As social justice, environmental causes, and not-for-profit ministries rise in popularity, more and more people are looking for a life of adventure, to live for something greater than themselves. Helping Christians put their faith into action for the glory of God, popular pastor John Piper is releasing this stand-alone edition of chapter five from his best-selling book Don't Waste Your Life. Piper teaches that risk is an action that opens us up to the possibility of loss or injury, but that living for Christ necessarily involves taking risks in faith, a road that ultimately leads to fullness of joy, the glory of God, and the good of others.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 12/29/2013

    " A short and excellent book by Piper. It speaks to Christians and the need for risk in their life, but only right risk, which is for the glory of God and dying to self idols/comforts. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josueraul Manriquez | 12/9/2013

    " This is a very short book which can easily be read in one sitting, yet it is full of biblical truth that spoiled Christians ought to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maggie Fink | 11/28/2013

    " A quick, encouraging and thought provoking read from John Piper "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wade | 10/29/2013

    " This is a short book where Piper uses a handful of passages of Scripture to explain (as the title of the book says) that it is not just preferred but, in fact, RIGHT to risk for the Lord. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 9/11/2013

    " Not a particularly profound book, although he does make some good points. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heidi | 8/25/2013

    " Very good book! Very challenging! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel | 6/21/2013

    " This is a short quick read. It has an impactful and simple message though. Taking risks is right. Taking risks causes us to rely on Christ and his work for us. Our days are numbered and its better not to waste them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam | 4/4/2013

    " Tim Challies criticisms aside, this is a great little book. I loved Don't Waste Your Life and appreciate the emphasis of this smaller part of the larger book. Good stuff. Look forward to giving this away to others. "
