This was one of the most interesting conversations I’ve been a part of—an interview of John Piper and John MacArthur together (September 28, 2007). On the surface there are many similarities between these two preachers. But on another level you couldn’t find two men more different.
You can listen to it, or watch it below. Here are the questions I asked them:
When did you become aware of each others’ ministries?
How have your fathers influenced your ministries? Did they want you to be pastors?
If you could tell your younger selves one thing, knowing what you now know, what would it be?
How do you handle praise? How about criticism?
How do you counsel younger ministers and missionaries when their ministries seem fruitless?
When you get discouraged where do you go for encouragement?
What do you want to be remembered for when your life is over?
