John Piper on Good Eloquence

"God's design, both in the cross and in election is that 'no human being might boast in the presence of God' (I Corinthians 1:29). That is the first criterion of good eloquence: It does not come from pride or feed boasting. It does not come from an ego in search of exaltation through clever speech. ... So the second criterion of good eloquence is that it exalts Christ - especially the crucified Christ."
- John Piper, Seeing Beauty and Saying Beautifully, pages 25 and 26
