John Piper writes, I will tell you what a tragedy is. I will show you how to waste your life. Consider this story from the February 1998 Reader's Digest: A couple 'took early retirement from their jobs in the Northeast five years ago when he was 59 and she was 51. Now they live in Punta Gorda, Florida, where they cruise on their 30-foot trawler, play softball and collect shells. . . .' Picture them before Christ at the great day of judgment: 'Look, Lord. See my shells.' That is a tragedy.

God created us to live with a single passion: to joyfully display his supreme excellence in all the spheres of life. The wasted life is the life without this passion. God calls us to pray and think and dream and plan and work not to be made much of, but to make much of him in every part of our lives.

This work is a passionate call for this generation to make their lives count for eternity. John Piper acknowledges that the risks for those who seek to accomplish something in life - risks in relationships for the sake of righteousness and authenticity, risks with money for the cause of the Gospel, and risks in witnessing to the truth and beauty of Christ. Readers will find their passion for the cross of Christ enlarged as a result of listening to this title. Download and start listening now!

    " Really good book. Calls us to a proper perspective of this life and urges action. One that I will probably re-read throughout the roller coaster life of my faithfulness and discipline. "

    " A wake up call to Christians -- are you really a Christ-follower? This book, along with "Not a Fan" and "Radical" should be mandatory reading for anyone who considers themselves a believer. Warning: Don't read it if you don't want to change. "

    " I agreed with everything this book had to say... it was just a bit drawn out for me. I imagine it to be written for a slightly younger audience... perhaps late teens. "
