21 Servants of Sovereign Joy : Faithful, Flawed, and Fruitful by John Piper
Throughout history, the lives of spiritual giants–though full of struggle, sin, and weakness–magnify the glory and majesty of God. Their lives and teachings are full of messages that are still profoundly relevant. Their voices live on. And their stories should be told and read today.
In this book, John Piper explores the lives of twenty-one leaders from church history, offering a close look at their perseverance amidst opposition, weakness, and suffering. Let the endurance of these faithful but flawed saints inspire you toward a life of Christ-exalting courage, passion, and joy.
This book compiles all 7 volumes in his Swans Are Not Silent series, in which John Piper explores the lives of Christians who have inspired every generation of believers toward a greater passion for God. Focusing on 21 leaders from church history, this book offers a close look at the course of their individual lives and their impact on our own spirituality today.
