Joy In Dark Places (Parr)

SKU 9781601789266


he world is full of dark places that present obstacles to our joy. While people may instinctually turn to films, games, or social connections to brighten their day, Christians know they have a greater source of comfort and joy. In Joy in Dark Places, Thomas Parr reminds us that the Bible speaks of glorious realities that the darkest days cannot destroy. Readers will see how moral evil, calamity, and even bad theology steal our happiness. More importantly, they will see how the light of the gospel dispels disquiet and brings profound joy instead.

  • Thomas Parr (ThM, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary) is a Reformed Baptist pastor serving in Anacortes, Washington. He is a contributing editor to the Lexham Context Commentary and author of the volume on the Gospel of Mark in that series.




    "Some people tell us to rejoice always because they think that our choice to rejoice will make us healthy and wealthy. Other people talk about joy as if it were heavenly escapism performed by ignoring pain and stoically pressing on. But Thomas Parr shows us that true joy--biblical, emotional, doxological joy--can be found in the hard realities of a sin-cursed world because Christ died a sin-cursed death, rose again, and is working all things for the glory of God. This is an important book that can transform for good our entire concept of joy and, by implication, how we respond to the hard times of life." -- Joel R. Beeke, president, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan
