The Swans Are Not Silent: Book Three
Bitterness and frustration tempt everyone who endures opposition or slander or rejection. It's hard not to give in. And if adversity continues for a long time (even decades) is there hope for perseverance? Will we find the grace to finish the race?
In this third volume of The Swans Are Not Silent series, John Piper examines the lives of John Newton, Charles Simeon, and William Wilberforce. These three extraordinary men are examples of deep and joyful maturity in the face of life-long opposition. They were sinners like us. But they refused to yield to bitterness. With the centrality of the cross as the root of their endurance, they grew downward in humility and upward in adoration for Christ. Their God-centered, Christ-exalting, cross-focused perseverance inspire us to press on through hardship and finish the race set before us.
