The New Testament defines Christians very differently. Piper defines new birth biblically and helps us to embrace the reality of it: "I hope that showing that the new birth is not in our control helps make pastors and other Christians desperate for the supernatural in their ministries."

I lost my Christian mentor, my sister, & then my best friend over a period of 6 months. I was struggling with wanting to slow my pace of life vs. continuing an aggressive ministry I've been blessed with being part of for 8 years. God spoke, "It's time to live, not die." The book does not deal specifically with death impact; that's just what I was struggling with. The book deals specifically with the work, the Power & the Presence of Christ in me. There's no death in Christ; there's only life in Christ. Live!!!
