One of my favorite parts about putting out albums is exposing people to the resources that have helped to shape my thinking about the content of the songs. One way to do this is by putting snippets from particularly helpful sermons in the songs themselves. A good number of people have asked me about the original sources of the sermon snippets heard on Attributes. Here's a list of the snippets, along with links to the original sermons.
D.A. Carson on Perfection of Beauty
This is from a sermon called "God" that D.A. Carson preached at the 2010 Next Conference. You can find that sermon here. Scroll down to the 2010 Conference.
John Piper on All-Consuming Fire
This is from a sermon called "The Greatest Thing in The World- An Overview of Romans 1-7" that John Piper preached as a part of his series in Romans. It's one of my all-time favorite Piper sermons. You can find it here
Sinclair Ferguson on Self-Sufficiency
This is from a sermon called "The Lord our God, The Lord is One: The Simplicity of God" that Sinclair Ferguson preached at the 2004 Ligonier National Conference on the Attributes of God. It can be found here.
Thanks again for all the feedback that y'all have given me about the album.
grace and peace,
