Many people seek to better their lives by leaving, changing, swapping, or modifying their commitments. But Godís Word holds up a beautiful value that, while difficult, leads to deep satisfaction and great reward: endurance.
Such long, steady, hold-the-course perseverance is especially needed within our vacillating generation. This thoughtful series, taken from the Desiring God 2007 National Conference, thus not only elevates the virtue of godly endurance but bears witness to its power in the Christian life through the exhortations of John Piper, John MacArthur, Jerry Bridges, Randy Alcorn and Helen Roseveare. Each contributor represents a different kind of endurance: from MacArthurís long-time, faithful shepherding of a church to Alcornís radical obedience in the culture wars, from Bridgesí unswerving patience through suffering to Roseveareís courageous constancy on the war-torn mission field.
Stand will awaken and solidify rugged, Christ-exalting endurance in people who are weary in their faith journey or who simply long to remain firm to the end. And for everyone who dreams of a Christian culture-shift from brief trial runs to lifelong commitments, this latest offering is a watershed that serves to seal that vision in peoples minds and hearts
