Overview

In his seventh book in the Swans Are Not Silent series, John Piper explores the lives of Charles Spurgeon, George Müller, and Hudson Taylor. All three men were known for extraordinary faith in God and untiring service to others. Each of them continues to motivate and inspire God’s people today. Rooted in their nineteenth-century British context, these three giants encouraged one another in their ministries—Spurgeon in the church, Müller in orphan care, and Taylor in world missions. Even through intense adversity, their lives displayed a shared confidence in the power of God and a common love for his glory and goodness.

For 33 years, Piper served as pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church. He has authored more than 50 books, and more than 30 years of his preaching and writing are available free of charge at desiringGod.org.

Piper attended Wheaton College where he majored in literature and minored in philosophy. He completed his Bachelor of Divinity at Fuller Theological Seminary, where he studied under Dr. Daniel Fuller.

In 1994, Piper founded Desiring God Ministries, which provides Piper’s sermons, articles, and information on titles he has authored. One of his bestsellers, Desiring God: Meditations of a Christian Hedonist, prompted the name of the ministry.
