John Piper delivers powerful biblical reassurances to bolster readers' trust in the sovereignty of God and the supremacy of Christ when evil and tragedy come.

If God governs the sinful acts of men, then does the devastation caused by those terrorists, dictators, murderers, cheats, and abusers discredit Jesus' words: All authority in heaven and earth belongs to me? When heart-rending news comes of the latest accident, illness, or natural disaster, can we really believe that in Jesus, all things hold together?

Though God has not answered all of our questions about sin and suffering, there are things he wants us to know, things he declares in his Word - such as what's at stake in the spectacular sins of others and the horrible tragedies of this life; their global purpose, both historically and today; and what these events say to us personally. As John Piper works through these biblical truths, this book will bolster readers' trust in the utter sovereignty of God such that they'll be less timid in their witness and less afraid of whatever may come. It is also a joy-infused declaration that because everything occurs through Christ and for Christ and his glory, they are forever secure in him. Download and start listening now!

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela | 12/30/2013

    " LOVED this book. Not only did it make me think about God's sovereignty in all the spectacular sins of the Bible, but also His sovereignty over all the sins in my life and how He has purpose in the sins that I struggle with. Easy to read - short chapters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara Loyd | 12/29/2013

    " I read this while in the hospital. This is the first time I ever looked at Jesus on the cross as murder. Eye opening. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sam | 12/13/2013

    " Fantastic presentation of God's absolute sovereignty over the most spectacular sins of human history. John Piper deals with some of the biggest questions against Christianity, namely, the problem of the origin of evil. Loved this book. Highly recommend! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christopher Waugh | 11/12/2013

    " If you want a better understanding of the biblical doctrine of God's sovereignty in all things, including sin and suffering, this book serves a cornerstone text. Short, concise and full of biblical reference, this small book will help put your Christian walk into greater perspective. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 11/1/2013

    " A small gem. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsay Kennedy | 10/18/2013

    " Incredibly edifying. Definitely not a wimpy book creating wimpy worldviews "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Duane | 10/12/2013

    " God is sovereign over all the events of this life. There is great comfort in the thought. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 12/31/2012

    " Dynamite offering to my theology. The truth of sin and its grand purpose in the hands of a Holy God, all-wise and knowing, is a reassuring venture that has shaped the way I relate to my faith and the situations around me. This is truly life changing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Justin Brown | 9/28/2012

    " Good read if you like Piper's style, but if you don't it will sound like all his other books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joshua Nuckols | 4/28/2012

    " A powerful book. Piper tackles the tough question of suffering and the sovereignty of God. He came to the same conclusion as Joseph after being sold into slavery: Man meant it for evil -- God meant it for good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric Durso | 9/12/2011

    " This book is intense and answers some huge questions. At only 100 or so pages, it's a quick read. Take your time, though, there's much to soak in. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dana | 6/13/2011

    " Other than the fact that I don't particularly like Piper's style of writing, this was excellent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dave | 1/3/2011

    " This is a book that has opened my eyes to how the New Testament is so intertwined with the Old Testament. Dr. Piper has done a great job in showing how the Spectacular Sins in the bible only point to the Soveriegnty of God throughout all of eternity. This is a must read for all people in the Church. "
