Strength for the Weary (Thomas)

SKU ‎ 9780752888446


Life is not easy. Its many trials often leave us wondering how we can press on in a fallen world. When we receive fresh wounds before old ones heal, we often are tempted to despair. We share this experience with the ancient people of God, and we can also share in the profound comfort God offered them. In the final chapters of Isaiah, the prophet presents a significant set of encouragements for the people of God as they journey through a world filled with trials and sorrow.


In Strength for the Weary, Dr. Derek W.H. Thomas explores the final chapters of Isaiah, laying out the remarkable promises that God makes to His people. In these pages, there is consolation in the struggles of this life and encouragement for the road ahead. The God of Comfort has promised to be with His people always.

  • Dr. Derek W.H. Thomas is senior minister of the First Presbyterian Church in Columbia, S.C., and Chancellor’s Professor of Systematic and Pastoral Theology at Reformed Theological Seminary. He is a Ligonier Ministries teaching fellow and author of many books, including How the Gospel Brings Us All the Way Home, Calvin’s Teaching on Job, Strength for the Weary, and, with Dr. Sinclair B. Ferguson, Ichthus: Jesus Christ, God’s Son, the Saviour.


  • Some Christians (and pastors) excel in afflicting the comforted while others comfort the afflicted. Few have the grace to do both. The prophet Isaiah was one of those who could, and reading these pages based on his great prophecies will convince you that Dr. Derek Thomas has learned to be another. Here is a spiritual treat, giving us both an exalted view of the majesty of God and a deep sense that Christ’s grace is sufficient for all our needs. Strength for the Weary is simply a feast of good things—truly nourishing spiritual fare, skillfully prepared and lovingly presented.”
