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.

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.

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.
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.
