John Piper on Biographies of Christian Leaders

John Piper, 27 Servants of Sovereign Joy: Faithful, Flawed, and Fruitful (Wheaton: Crossway, 2022).

Crossway have made available a substantial volume (over 1,000 pages) by John Piper, which gathers together his shorter biographies of men (yes, they are all men!) who have, in different ways, left their mark on Christian history.

Here’s the blurb:

‘Throughout church history, the faithful ministries of Christian leaders – though full of struggle, sin, and weakness – have magnified the worth and majesty of God. Their lives and teachings are still profoundly relevant. Their voices live on in the stories we read and tell today.

‘In this book, John Piper celebrates the lives of 27 such leaders from church history, offering a close look at their perseverance amidst opposition, weakness, and suffering. Let the resilience of these faithful but flawed saints inspire you toward a life of Christ-exalting courage, passion, and joy.

Further information is available here, and a pdf of the book can be downloaded here.
