SNS Roots of Endurance, The: Invincible Perseverance in the Lives of John Newton, Charles Simeon and William Wilberforce
John Newton, Charles Simeon and William Wilberforce suffered lifelong opposition and endured it for the causes of gospel truth, missionary zeal and political justice. They found, in solid doctrine and humble joy, the tough roots for habitual tenderness in response to their adversaries - without doctrinal or moral flinching. They are examples of remarkable grace.
In his third book in The Swans Are Not Silent series, John Piper looks at the lives of these three great men and focuses on how they not only endured great opposition, but they did so with joy and without bitterness. Their lives exemplify how to set a pace and finish the race before us, encouraging every heart that it is possible to jump the hurdles in our paths.
