meet david platt


if you’ve never heard of david platt, you need to. he is the pastor of the church at brook hills in birmingham, alabama.

check out the sermon he delivered back in june to the southern baptist convention pastors’ conference. it has been called “the most powerful sermon in the history of the southern baptist convention pastors’ conference.” it will be one of the best 1/2 hours you spend this week. turn off the tv tonight (if you haven’t killed yours altogether already) and spend 35 minutes watching the following video,w hich is broken into four parts on youtube. (watch the whole thing, but if you just have time for a quick snippet for now, i would recommend starting at 13:35.)

also, check out the recent christianity today article in which he is interviewed and really expounds on how it all boils down to deeply knowing the scripture. (and don’t miss the amazing things that are happening at his church when he talks about how he started “secret church“). finally, there is also an older article in christianity today about him from 2006 as well.
