I haven't seen much at all on PBS written by John Piper (pastor in Minneapolis) or G.K. Chesterton.  Is anybody keeping these that they might post them soon?

Hey Chris

G.K. Chesterton does seem to be hard to find in this site.   Ebay does have him though. As well as half.com.  Try abebooks.com, thriftbooks.com and amazon.

John Piper i do have 2 books by him.  The Passion Of Jesus and Dont waste your life.   If your interested i'll get them to you fora credit each. 

sermonaudio.com does have free mp3 downloads of audiobooks of all kinds of preachers and I did find John Piper in there:



Hope that helps..

I've never seen GK Chesterton posted on this site, but probably cuz most people will re-read his books.

I guess I do see a few Piper books.  In particular, I'm looking for "Desiring God", which is one that I don't see.

As for Chesterton, I think Jillian is right.  I couldn't read "Orthodoxy" without a pen to make notes, and I certainly can't give the book up. 

Confession:  if anyone posts "The Everlasting Man" and I get it, I don't think you'll see it swapped again!

Jessica--I'm also a huge fan of Piper's audio lectures and sermons.  I listen to them almost every week while I'm working out.  In case you didn't already know, he has his sermons podcasted from www.desiringgod.org.
