Why I Love Randy Alcorn

Because he writes great small books about topics that people don't really like to talk about.

Because he has a "Quote of the Week" box on his website.

Because I've heard him use the word "hedonism" (referring to "Christian Hedonism") when talking about money.

Because he gives away all the royalties to all the books he writes.

Because he has a whole section on his website dedicated to Missions.

Because there are a lot of free audio/video downloads on his website.

Because he loves John Piper as much as I do.

Because the name of his ministry is awesome: Eternal Perspective Ministires.
