Using Paul's radical letter to the Philippians as his road map, Matt Chandler forsakes the trendy to invite readers into authentic Christian maturity.

The short book of Philippians is one of the most quoted in the Bible, yet Paul wrote it not for the popular sound bites, but to paint a picture of a mature Christian faith. While many give their lives to Jesus, few then go on to live a life of truly vibrant faith.

In this disruptively inspiring book, Chandler offers tangible ways to develop a faith of pursuing, chasing, knowing, and loving Jesus. Because if we clean up our lives but don't get Jesus, we've lost! So let the goal be Him. To live is Christ, to die is gain—this is the message of the letter. Therefore, our lives should be lived to Him, through Him, for Him, with Him, about Him— everything should be about Jesus.

Review:

"The church has been blessed by the book of Philippians ever since Paul wrote it, and this presentation of it is fresh and powerful. Matt mines the riches of this great Bible book to teach us to never be content with stagnant Christianity."
(Kyle Idleman)

"Matt's words will kick you in the tail in the best way. We don't want to live numb, and we often need a kick to remember life isn't a game and God is no myth. You will find yourself craving God again and craving everything else a little less."
(Jennie Allen)

"To known Jesus is the essence of life, and I love how Matt Chandler stirs up our affections for Him in his book To Live Is Christ, to Die Is Gain. Matt's beautiful, practical, and straightforward unplacking of Philippians will nudge you toward maturity ... and a more robust walk with the Savior. Get it, and dive in today."
(Louie Giglio)

"I trust Matt Chandler to speak on any biblical issue, but especially on discipleship. This book will help you live as Jesus would if He were in your place."
(Dr. Darrin Patrick)

"Few man whom I have personally known have truly suffered. Even fewer have I known who have suffered well. Matt Chandler is one of them. Matt has written an excellent book reminding us that one of our primary callings as followers of Christ is to die to ourselves and that only through that death can we truly live."
(Matt Carter)

"Matt Chandler has offered readers rich biblical wisdom in his writings thus far, and To Live Is Christ, to Die Is Gain is no exception. This book calls us to follow Jesus with everything we've got. It's as simple and as profound as that. This powerful new work cuts through all the trappings and goes to the heart of the gospel: Jesus. Highly recommended!"
(Mark Batterson)

"Matt Chandler is a man captivated by Jesus, the gospel, and grace. In this, his latest book, he takes us on a journey into the depths of Paul's famous letter to the Philippians and reveals the full beauty of a life so centered on Jesus that all else pales in comparison."
(Larry Osborne)
