Tested by fire
Full Product Description
There is a certain irony to the fruit of affliction; John Bunyan's confinement taught him the pilgrim path of Christian freedom; William Cowper's mental illness yielded sweet music of the mind for troubled souls; David Brainerd's smouldering misery of isolation and disease exploded in global mission beyond all imagination.
Irony and disproportion are all God's way. We think we know how to do something big, and God makes it little. We think that all we have is weak and small, and God makes it big. Barren Sarah gives birth to the child of promise. Gideon's three hundred men defeat a hundred thousand Midianites. A slingshot in the hand of a shepherd boy brings the giant down. A virgin bears the Son of God. A boy's five loaves feeds thousands. A breach of justice, grovelling political expediency, and criminal torture on a gruesome cross become the salvation of the world.

"This is one of the best books published this year. It is readable, challenging and should enlighten any reader ... Should be read by any young or new Christian for two reasons. One, it is good biography and two, if it emblazes upon any mind the link between suffering and grace, it will achieve much." Presbyterian Herald
"Here is an inspiring book which provides a rich antidote to the superficiality of our age." Derek Tidball, Baptist Times
