With all due respect to John Piper, who has criticized book reviewers for saying, 'This book is a must read' because only the Bible is a must read--I would have to say that Don't Waste Your Life is a one of those rare books that every believer "Must Read." In this book, Piper shares with the reader the pivotal moment in his life's journey in which he found that Single Passion to Live By--the beauty of Christ. Having just read of the intensity of John Bunyan, Owen, and Spurgeon's spirituality in another book, I was struck by how similar they are to Piper, which these pages reveal. Piper recommends that "whatever you do, find the God-centered, Christ-exalting, Bible-saturated passion of your life, and find your way to say it and live for it and die for it. And you will make a difference that lasts. You will not waste your life." John's prayer for the reader is "May the one thing that you cherish, the one thing that you rejoice in and exult over, be the cross of Jesus Christ." You will not waste your time with this book.
