Patience: How We Wait Upon The World by David Bailey Harned


"This is among the two or three best books that I have read in the last ten years." That's what I said five years ago about this elegant and very practical essay about the indispensable virtue of patience. And I think that, still. For most of the last two thousand years, patience, endurance, faith, hope, perseverance and providence were tightly connected, and considered vital for Christian living. But now, patience is a forgotten virtue! Neglected by pastors, theologians, and the culture generally, Harned shows how patience will make us more fully human than we can be without it, and not weak, but strong and steadfast, less easily troubled, less prone to getting knocked off course.  And remember, patience is (see 1 Corinthians 13) one of the first qualities of love!
