Publisher's Summary

John Piper writes, "I will tell you what a tragedy is. I will show you how to waste your life. Consider this story from the February 1998 Reader's Digest: A couple "took early retirement from their jobs in the Northeast five years ago when he was 59 and she was 51. Now they live in Punta Gorda, Florida, where they cruise on their 30-foot trawler, play softball and collect shells. . . ." Picture them before Christ at the great day of judgment: "Look, Lord. See my shells." That is a tragedy."

This book is a passionate call for this generation to make their lives count for eternity. John Piper acknowledges that the risks for those who seek to accomplish something in life - risks in relationships for the sake of righteousness and authenticity, risks with money for the cause of the Gospel, and risks in witnessing to the truth and beauty of Christ. Readers will find their passion for the cross of Christ enlarged as a result of reading this book.

    "now even more in love with Christ Jesus, my Lord."

    again Piper paints beautifully the relationship between Christ Jesus and who we are in Him. it causes me to think what Christ Jesus did on the cross and why. image the suffering not in terms of physical but the spiritual. this book caused me to realize it not about religion as much as it is about relationship with Christ Jesus, when the Pharisees trapped/set up the woman in adultery and then drug her out in the street and threw her at Jesus feet, most likely she was naked for all to see, they used her to trick Christ demanding she be stoned, they weren't expecting what ever it was Christ wrote on the ground..one by one they walked away, I wonder what Christ wrote. maybe their names? or their sins of adultery, ,then Jesus stood and asked the shamed and terrified woman "where are your accuser's?" She said they are gone sir and Jesus said" I don't accuse you either, go and sin no more" that is God's grace. God, pure love holiness light came humbly down wrapped in flesh to where we are, so we can better relate with Him, love Him in a way we can understand. image the love He has for us to know the suffering He would endure. On the cross He became our sin fully experiencing the fallout and darkness for every soul paid in full. His gift to us was on the cross paid in full to rise 3 days later, leaving with us the Holy Spirit, our comforter. He gave us the gift of eternal life with the One who loves us more than we can comprehend.
