About the Author

Brian H. Cosby is pastor of Wayside Presbyterian Church (PCA) on Signal Mountain, Tennessee and adjunct professor of church history at Metro Atlanta Seminary. He is the author of several books and regularly contributes to various journals and magazines.


"It is my great joy and privilege to be able to commend this book and its author to a wider public. I have known Brian for many years as a student and as a pastor, and it is largely thanks to him that I have come to know John Flavel too. My prayer is that this introduction to his work will be used to bring many to a similar knowledge and understanding of one of the great men of our church and that those called to pastor today will learn from his example and be encouraged by one who suffered the loss of all things so that Christ might reign in splendor in the hearts and minds of the people committed to his care. If you are a child of God, may He do a work in you as great as the one He did in John Flavel, and may you go on your way rejoicing, knowing that in reading these pages, you have been with Jesus." -- Gerald Bray, Research Professor of Divinity at Beeson Divinity School, Samford University (from the foreword)

"Let's be clear--suffering is not something we want for ourselves or for those we love. Yet it is a reality of living in a compromised creation. But what does this mean for our view of God and our relationship with Him? In this brief book, Brian Cosby attempts to review the theological logic that informs John Flavel's view of God's providence amid these difficulties. Some of what Flavel argues may be hard for us to swallow, but here is someone creatively trying to uphold both God's sovereignty and love amid the painful realities that arise in our lives. This book, filled with provocative quotes from Flavel and ably arranged and explicated by Cosby, helps us understand Flavel's pastoral advice for how Christians might view these seasons of suffering." -- Kelly M. Kapic, Associate Professor of Theological Studies at Covenant College and Coeditor of The Devoted Life: An Invitation to Puritan Classics
