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.
