Overview

This valuable resource is designed to be used in a ten-session, guided group study that examines each chapter of John Piper's best-selling book.

The average person would sum up his ideal life in words that describe the American dream: College. Job. Marriage. House. Kids. Comfortable income. Retire. But did God design people for far more than this?

Yes, declares John Piper. Nevertheless, millions waste their lives on such trivial pursuits-all because they have not awakened to the simple, biblical reality that "to live is Christ, and to die is gain." This individualized resource, in accord with the other components in the redesigned Don't Waste Your Life Group Study Kit, can assist churches, small groups, and teachers in reversing that empty trend.

This full-length study guide is designed for use in a ten-session group study that explores each chapter of John Piper's best-selling book. It contains clearly defined objectives for each lesson, questions for reflection and discussion, a leader's guide and other supplemental resources, and blank pages for note-taking-all to stimulate life-changing discussion within a group and to convey Piper's passion to make our lives count for eternity.

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.
