I could listen to my friend David Powlison for hours and not lose interest for even a second. The man is one of the wisest men I know and he seems to never repeat himself. His deployment of language is unique and when I am with him it seems I cannot take notes fast enough.
So in May, while David was in town teaching at our Pastors College, I sat down with him in the recording studio. First, we talked about six of the resources he’s produced (that interview is in last Thursday’s post). Then I asked David to elaborate on four quotes from his writings that have each impacted my life and teaching over the years. We’ll call it “five minutes with David Powlison.”
Over the next few days I’ll post these four brief but rich recordings. There is a wealth of wisdom in each of them.
In the first recording I asked David to elaborate on this excellent quote:
Don’t ever degenerate into giving advice unconnected to the good news of Jesus crucified, alive, present, at work, and returning.
—Seeing with New Eyes (P&R, 2003), p. 43.
