Recently I asked a pastor friend of mine who he'd like to spend a day with (someone alive or dead but not Jesus Christ) to pick his or her brain. His initial response was, "that's a good question!" but he had to think awhile before he came up with an answer.
My answer, surprisingly enough, was Dr. D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones. I've always been challenged by his writing and lately I've been reading a biography by Christopher Catherwood which has given me fresh insight into a godly man.
How about you? Who would you pick? Let me know by leaving a comment. THANKS!
My answer probably wouldn't be that different.ReplyDelete
I'm a big 'fan' of the doctor. I've read several of his books (which are really his sermons transcribed) as well as Murray's huge two volume biography.
I think I need to grab another one of his books from my shelf sometime soon and sit down for some great reading.
Thanks for your comment. We must think alike.
Be encouraged today, dear brother!
Definately Keith Green or Dietrich Bonhoeffer!!!ReplyDelete
Dear David...I would really love to spend a day with Jake Hess!!ReplyDelete
We used to phone him once in a while and it was so nice to talk to him!...Love Terry
PS Where you been? I thought, seeing as we haven't heard from you at the Pals that you were still recuperating from your trip...So I came down here to see!
I'd hang out with Patricia St. John. I love her love for God that shines out of her books.
