Piper talking to Chandler

Here is a four part interview that John Piper did with Matt Chandler. Well worth a listen/watch.

  • Part 1 – Chandler tells his story up to about 20 years old.
  • Part 2 – More on Chandler’s story, through becoming a pastor.
  • Part 3 – Chandler’s thoughts on being a pastor, a Calvinist, and a Complementarian.
  • Part 4 – Chandler and Piper finish up with some advice for pastors.
