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.

This book 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 reading this book. Download and start listening now!

    " The gospel is God Himself. Simple enough. But the struggle really happens when we keep substituting other things for the gospel! Other things: eternal life, justification, salvation, gifts other than God that are ours to enjoy when we receive the Savior, our own passion for lost souls being saved because of our witness... you get the idea. God is the Gospel disabuse us from all these misconceptions of the central Christian message. "

    " "The final good that makes the Good News good is God" John Piper. A message well preached. "

    " This was such a helpful, God-exalting read. Often we take our focus off of Jesus and put it on works or behavior, rather than focusing on the greatest treasure of the Gospel: Jesus and His glory. Piper does a tremendous job of both gently reminding and urgently exhorting the reader to consider and act upon this reality, that God is the Gospel and without Him being the focus of the Gospel, it is no Gospel at all. I would highly recommend this book to anyone. "
