) I haven't yet read. The first is a classic: Regeneration by J.C. Ryle. The second is John Piper's newest, Finally Alive

Yes, I am recommending Piper's book without having yet read it. I have heard good things, and am confident I know where John is coming from. I was telling Steve McCoy that I doubt Piper says anything new on the subject, but he will probably say it better. So I'll be reading it ASAP. If you've read it I'd be interested in hearing your take.
