John Piper explores the lives, and especially the sufferings, of three of God's servants to exemplify the essential fruit that affliction can produce in any Christian's life.


John Bunyan suffered long-term imprisonment, even when a simple promise to cease preaching would have freed him, and he was moved to rely on God even more . . . Despite month after month of debilitating depression, William Cowper's poetry reflected the sustaining character of God and led him to worship more deeply . . . David Brainerd so desired to honor God that through the loneliness of wilderness ministry and the agony of tuberculosis, he pressed on, transforming world missions forever.

In this noteworthy book, now in paperback, John Piper invites readers into the lives of these three men to find the strength that not only endures hardship but bears God-honoring fruit. It will be an immense encouragement to those who are suffering, reminding them that "behind a frowning providence, God] hides a smiling face." And they will be inspired with the same hunger as their predecessors for the supremacy of God in their lives.
