Author Bio

Clayton King, a pastor, evangelist, missionary, and author, has been dedicated since age 14 to proclaiming the gospel and calling Christians to live out the life of Jesus. He has spoken to millions of people in 30-plus countries and written numerous books, including Dying to Live, Amazing Encounters with God, and 12 Questions to Ask Before You Marry (coauthored with his wife, Charie). Clayton loves good books, the outdoors, strong coffee, dirt bikes and four-wheelers, and especially his wife and children.


Clayton King presents a bold paradox within his book Dying to Live: in order truly to live, we must die to ourselves. King challenges his readers by asking provoking questions about the way we, as proclaimed Christians, live out each day. How do we spend our time and money? How much effort do we put into witnessing? What is our prayer life like? Are we evidencing the cause of Christ in our thoughts and behavior and plans and occupations?

King’s 165-page piece is packed with powerful examples of previous leaders, martyrs, and pastors who sacrificed everything for a much greater cause: God’s cause. It is within these messages that we begin to understand what it means to die for Christ. King makes it obvious that the commitment made by the apostles and disciples is not out of date in the 21st century.

Dying to Live states its point clearly. King is not afraid to step on toes or offend, but he also encourages lukewarm Christians to set their lives on fire for Christ.

Prepare yourself for a fast paced, well-written, and intuitive guide on how to die and lose everything, yet gain something much better in the process. – Nandy Rajanayakam, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

Editorial Reviews

"The call of Jesus to His followers is to come and die. That is what it means to ‘take up your cross.' I am so thankful for a book that will cut against the grain of easy-believism and fad Christianity. In these pages, Clayton connects the theology of the Lordship of Christ to the practical, daily challenges of serving Christ and others for the sake of the gospel."
—Dr. Johnny Hunt, president of the Southern Baptist Convention and pastor of First Baptist Church, Woodstock, Georgia

"I have known Clayton since we were teenagers, and there is one thing that has always characterized his ministry and his message: He proclaims the gospel by making a big deal out of Jesus and by calling people to radical commitment. He preaches this message as our teaching pastor at Newspring Church.
"That is what Dying to Live is all about. It's bold. It's challenging. It's funny. And it's real, just like Clayton. Don't just read this book. Live according to it!"
—Perry Noble, senior pastor, Newspring Church

"Since I first met Clayton in the mid-90s, he has been a consistent voice calling people to die to themselves for the sake of the gospel. This book is a deep and compelling argument for living life contrary to the way the world tells you to live. In putting Christ and others first, we actually find the kingdom of God coming among us in power."
—Mac Powell, lead singer, Third Day

"Dying to Live is more than a book title by my friend Clayton King. It is the essence of the Christian faith! We exist for God and for others, to bring those who are far from God into abundant life in Christ. We do that by embracing sacrifice, service, and selfless faith. This book is a masterful exposition of the kind of life Jesus commands us to live by His Holy Spirit. You would do well to read it over and over again."
—Pastor Steven Furtick, Elevation Church

"Clayton King's Dying to Live propels you forward in the abundant life. How in the world does one advance in life by dying? The answer comes in high-definition clarity through the journey Clayton takes his readers on, sentence by sentence, page by page, and chapter by chapter. This expedition demands sweat and sacrifices that cause great pain, but the destination brings greater pleasure to the Christian whose goal is God's glory!"
—Tony Nolan, evangelist, author, and pastor

"Clayton King's Dying to Live is a powerful plea for Christians to die to themselves and live for Christ, to reject the superficial and live for the eternal. King has the unique ability to communicate biblical truth in a way that is disarming, winsome, and persuasive.

"The reader will find solid biblical teaching spiced with riveting personal stories, quotes from respected theologians, and diverse cultural references. King moves easily between the Bible's teaching, Bon Jovi's lyrics, and Braveheart's battle scenes. Recommended especially for students and young adults."
—Bruce Riley Ashford, Dean of The College at Southeastern Research Fellow, The Center for Faith and Culture, Associate Professor of Philosophy and Intercultural Studies, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

"There is no one I know in America who is more gifted at calling people to the gospel than Clayton King. I thank God for His gift to the church in Clayton, as God has used him to bring lots of people to Christ here at the Summit Church. This book contains the best of Clayton, and in it you sense the radical working of the Spirit that has characterized his ministry. I warmly recommend it!"
—J.D. Greear, lead pastor, The Summit Church

"Dying to Live is a great book that focuses the reader to live their life for the glory of God. It is written in a easy-to-read storytelling format, combining humor and raw transparency from the author's life...Clayton King is a great storyteller and a great writer. You will be glad you purchased a copy of this incredibly honest, spiritually sound and wonderfully hope-filled journey through the Christ life and all its meant to be in Dying to Live!"
—Dr. Matthew Lee Smith PhD, Executive Director, EaglesInLeadership.org
