Perhaps no one else has ever faced as much hardship, opposition, or relentless suffering as the apostle Paul. And yet, through it all, Paul stood firm in Christ and remained faithful—to the very end.
The power of Paul’s example has captivated veteran pastor John MacArthur for years, and here he outlines nine unwavering convictions that contributed to this remarkable perseverance. In an age when pastoral failure and burnout are increasingly common, this book is a call to endurance in ministry, encouraging pastors to stand strong in their role and not lose heart, regardless of what God sends their way.
It seems only right that a book bearing this title should come from the pen of one whose life and ministry exemplify such faithfulness. Here is a helpful, challenging, resounding cry to the rest of us to keep on!

What are we to do in ministry when we encounter setbacks? John MacArthur presents nine reasons that the apostle Paul did not lose heart. This concise treatise is marked by gospel clarity and filled with timely observations. Accurate and honest, direct and encouraging, clear and plain, MacArthur has produced a portrait in words. As Paul reflects Christ, so should the faithful minister. Unintentionally, MacArthur here has written his own autobiography.

In this very helpful book based on 2 Corinthians 4, John MacArthur helps us to see from the ministry of the apostle Paul that in the tempests of ministerial life, there is nothing more crucial than an anchor embedded in solid rock. To remain true in the work of ministry we must have Spirit-inspired and unshakable biblical convictions. The apostle Paul braved the worst of storms in his years of fruitful ministry. The convictions listed in this book often buoyed his soul back on top of life’s raging waters. May they do the same for us!
