Great Book Dec 20, 2008
This book really made me think. It is a great book to think about how you are living your life for Christ.
Top Read Dec 12, 2008
John Piper delivers again: insightful, biblical, timely. An excellent read for every Christian, but especially those of us caught up in our culture's unnecessary hustle and bustle. I'll continue to recommend him as one of the top contemporary Christian writers, analogous to CS Lewis and Watchman Nee.
Don't Waste Your Life: Disciple Like Jesus Nov 29, 2008
John Piper does an excellent job of calling believers to "die to self," so that we may build the Kingdom of God, rather than to living for things that will pass away. He is a master of challenging us to put our lives in perspective. Are things going well? Live for Christ. Are things going wrong? Live for Christ.
This is a book for sincere Christians who are willing to honestly examine their motives for living, and then to prayerfully decide to follow Jesus more closely.
A One-of-a-Kind, Landmark, Clarion Call Nov 22, 2008
I just love this book! After I read it, I ordered a case of 24 copies for the youth department at First Baptist Church...my home for a quarter of a century in downtown Richmond, Virginia (now I am a wedding photographer based in Winchester, VA.) This book is unique. I have a huge collection of contemporary Christian titles. I have perused many, many others at various gigantic booksellers and on-line. And never before have I found a book that practically PLEADS with today's youth generation to set aside its typical "I wanna be a millionaire" leanings and leave a lasting legacy....win souls for Jesus Christ. Christian Carswell cannot urge you too strongly to buy and soak-up this wonderful book.
Piper at his best! Sep 26, 2008
I've been reading Pastor John Piper since the mid 1980's. I've pretty much read everything he has ever put into print.
This is vintage Piper. He is at is best in Don't Waste Your life.
His words drip with passion, heart, fire, and stirs one's heart to be sold out for the Gospel on almost every page.
I've given it as a gift many times. It can be read in short bursts or one can finish it in a couple hours in one sitting.
