Item description for Don't Waste Your Life by john piper...

Overview
John Piper writes, ¿I will tell you what a tragedy is. I will show you how to waste your life. Consider this story from the February 1998 Reader¿s Digest: A couple `took early retirement from their jobs in the Northeast five years ago when he was 59 and she was 51. Now they live in Punta Gorda, Florida, where they cruise on their 30-foot trawler, play softball and collect shells. . . .¿ Picture them before Christ at the great day of judgment: `Look, Lord. See my shells.¿ That is a tragedy.

¿God created us to live with a single passion: to joyfully display his supreme excellence in all the spheres of life. The wasted life is the life without this passion. God calls us to pray and think and dream and plan and work not to be made much of, but to make much of him in every part of our lives.¿

Most people slip by in life without a passion for God, spending their lives on trivial diversions, living for comfort and pleasure, and perhaps trying to avoid sin. This book will warn you not to get caught up in a life that counts for nothing. It will challenge you to live and die boasting in the cross of Christ and making the glory of God your singular passion. If you believe that to live is Christ and to die is gain, read this book, learn to live for Christ, and don¿t waste your life!

Reviews - What do customers think about Don't Waste Your Life?

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.
