Peer pressure is very hard to resist. So many are affected by the views and values of their social circle and largely conform to what others think, say and do, as well as to what they eat and wear. But this is not new. While the Bible does not speak of peer groups and the pressure they exert, it does point to the course of this world and warns Christian believers not to be conformed to its thought patterns or to the ignorance of God which they betray. But the Scriptures do more. They give us examples of those who have, by the grace of God, lived and died in faith, saying to us, Whose faith follow. Faith Cook’s abililty to write biographical studies according to this biblical pattern is now well known. Her earlier books Singing in the Fire, Grace in Winter, Samuel Rutherford and His Friends and the full-length biography William Grimshaw of Haworth have been widely appreciated. The studies in Singing in the Fire struck the note of perseverance under trial. Now Sound of Trumpets strikes the note of triumph.
