In Velvet Steel, John Piper shares a series of poems written for his wife, Noël, during the first 42 years of their relationship, starting from the day of their engagement. In it he provides readers with a taste of one man’s tender affections for his wife—poems that he hopes will fan into flame reader’s affections for their own spouses and ultimately for the maker of marriage.
