Suffering and the Sovereignty of God

   Posted by: jmueller

There are several audio messages that seem to coincide with many of the chapters of John Piper’s and Justin Taylor’s book ‘Suffering and the Sovereignty of God’.  The book does go further in depth with each of the topics, but these audio messages from the 2005 Desiring God Conference appear to provide a good overview of the topics.  It looks like there are two chapters and an appendix that do not have a corresponding audio message.

Chapter 1 – John Piper – ‘Ten Aspects of God’s Sovereignty Over Suffering and Satan’s Hand in It’

Chapter 2 – Mark Talbot – ‘All the Good that Is Ours in Christ: Seeing God’s Gracious Hand in the Hurts Others Do to Us’

Chapter 3 – John Piper – ‘The Suffering of Christ and the Sovereignty of God’

Chapter 4 – No Message

Chapter 5 – Stephen Saint – ‘Sovereignty, Suffering, and the Work of Missions’

Chapter 6 – Carl Ellis – ‘The Sovereignty of God and Ethnic-Based Suffering’

Chapter 7 – David Powlison – ‘Christ’s Grace and Your Sufferings’

Chapter 8 – No Message

Chapter 9 – Joni Eareckson Tada – ‘Suffering for the Sake Of…’

Appendix A – No Message

Appendix B – Justin Taylor – ‘Interview with John Piper’
