Blessed Endurance - Sightings (Martin Marty)
Paul talks in Romans 5 about suffering producing endurance, and endurance producing character, and ultimately this leads to hope. My Bible Study group just finished working through the Book of Daniel, which also has something to say about endurance. Now, I encounter Martin Marty's Sightings column, which highlights a book with the title Blessed Endurance. Marty doesn't mention either Romans 5 or Daniel, but he does note that the title of the book is a riff off of the Fanny Crosby song "Blessed Assurance." The question, it would seem, is that the author, a former Marty PhD student, John Wimmer. From what Marty shares, this might be a book worth considering. So, check it out.
