Overview

Don't Waste Your Life by John Piper

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.

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!

This is my first Piper-read book. I am new to Reformed theology. I am 56.5 years old. I have wasted most of my life. I struggle with understanding Piperisms. He is a very dry writer to me. I understand Calvinism better than I do Piper. In all honesty, I am convicted by some what he writes. I do appreciate some of his wisdom. It is not a high priority in reading. I have read most of it. In putting my life back in a Godly manner, other books have more revelance.

Most of the reviews I have read are from collge age students, but I read it about seven years out of college and find it that much more impacting on my life! I have a deeper understanding as to why our society has shaped our thinking for the worst. This book unlocks those chains and give you direction and know how in living a Christian lifestyle with excitement and optimism. I also felt like it gave more insight as to how God loves us.

If you are a bored Christian, feeling like you've heard it all, you need to read this book. It has the capacity to turn you on your head, urging you to rethink the 'God loves me' and 'WIFM' mentality that is taught at most churches today. If you are bored and feeling lost, unfed, this book will tell you why. You've been looking for the wrong thing. You've been focusing your energies in the wrong direction. God does have a plan for you and your life - but it isn't what you think it is.
