What People are saying about this

From the Publisher

"When it comes to holocausts or other horrors, most of us assume God has his hands tied and his back to the wall. We figure the devil wreaks havoc when God's not looking; we rationalize the Lord's 'mistakes,' figuring he absentmindedly took his hands off the wheel when tragedies happen. But John Piper paints a different picture from the pages of Scripture that will strengthen your heart, bolster your faith, and deepen your understanding of the 'largeness' of God's sovereignty."
Joni Eareckson Tada, Founder and CEO, Joni and Friends International Disability Center

"I had to read this book twice. The weighty truths about the sovereign wisdom and power of God unpacked in these pages created in me an overwhelming feeling of gratitude and ultimate safety. To be reminded of his might over everything is priceless, and I don't think I'll ever be able to preach the same again."
Matt Chandler, Lead Pastor, The Village Church, Dallas, Texas; President, Acts 29 Church Planting Network; author, The Mingling of Souls

"Pastors, make sure your people read this book! I know of no one who has so clearly addressed the relationship of man's sin and God's sovereignty as John has done in Spectacular Sins."
Randy Pope, Pastor, Perimeter Church, Duluth, GA

"Spectacular Sins and Their Global Purpose in the Glory of Christ. Wow! Spectacular and sin! I've never seen those words together before. And who but John Piper could so brilliantly weave them into the same lyric as the global, purposeful glory of Christ! This man never ceases to inspire me to be more awestruck with the supremacy of Jesus."
Chris Tomlin, Recording Artist, Song-writer and Lead Worshiper

I am blessed to be able to belong to John Piper's church, and I was present for the original sermons that this booked is based on, and I am so very glad that Pastor John decided to write this book. Sin and evil are terribly hard things to understand, hard to reconcile with our sometimes faulty image of God. This book does a fabulous job of explaining God's sovereignty in ALL things, even the most spectacular sin of all, the Crucifixion.

"God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him"--we at Bethlehem hear this phrase frequently. "Spectacular Sins" helps us to see how that is possible in our fallen world.
