John Piper – Don't Waste Your Life

I finished John Piper’s Don’t Waste Your Life the other day so I’d write a short review here. When I first heard about this book I thought it was going to be a shallow, almost pop-Christian book geared towards teens. While it is geared toward teens it is far from shallow or pop-Christian! It is honestly one of the best books I have ever read! Piper does an amazing Job of communicating the fact that the un-wasted life is one that treasures and exults Christ over anything else. Paul says, “as it is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be at all ashamed, but that with full courage now as always Christ will be honored in my body, whether by life or by death” — for Paul the oposite of shame was not that he be honored, but that Christ be honored! Though it is impossible to sum up the book in a blog post, that verse comes pretty close! READ IT! Also check out this video that goes along with the book.
