John Piper poignantly shares what God wants us to know about his sovereignty and Christ's supremacy when we encounter sin or tragedy.
JOHN PIPER is pastor for preaching and vision at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis. His many books include God Is the Gospel, Seeing and Savoring Jesus Christ, and Don't Waste Your Life.
This is a small book that deals with large issues and does it well. Piper tackles the origin of Satans sin and Gods sovereignty over Satan, Gods relation to evil, and the proper chronology of Gods saving grace and Adams sin. Individual chapters draw from the lives of Joseph, David, Judas Iscariot, as well as the account of the building of the tower of Babel. Always, the emphasis is brought back to the central truth that sin and evil do not nullify the purposes of God, and that being grounded in the truth of his sovereignty has the deeply practical effect of strengthening us for whatever trials, sorrows, and persecution we face. Piper closes the book with a prayer which reads, in part: Grant to our minds and hearts new and deeper capacities to see and savor the glories of Jesus Christ. With every new glimpse of his glory in your word, let there awaken new affections in our hearts. This book will truly be a means to those ends. Pam Glass, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
Though God has not answered all of our questions about sin and suffering, His word explains what's at stake in the "spectacular" sins of others and the horrible tragedies of this life; their global purpose, both historically and today; and what these events say to us personally.
In Spectacular Sins, John Piper reveals that evil does not triumph over God's purpose in this world, even though we do not yet "see everything in subjection to him." Piper's passionate and compassionate examination of the biblical evidence will bolster readers confidence in the sovereignty of God, enabling them to walk secure in Christ and in the power and purpose of God in the midst of challenging circumstances.
