Brothers, We Must Not Mind a Little Suffering: Meditations on the Life of Charles Simeon
A preacher in England in the late 1700's and early 1800's, Charles Simeon endured suffering in his ministry. As John Piper illustrates in this short biography, Simeon faced a hostile community and congregation that often opposed him. But Simeon, a once haughty youth, "grew downward" in the humility of Christ and faithfully sought God in prayer. An inspiration to all Christians seeking to honor God in a hostile world, Simeon's nearly fifty years in ministry testifies to the sustaining power of God in the face of hostility and suffering.
