It's easy to slip through life without taking any risks-without making your life count. But life ought not be wasted. You don't need to know a lot of things to make a lasting difference in the world, but you do have to know the few, great, unchanging, and glorious things that matter and be willing to live and to die for them.
John Piper's plea to a generation is, "Don't waste your life!" This book is a passionate call to make your life count for eternity. He acknowledges that there are risks for those who seek to make a lasting difference by faith, yet he believes that they are risks worth taking for the cause of the Gospel.
Each book includes a DVD featuring Piper speaking on this topic. If you believe that to live is Christ and to die is gain, read this book, learn to live for Christ, and grab the opportunity to make your life matter!

John Piper encourages Christians to eschew seeking worldly joy and instead to live lives dedicated to Christ. Piper is writing at his most humble and transparent, and Lloyd James brings home his message like a trusted friend, the words soothing, encouraging, and inspiring. Fully capturing the tone of the piece, James reads it the way it should be heard, never rushing or forcing a point. Together Piper and James give listeners a sense of intimacy and propriety, treating the material as the precious information it is.
