Pastor John Piper said that Francis Chan’s message at the 2010 National Conference was probably one of the most listened to talks in Desiring God Conference history.
That’s remarkable. In some ways this surprises me. But in other ways, it doesn’t at all.
There will no doubt be some who feel this is a bad thing, as Francis Chan doesn’t adequately measure up to their standards of Reformed purity. The popularity, they will suppose, stems from the ever increasing downgrading of Evangelicalism.
But I, for one, very much like him.
