Reflections on the Life of William Cowper

John Piper has made it a habit to deliver a biographical teaching on some of the great men of the Christian faith at his pastor’s conferences. In 1992 he delivered his research on William Cowper. Since I have posted two hymns by Cowper I thought I would provide a short yet thorough biography on this saint/song writer who suffered with insanity throughout his life.

Insanity and Spiritual Songs in the Soul of a Saint by John Piper
Listen to audio.

  1. I listened to this jewel on Monday. In-cred-i-ble.

  2. Yesir’. I listened to this at work the other day. I do believe God worked mightily in me through Cowper’s life. It was good for me to see that even God’s elect suffer through depression. God definitely used this teaching to speak multitudes about himself to me.

  1. No trackbacks yet.
