Tested By Fire

John Piper

Inter-Varsity Press


In this book Piper gives brief biographies of John Bunyan, William Cowper and David Brainerd and the fruit of the afflictions which they suffered. This book with three brief biographies is about more than gaining knowledge about the lives of other christians or reading an intriguing story. It is easily read and presents real challenges and lessons to be applied in our own lives. Suitable for all christians as it is simple to read and reinforces the crucial lesson of the link between trials and grace.

“Let go of what holds you back from full and radical service” John Piper

Available online from Amazon and Inter-Varsity Press.

P.S. Interestingly if you click on the Amazon link and scroll down, under “Product Description” it quotes from an RP minister in a certain modern, colourful publication.

P.P.S. Check out this clip from TV series ER. “I want a real chaplain who believes in a real God and a real hell!” Watch the clip on Between Two Worlds.
