How I Wrote My Review of “Providence”

Earlier this Spring, Christianity Today invited me to write a review of John Piper’s latest book, Providence (Crossway, 2020) and this week they published the review here:

“John Piper Goes Further Up and Further Into the Doctrine of God’s Providence,” Christianity Today, May 11, 2021.

The time I had to write the review overlapped with my teaching a masters level online course, “Survey of Historical

“Better, my brethren, [to] wear out and die within three years than live forty in slothfulness.”
Jason G. Duesing, Adoniram Judson

“Neither the tears of his mother and sister nor the hopes and dreams of his father could deter him from his call to go to the nations for Jesus’ sake.”
Jason G. Duesing, Adoniram Judson

“The poor Burmans are entirely destitute of those consolations and joys which constitute our happiness; and why should we be unwilling to part with a few fleeting, inconsiderable comforts, for the sake of making them sharers with us in joys exalted as heaven, durable as eternity! We cannot expect to do much, in such a rough, uncultivated field; yet, if we may be instrumental in removing some of the rubbish, and preparing the way for others, it will be a sufficient reward. I have been accustomed to view this field of labor, with dread and terror; but I now feel perfectly willing to make it my home the rest of my life.”
Jason G. Duesing, Adoniram Judson

“Judson once remarked, “It is possible my life will be spared; if so, with what [zeal] shall I pursue my work! If not—His will be done. The door will be open for others who will do the work better.”10”
Jason G. Duesing, Adoniram Judson

“One of the most pathetic pages in the history of Christian missions is that which describes the scene when Judson was finally released and returned to the mission house seeking Ann, who again had failed to visit him for some weeks. As he ambled down the street as fast as his maimed ankles would permit, the tormenting question kept repeating itself, “Is Ann still alive?” Upon reaching the house, the first object to attract his attention was a fat, half-naked Burman woman squatting in the ashes beside a pan of coals and holding on her knees an emaciated baby, so begrimed with dirt that it did not occur to him that it could be his own. Across the foot of the bed, as though she had fallen there, lay a human object that, at the first glance, was no more recognizable than his child. The face was of a ghastly paleness and the body shrunken to the last degree of emaciation. The glossy black curls had all been shorn from the finely-shaped head. There lay the faithful and devoted wife who had followed him so unwearily from prison to prison, ever alleviating his distresses and consoling him in his trials. Presently Ann felt warm tears falling upon her face and, rousing from her daze, saw Adoniram at her side.12”
