I don’t know Matt Hall. But my buddy Dave referred me to his article about the Desiring God conference at John Piper‘s church last fall. After reading Matt’s article, I went to the conference website and downloaded John Piper’s first session to my mp3 player and listened to it like 5 times. It was so good. The message totally kicked my butt! It was something I really needed to hear, and I wish somebody had prescribed it for me earlier.
I am doubly indebted to both Dave and Matt Hall for exposing me to this material, as well as for providing the inspiration I needed to get my own MovableType web app up and running!
