Details

Many people seek to better their lives by leaving, changing, swapping, or modifying their commitments. But God’s Word holds up a beautiful value that, while difficult, leads to deep satisfaction and great reward: endurance.

This thoughtful book both elevates the virtue of godly endurance and bears witness to its power in the Christian life. This volume’s contributors include John MacArthur, Jerry Bridges, Randy Alcorn, and Helen Roseveare. Each individual represents a different kind of endurance—from MacArthur’s longtime, faithful shepherding of a church to Alcorn’s radical obedience in the culture wars, and from Bridges’ unswerving patience through suffering to Roseveare’s courageous constancy on the war-torn mission field. This inspiring volume awakens and solidifies Christ-exalting endurance in people who are weary in their faith journey or who simply long to remain firm to the end.
