Pastor John Piper Does Not Earn A Dime From His Book Sales!!!


Reader, now this is how a minister should function - the question has come up many times regarding the finances of John Piper from book sales. Well, this is an awesome response. He and his wife basically re-channel ALL of the royalties from book sales back into ministry work. In addition,  every one of the books that John writes is available free of charge on his website as e-books!

He understands the concept of "Freely you have received, freely give,"
watch the video. "John Piper’s fifty-plus books receive a steady royalty stream from ongoing sales. Piper assigns the copyrights of his books to a charitable foundation so that he doesn’t receive the money personally. In this short video, Piper explains where the royalties go and how they are managed to guard against the love of money (Hebrews 13:5) and channel them back into ongoing ministry. It is, after all, more blessed to give than receive (Acts 20:35)."

    Ms. Ann I've always been drawn to Piper because he lets the text have its full weight and finds his liberty there. We (I) exhaust myself finding loopholes in texts so that I don't have to feel how demanding they actually are. What freedom to interpret scripture so explicitly. Love his teaching.

  3. Another reason why John Piper is my greatest living human influence as a pastor. He's not trying to get RICH like so many false shepherds.

    1. Beside that he is white, What makes this so powerful:
      *No mention of amounts
      *No mention of recipients
      *No hint of bragging
      *No hint of remorse
      *No sense of compulsion
      *No sense of superiority
      This is a fine biblical model for inspiring believers to be generous & avoiding the temptations associated with how to handle earthly riches.

  6. Ann, I don't always agree with John Piper but his integrity is second to none.
