    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    This Book is Awesome!!!

    This book was completely amazing! This book pretty much discusses the title, the whole book is about not wasting your life. It really puts in perspective what Christians should be doing in there lives instead of sitting around doing nothing. This book really motivated me to just take my cross and run with it. This book is a must read and it should be in every Christian's collection. Go buy it, you'll thank the Lord for it!!!

    Well I received this book for graduation and I flipped through the pages and read the back cover and was totally appalled at the way the book approached the subject of Christianity and faith. For one the excerpt on the back of the book talks about people collecting shells on the beach after retirement and speaks of it as a tragedy, perhaps these people enjoy collecting shells in their free time while another portion of their time has been devoted to spreading the Good News and loving Jesus...I don't know it just seems like this book was very judgemental of those who are not Christians and it seemed like to me it was encouraging those who are believers to separate themselves from those who are not when, in all actuality, we need to be surrounding ourselves with those who do not believe in order to spread the Good News. I seriously wouldn't waste my money on this. Another thing was that I received it for graduation and it was kind of a slap in the face to see this title and be like, "Well I guess they think I'm headed in the wrong direction" I'm sure it wasn't meant like that but it kind of offended me.

    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Don't Read This Book Unless You Are Ready to Change.

    I have often wondered what it truly meant to Glorify God and enjoy Him forever. I have, of course, always heard to glorify God and have always tried to do so. But I still think that I had trouble figuring out exactly what that phrase means: "Glorify God."

    This book gives a good taste of what it means to Glorify God. It is not a technical theological treatise. But it gives enough to give you a taste (you'll probably want to read more of Piper after this!) Just enough for you to desire more and more of Christ Himself. And that is what I mean by not reading this book unless you are ready to change. When you read this book, get ready to feel, yes, feel and know and desire and delight in none other than Christ Himself. And further, you will desire that others delight in Him also. AND, you will feel that you will stop at nothing to achieve that goal. That is the part of warning. Get ready to change. But get ready to do so from the overflow of having to know more and more of God in Christ and helping others to do the same. This book is not solely about feeling or knowing, but a combination of both.
