2008 Desiring God National Conference Registration Is Open

Check out the video trailer for upcoming DG conference. This year's theme is "The Power of Words and the Wonder of God."

Piper describes the conference as "the most unusual conferences we have ever conceived. My expectations are very high that its effect will be mind-sharpening, heart-humbling, mouth-seasoning, backbone-strengthening, and Christ-acclaiming." Read his invitation.

The speaking line-up includes:

Sinclair Ferguson on James 3:1-12

Paul Tripp on Matthew 12:34

Daniel Taylor, speaking on a theme from his book, Tell Me a Story: The Life-Shaping Power of Our Stories

Mark Driscoll will tackle the knotty issue of tough and tender words, words in controversy, words in confrontation, words like Jesus and Paul used when they called people vipers and said, “If anyone has no love for the Lord, let him be accursed” (1 Cor. 16:22).

Bob Kauflin, who recently authored Worship Matters: Leading Others to Encounter the Greatness of God, on "what happens to words when we put them with music and sing them."

John Piper on the theme “Is There Christian Eloquence? Clear Words and the Wonder of the Cross.”

Registration is now open. The Desiring God National Conference continues to be one of the most affordable and high-quality events on the Christian calendar. This conference strikes me as both unique and well worth our attention.
