Excellent so far! Have really enjoyed William Wilberforce, John Bunyan, and George Herbert. Piper is a fine biographer.

[Book 1: The Legacy of Sovereign Joy]
The sum of all our goods, and our perfect good, is God. We must not fall short of this, nor seek anything beyond it; the first is dangerous, the other impossible.
-- St. Augustine, "Morals of the Catholic Church"
[Book 2: The Hidden Smile of God]

Judge not the Lod by feeble sense,
But trust him for his grace,
Behind a frowning providene
He hides a smiling face.
-- William Cowper
"God Moves in a Mysterious Way"
[Book 3: The Roots of Endurance]
A book by Richard Sibbes, one the the choicest of the Puritan writters, was read by Richard Baxter, who was greatly blessed by it. Baxter then wrote his "Call to the Uncoverted" which deeply influenced Philip Doddridge, who in turn wrote "The Rise adn Progress of Religion in the Soul. This brought the youn William Wilberforce, subsequen English statesman and foe of slavery, to serious thought of eternity. Wilberforce wrote his "Practical Book of Christianity" which fired the soul of Leigh Richmond. Richmond, in turn wrote "The Dairyman's Daughter", a book that brought thousands to the Lord, helping Thomas Chalmers the creat preacer, among others. -- Ernest Resinger, "Every Christian a Publisher"
[Book 4: Contending for Our All]
Our upbringing and the whole atmosphere of the world we live in make it certain that our main temptation will be that of yielding to winds of doctrine, not that of ignoring them. We are not at all likely to be hidebound: we are very likely indeed to be the slaves of fashion. If one has to choose between reading the new books and reading the old, one must choose the old: not because they are necessarily better but because they contain precisely those truths of which our own age is neglectful. The standard of permanent Christianity must be kept clear in our minds and it is against that standard that we must test all contemporary thought. In fact, we must at all costs not move with the times. We serve One who said, "Heaven and Earth shall move with the times, but my words shall not move with the times" (Matt. 24:35; Mark 13:31; Luke 21:33). C. S. Lewis "Christian Apologetics"
[Book 5: Filling Up the Afflictions of Christ]
A letter from John Calvin to five young Frenchmen about to be martyred in 1553 for carrying the gospel into France:

We who are here shall do our duty in praying that [God] would glofiry Himself more and more by your constancy, and that He may, by the comfort of His Spirit, sweeten and endear all that is bitter to the flesh, and so absorb your spirits in Himself, that in contemplating that heavenly crown, you may be ready without regret to leave all that belongs to this world.

Now, at this present hour, necessity itself exhorts you more than ever to turn your whole mind heavenward. As yet, we know not what will be the event. But, since it appears as though God would use your blood to seal His truth, there is nothing better for you than to prepare yourselves for that end, beseeching Him so to subdue you to His good pleasure, that nothing may hinder you from following whithersoever He shall call. . . . Since it pleases Him to employ you to the death in maintaining His quarrel, He will strengthen your hands in the fight and will not suffer a single drop of our blood to be shed in vain.

Your humble brother, John Calvin
