Product Description

Now reprinted with a new cover, Spectacular Sins: And Their Global Purpose in the Glory of Christ tackles the very difficult topic of sin and the problem of evil.

Respected author John Piper believes a time of great suffering is near for Christians in the West and he does not want the church to be blindsided. What are believers to do when surrounded by sin and evil beyond belief? Is it really possible to remain faithful and joyful? Can Christ really be glorified in such a time? Piper demonstrates that God's purposes are not thwarted by overwhelming evil; in fact, spectacular sin succeeds in carrying out God's purpose of glorifying Christ. Therefore, the church can face such evil and suffering with full hope and confidence in God's sovereignty.

Publisher's Description

Laying out what the Bible says about God’s sovereignty over the spectacular sins and terrible tragedies of human history, John Piper encourages readers to trust in God’s plan and purposes. Newly redesigned.

Author Bio

John Piper (DTheol, University of Munich) is the founder and teacher of desiringGod.org and the chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary. He served for 33 years as the senior pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and is the author of more than 50 books, including Desiring God, Don’t Waste Your Life, This Momentary Marriage, Bloodlines, and Does God Desire All to Be Saved?

Endorsements

When it comes to holocausts or other horrors, most of us assume God has his hands tied and his back to the wall. We figure the devil wreaks havoc when God's not looking; we rationalize the Lord's 'mistakes,' figuring he absentmindedly took his hands off the wheel when tragedies happen. But John Piper paints a different picture from the pages of Scripture that will strengthen your heart, bolster your faith, and deepen your understanding of the 'largeness' of God's sovereignty.
-Joni Eareckson Tada,
Founder and CEO, Joni and Friends International Disability Center

I had to read this book twice. The weighty truths about the sovereign wisdom and power of God unpacked in these pages created in me an overwhelming feeling of gratitude and ultimate safety. To be reminded of his might over everything is priceless, and I don't think I'll ever be able to preach the same again.
-Matt Chandler,
Pastor, The Village Church

Pastors, make sure your people read this book! I know of no one who has so clearly addressed the relationship of man's sin and God's sovereignty as John has done in Spectacular Sins.
-Randy Pope,
Pastor, Perimeter Church, Duluth, GA

Spectacular Sins and Their Global Purpose in the Glory of Christ. Wow! Spectacular and sin! I've never seen those words together before. And who but John Piper could so brilliantly weave them into the same lyric as the global, purposeful glory of Christ! This man never ceases to inspire me to be more awestruck with the supremacy of Jesus.
-Chris Tomlin,
Song-writer and Lead Worshiper
