Good Listening

I remember seeing John Piper in a Q/A time at Covenant Seminary once. Someone asked him. How can I become a great preacher? His response: Two things, 1. Study hard in seminary. Learn everything you can learn about the Bible, history, etc. 2. Listen to great preachers. Follow-up question. Who are the contemporary great preachers? Piper said, Three come to mind. 1. Skip Ryan, 2. Bryan Chapell, 3. Tim Keller.

I think this is good advice. To that end, I've amassed quite a collection of sermons, and people commonly ask me about good preaching resources. There are tons on the internet for free. I plan to keep this post updated as I find more resources.

I've mixed the sermons with other stuff, too.
