Review:

Piper clearly enjoys delivering such studies and his enthusiasm is
infectious -- David McKay; Covenanter Witness; July 2003

This is one of the best books published this year. It is readable,
challenging and should enlighten any reader.
-- Presbyterian Herald; September 2001

a unique and fascinating book on the subject of suffering -- Timothy Walsh; Churchman; March 2002

the whole book makes one clear case: suffering can be incredibly
fruitful. -- Peter Comont; Evangelicals Now; January 2002

From the Back Cover:

Great privilege. Great pain. This is God's way: to take the
privilege of faith and strengthen it with real trials so that we worship
and witness with a greater passion for God.

There is a certain irony to the fruit of affliction.
John Bunyan's confinement taught him the pilgrim path of Christian
freedom.

William Cowper's mental illness yielded sweet music of the mind for
troubled souls.

David Brainerd's smouldering misery of isolation and disease exploded in
global mission beyond all imagination.
Irony and disproportion are all God's way. We think we know how to do
something big, and God makes it little. We think that all we have is weak
and small, and God makes it big. Barren Sarah gives birth to the child of
promise. Gideon's three hundred men defeat a hundred thousand Midianites.
A slingshot in the hand of a shepherd boy brings the giant down. A virgin
bears the Son of God. A boy's five loaves feeds thousands. A breach of
justice, grovelling political expediency, and criminal torture on a
gruesome cross become the salvation of the world.

John Piper

Reviews:

This is one of the best books published this year. It is readable,
challenging and should enlighten any reader.
...Should be read by any young or new Christian for two reasons. One, it is
good biography and two, if it emblazes upon any mind the link between
suffering and grace, it will achieve much.

Presbyterian Herald:

Here is an inspiring book which provides a rich antidote to the
superficiality of our age.

Derek Tidball; Baptist Times
