What is God´s perspective regarding women in ministry? Is gender a deciding factor in determining leadership roles in the body of Christ? Should women be silent in the churches? The answer to these questions along with many more regarding women in ministry are adequately addressed in this book. Without question, the subject of women in ministry continues to draw mixed conclusions across a broad spectrum of people.

The enigma of Alexander the Great has remained with us for 2,300 years. In spite of the best efforts of historians, Alexander is no less a mystery to us now than he probably was during his own lifetime. There was no one like him before or since. In the pages of Harold Lamb´s intriguing Alexander of Macedon, we find some of the answers to the great riddle of his character. Lamb, author of the magnificent Hannibal: One Man Against Rome, has once more pushed the envelope of historical writing to give us a glimpse of what Alexander might really have been like. Using as his principle source material the Anabasis of Alexander by Arrian, Lamb has cobbled together not only a straightforward retelling of the exciting adventures of the Macedonian, but he has also deftly reconstructed those hidden events of which history is silent. The result is a remarkable portrait of a young man thrust into the leadership of a semi-barbarous Greek people. This is the story of that whirlwind of physical and mental energy which was to explode across the surface of the known world. In the end, it was the civilization of the East which captured Alexander. His untimely death a mere dozen years after his accession to power robbed mankind of one of the most compelling visionaries who ever lived. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Charlton Griffin.

When Augustine handed over the leadership of his church in AD 426, his successor was so overwhelmed by a sense of inadequacy that he declared, ´´The swan is silent”, fearing the spiritual giant’s voice would be lost in time. But for 1,600 years Augustine has not been silent - and neither have the men who faithfully trumpeted the cause of Christ after him. Their lives have inspired every generation of believers and should compel us to a greater passion for God. John Bunyan suffered long-term imprisonment, even when a simple promise to cease preaching would have freed him, and was moved to rely on God even more. William Cowper, despite month after month of debilitating depression, wrote poems that reflected the sustaining character of God and led him to worship more deeply. David Brainerd so desired to honor God that through the loneliness of wilderness ministry and the agony of tuberculosis, he pressed on, transforming world missions forever. In this noteworthy Swans Are Not Silent book, John Piper invites you into the lives of Bunyan, Cowper, and Brainerd to discover how God takes the privilege of faith and strengthens it with trials so that we experience a greater hunger for him. The perseverance of these godly servants exemplifies the essential fruit that affliction can produce in your own life. Their enduring faith will fortify you in your suffering, reminding you that ´´behind a frowning providence, God hides a smiling face.” And their stories and witness will inspire in you a similar passion for the supremacy of God in your life. 1.

Athanasius. Owen. Machen. When Augustine handed over the leadership of his church in AD 426, his successor was so overwhelmed by a sense of inadequacy that he declared, ´´The swan is silent´´, fearing the spiritual giant´s voice would be lost in time. But for 1,600 years Augustine has not been silent - and neither have the men who faithfully trumpeted the cause of Christ after him. Their lives have inspired every generation of believers and should compel us to a greater passion for God. In his fourth book in the Swans Are Not Silent series, John Piper explores the lives of Athanasius, John Owen, and J. Gresham Machen - a bishop, a pastor, and the founder of a seminary. Each of these men stood for the truth of the gospel in the face of intense opposition - all out of a deep love for Jesus and a desire for people to know him in his fullness. They took no joy in controversy for argument´s sake, and they were willing to suffer for the sake of guarding the sanctity of the gospel. Threats of harm, years of exile, the death of loved ones, opposition from friends and authorities, sickness and pain - none of these setbacks could keep these three from maintaining their efforts to further the gospel or quench their zeal for Jesus himself. In each of their lives, personal holiness was emphasized publicly and privately despite suffering. They were true soldiers for the sake of the cross, and each man offers life lessons for Christians today. We pray that their perseverance, courage, and resolve will arouse such Christ-honoring passions in you. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bob Souer.
