Nasser has created a book that even the non-reader will enjoy reading. He does this by creating forty short chapters (4-5 pages), that always starts with a short scripture passage that lays the foundation. His writing is filled with memorable illustrations, flickers of humor, and a challenge to an area of life that can hinder our devotion to Jesus Christ. When I read as a teen, often I would read a page and take in absolutely nothing as my mind was not focused. Nasser battles this by ending each ...more

This is one of the most challenging & effective devotional books I've ever read. Each chapter is a manageable length & ends with questions that you are prompted to answer by writing responses in the book. This format results in a more interactive reading experience and makes me feel more accountable - a daunting, but positive thing! The author asks tough questions, but questions that I need to take seriously if I truly seek a close, meaningful relationship with God. There's no better way ...more

I don't read devotional books, most of the time I personally find them hollow and superficial, but Nasser's "A Call to Die" was a great journey. It is serious and encouraging, and if you don't want God to rock your boat, I suggest you wait to read it till you do. Speaking as a youth minister, this study has a lot to offer to every believer, no matter what level they are in with their relationship to God. I highly recommend it.

Unless you are ready to be changed, do not read this book! It is very thought provoking, convicting, humbling, and challenging. David has done an awesome job not only with the content of this book but also the organization. It's as if each day prepared you for the next. If you can get through Day 14 without being changed, let me know.

It is impossible to finish this book as the same person who started it. Even the second time through the book. Deeply provoking, spiritually challenging, cut to the heart bridging the chasm between who you are and who you were created to be. Interesting and applicable to teens as well as adults.

What I enjoyed most about reading this book was it was a little more challenging than a book club since we each gave up something (we really enjoyed) for 40 days. Getting together to discuss not only the book but each of our struggles was really eye opening - depending on what each gave up. The book and more so the discussions really made me realize how blessed or spoiled (however anyone wants to look at it) we Americans are. The one thing that remained with me from this book was "cheap grace".

Not an easy book to read. I remember my youth group going through this book, and it really affected me. The best comparison I can make is to the exercise regimens of "Insanity" or "P90X"... only for fasting from something.... anything. It's a good book in general to help you stop a bad habit, or just to focus on spiritual things for 40 days.

Amazing but a challenging book, because it opens your eyes to how selfish your lifestyle is. Highly encourage all followers of Christ to go through this book and see how God makes changes in your life. I am thinking of re-reading this.

Probably should have a different title. It's really about becoming like Jesus on a daily basis, and that's all about living.

Chapters should be longer and more fully developed. Content is near 7th grade reading level. Repetitive questions in each chapter are a little mundane.

Great devotion written about following Jesus before people were writing books like that for students.

One of the best devotionals I have read. Reminds me of Steve Camp or Keith Green... Life-changing if you will let God use this book to speak truth to your heart.

I pick this book often simply to re-read portions that have enlightened, encouraged, or challenged me. Nasser has written an endearing classic of the Christian faith. Love it!
