John Piper is an internationally known pastor and author. He serves as pastor for preaching at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He is a graduate of Wheaton College, Fuller Theological Seminary, and the University of Munich, Germany (Doctor of Theology). Winner of three Gold Medallion book awards, he has written over forty books, including Future Grace, A Godward Life, The Dangerous Duty of Delight, and The Pleasures of God. John and his wife, Noel, have five children and an increasing number of grandchildren.
