Overview

As we ponder Job’s misery, do we see the threads of God’s mercy in it? We will all face suffering at some point in our lives. It is inescapable. But what makes calamity endurable is not that God shares our shock, but that through every sickness, disaster, or tragedy, his sovereign goodness sustains us.

The Misery of Job and the Goodness of God, an interpretive poem by John Piper, reminds believers of the unshakable fact that God governs all things for his good purposes—if we allow our eyes to see life in the context of God’s larger plan. Piper calls those who are struggling to know that the Lord is not only sovereign, but gracious. Also featuring the photography of Ric Ergenbright, this book combines Piper’s poetic insight with stunning imagery, drawing the reader’s attention to God’s grandeur and mercy.

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. Piper received his Doctorate in Theology from the University of Munich and taught biblical studies for six years at Bethel College.

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.
