By now many of you have probably heard the theme of this fall's Desiring God National Conference: "Above All Earthly Powers: The Supremacy of Christ in a Postmodern World."

I suspect that Piper has taken some significant criticism for this inclusion because of some of the unfortunate things Driscoll has said and written.
