Don't Waste Your Life (Review)

Don't Waste Your LifeI just reviewed the book, Don't Waste Your Life by John Piper, over at the Christian Audio site. (I love that site!)

Here is the review:
Don't Waste Your Life by John Piper was an absolutely amazing book.

He begins the book with a little bit of a personal back story to the topic of the book. He goes into detail about one particular event from his childhood regarding the conversion of an older man and the tears that man shed as ye cried, "I've wasted it, I've wasted it!"

Though there is great joy in the salvation of any soul, and in many ways the soul that is in its last days on this earth, there is still that sorrow from a wasted life.

The reality of a wasted life leads to the question of, "What is a wasted life?" and "How can I keep from wasting my life?" These questions became important to John Piper, they are important to me, and they should be important to you.

I highly recommend this book as it shares Pastor Piper's unraveling of these questions in his own life and his compassionate explanations for the sake of the reader's life.
My reviews are never as long as I want them to be... but that doesn't mean that I don't really love this book.  Please consider getting this book.  It may save you from a wasted life.
