He lists out 12 influences: Reprint of Spurgeon’s sermons, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Banner of Truth, evangelism explosion, the inerrancy controversy, PCA, Packer, Sproul & MacArthur, John Piper, reformed rap, parachurch institutions, the decline of Christian nomialism. A summary of his lecture can be found here (the summary contains a link to the full lecture audio):
