Details

Throughout history, God’s strategy for reaching unreached people groups with the gospel has often included the suffering of his front-line heralds—the missionaries who made countless sacrifices to advance the kingdom of God.

In Filling Up the Afflictions of Christ, John Piper focuses on the flesh-and-blood reality of pain in the lives of William Tyndale, Adoniram Judson, and John Paton. Paying dearly to translate the Word of God, mobilize missionaries around the world, and lead the hostile to Christ, their stories illustrate how God builds his kingdom through the suffering of his servants.

He still serves as chancellor of Bethlehem College and Seminary. Logos has collected his sermons in the John Piper Sermon Archive (1980–2014).
