Product Description

In this provocative work Don't Waste Your Life, Pastor John Piper challenges us to set aside the trivial pursuit of self-fulfillment so that we can develop a deeper passion for God. Piper believes that if we passionately submit the sufferings we endure, the risks we take, and the goals we set to the pursuit of God's glory, then not one moment of our lives will be wasted. Don't miss this opportunity to rekindle your passion for the cross of Christ and the glory of God.

Author Bio

John Piper (DTheol, University of Munich) is the founder and teacher of desiringGod.org and the chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary. He served for thirty-three years as the senior pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and is the author of more than fifty books, including Desiring GodDon’t Waste Your LifeThis Momentary MarriageA Peculiar Glory; and Reading the Bible Supernaturally.

ChristianBookPreviews.com

“John Piper has written another excellent book to add to his body of work; Don’t Waste Your Life (Crossway) is valuable reading. The style is easy, but the content will have you going back again and again to extract truth for deeper meditation.
“The opening chapters are autobiographical, setting the stage for principles that follow. He gives credit to his early influences at home, at college, and in his reading. The writings of Jonathan Edwards provided a turning point in his realization of life’s purpose: “The wasted life is the life without a passion for the supremacy of God in all things for the joy of all peoples.” This concept of joy has been dealt with in his earlier work, Desiring God: Meditations of a Christian Hedonist. Piper’s topic headings within each chapter are as thought provoking as the content: Is Eternal Life a Heaven Full of Mirrors? Shall We Prize What He Presents or What it Portrays of Him? I found the chapter “Making Much of Christ From 8 to 5” very encouraging, and the subsequent chapter on missions was sobering. Perhaps the illustration that captures the essence of the book best is the story from Reader’s Digest recounted in chapter three, and highlighted on the back cover. Piper tells of the couple that took early retirement in Florida, playing softball, cruising on their boat, and collecting seashells. “Picture them before Christ at the great day of judgment: ‘Look, Lord. See my shells.’ That is a tragedy.”
“John Piper has a way of presenting deep truth in a way that is engaging and understandable. He has wrestled with his content, and the book’s final chapter is his prayer for the reader to not waste life, to be glad in God at any cost, to treasure Christ above life. You will be humbled as you read.” – Pam Glass, Christian Book Previews.com

    Recently after delivering a Sunday message, I was asked if I read a lot of books by John Piper. That made me chuckle because I've read more of his books than books by any other author. I first read his book, Don't Waste Your Life, over a decade ago shortly after the book's release and not too long after my move to China. I wasn't a very mature Christian back then (and I still have a ton to learn), but despite the seriousness of Don't Waste Your Life, it's easy to understand and can be enjoyed by believers and nonbelievers in all stages of life. This can't be said about all of Pastor Piper's books since some of his books are poetic pieces or highly academic.

    Don't Waste Your Life is a 190-page book that is filled with Scripture and divided into the ten chapters listed below. I read the book as part of a small group study in which we tackled a very manageable one chapter a week. A group study edition, group study kit, and study guide are now available.

    1. My Search for a Single Passion to Live By

    2. Breakthrough - the Beauty of Christ, My Joy

    3. Boasting Only in the Cross, The Blazing Center of the Glory of God

    4. Magnifying Christ Through Pain and Death

    5. Risk is Right - Better to Lose Your Life Than to Waste It

    6. The Goal of Life - Gladly Making Others Glad in God

    7. Living to Prove He is More Precious Than Life

    8. Making Much of Christ from 8 to 5

    9. The Majesty of Christ in Missions and Mercy - A Plea to This Generation

    10. My Prayer - Let None Say in the End, "I've Wasted It"

    Perhaps the biggest impact the book made on me was an illustration found in chapter three concerning a Readers Digest article. The article talked about a couple that retired early so they could ride a boat, play softball, and collect seashells in Florida. Unfortunately, this is the American dream so many are wasting their lives on.

    If you are interested in learning how this tough life is supposed to be lived, I recommend Pastor Pipers Dont Waste Your Life. You wont get a feel-good message, but you will be pointed to the one who can make your life mean more than riding motorbikes, playing soccer, and collecting Starbuck mugs.

    to the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ! Amen. Romans 16:27
