The 2006 Desiring God National Conference produced some outstanding and accessible applied Christian theology, especially in the sphere of a postmodern view of Christ. The widely respected reformed theologian John Piper here assembles an all-star lineup of pastors, teachers, and writers who are also popular public speakers on this topic. Scott Grunden takes on the difficult task of giving voice to six very different speakers but opts for simply reading each lecture in his own voice. This choice does a disservice to the content, as the nuanced delivery style of each speaker is lost. Furthermore, Grunden's dry run-through of the transcribed conversations at the end of the book begs for vocal differentiation. The subject matter does not suffer though, and this work should inform the listener about much of cutting-edge theology. S.M.M. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2009]
