Clayton King has spoken to two-million-plus people in 30 countries, including hundreds of thousands in the teen-to-thirties age group. Inspiring, humorous, energetic, he presents Christianity’s unchanging core message with new vividness and passion.

In Dying to Live, he challenges Christians to throw aside the “bigger, richer, more successful” paradigm and risk following Christ unreservedly. Readers will freshly see the joy of laying their lives down for the gospel as Clayton...

  • tells stories―his own and others’―that give poignant, attractive pictures of radical discipleship
  • considers why people are drawn to those willing to sacrifice themselves for others
  • examines Jesus’ paradox: that giving away your life is the only way to find it

Believers hungering for a life that’s worth dying for will be electrified by this passionate call to the bold virtues of living all-out for God, risking death, knowing their life is significant and their future is secure.

About the Author:

Clayton King, a pastor, evangelist, missionary, and author, has been dedicated since age 14 to proclaiming the gospel and calling Christians to live out the life of Jesus. He has spoken to millions of people in 30-plus countries and written numerous books, including Dying to Live, Amazing Encounters with God, and 12 Questions to Ask Before You Marry (coauthored with his wife, Charie). Clayton loves good books, the outdoors, strong coffee, dirt bikes and four-wheelers, and especially his wife and children.

Review:

“The call of Jesus to His followers is to come and die. That is what it means to ‘take up your cross.’ I am so thankful for a book that will cut against the grain of easy-believism and fad Christianity. In these pages, Clayton connects the theology of the Lordship of Christ to the practical, daily challenges of serving Christ and others for the sake of the gospel.”
―Dr. Johnny Hunt, president of the Southern Baptist Convention and pastor of First Baptist Church, Woodstock, Georgia



“I have known Clayton since we were teenagers, and there is one thing that has always characterized his ministry and his message: He proclaims the gospel by making a big deal out of Jesus and by calling people to radical commitment. He preaches this message as our teaching pastor at Newspring Church.

“That is what Dying to Live is all about. It’s bold. It’s challenging. It’s funny. And it’s real, just like Clayton. Don’t just read this book. Live according to it!”
―Perry Noble, senior pastor, Newspring Church



“Since I first met Clayton in the mid-90s, he has been a consistent voice calling people to die to themselves for the sake of the gospel. This book is a deep and compelling argument for living life contrary to the way the world tells you to live. In putting Christ and others first, we actually find the kingdom of God coming among us in power.”
―Mac Powell, lead singer, Third Day
