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!
“Risk is right. Be mastered by one thing. Make much of Christ and him crucified. Those exhortations—and many more like them—are just as relevant today as they were twenty years ago. As a young man, I was captivated by Piper’s pleas for ‘fear-defeating joy in Jesus Christ.’ I still need this message, but now I want my children to hear it as well. I’m confident, and prayerful, that God will continue to use this powerful book for twenty more years and beyond.”

“This message changed my generation. I hope it will change the next ones too. We never grow out of the need to be reminded that God demands our souls, our lives, our all.”
