Description
Millions of people are wasting their lives pursuing dreams of happiness that don't rise above a good marriage, nice kids, a successful career, a nice car, fun vacations, nice friends, a fun retirement, a painless death, and (hopefully) no hell. John Piper calls this a tragedy in the making. He argues that we were created for joy. We were designed to have one life-encompassing passion.

In this book he describes his own journey in discovering this great, single passion. And He pleads that at all costs we pursue our joy in the crucified Christ, who is the glory of God. The cost is great. But the joy is worth any cost. Don’t buy seductive, tragic promises of worldly joy. Don’t waste your life.

I loved it. Piper is excellent. The reading was well done as well, not boring or monotone.

This is your everlasting soul; this is your everlasting soul watching TV. Any questions?
A book that reminds me that any activity that moves me farther away from Christ is a waste to my life, and all activities must serve to move us closer to Christ, learn more about Christ, spread the Good News and therefore moves me closer to Christ is, well, NOT a waste to my life.

Don't Waste Your Life by John...
Don't Waste Your Life by John Piper was an absolutely amazing book.

He begins the book with a little bit of a personal back story to the topic of the book. He goes into detail about one particular event from his childhood regarding the conversion of an older man and the tears that man shed as ye cried, "I've wasted it, I've wasted it!"

Though there is great joy in the salvation of any soul, and in many ways the soul that is in its last days on this earth, there is still that sorrow from a wasted life.

The reality of a wasted life leads to the question of, "What is a wasted life?" and "How can I keep from wasting my life?" These questions became important to John Piper, they are important to me, and they should be important to you.

I highly recommend this book as it shares Pastor Piper's unraveling of these questions in his own life and his compassionate explanations for the sake of the reader's life.
