Lessons from a Hospital Bed


Physical sickness affects more than just our bodies. It takes a toll on our emotional and spiritual health as well. In this honest book, John Piper shares ten lessons he learned while in the hospital.

Written to help those in the hospital focus their attention on God, his grace, and his plan — when such focus can be especially hard — this short book blends together personal narrative with biblical reflections to help readers rely on the God who stands ready to comfort and support his people.

Whether it’s cultivating a sense of gratitude, resisting the temptation to watch television 24/7, or looking for ways to serve those around them, this book encourages those who are sick to fight for faith in the midst of their illness.
