It's easy to slip through life without taking any risks without making your life count. But life ought not be wasted. You don't need to know a lot of things to make a lasting difference in the world, but you do have to know the few, great, unchanging, and glorious things that matter and be willing to live and to die for them.
John Piper's plea to a generation is, "Don't waste your life!" This book is a passionate call to make your life count for eternity. He acknowledges that there are risks for those who seek to make a lasting difference by faith, yet he believes that they are risks worth taking for the cause of the Gospel.
Each book includes a DVD featuring Piper speaking on this topic. If you believe that to live is Christ and to die is gain, read this book, learn to live for Christ, and grab the opportunity to make your life matter!

“This book ranks among Piper’s very best. As a sophomore in college, Don’t Waste Your Life was intensely and profoundly life changing. Years later the book still issues a radical challenge: be mastered by one great, all-controlling, majestic thing and be willing to live and die for it. I wish every college student or soon-to-be college student would read this book. Great for discussion, parents and pastors should read this book with their students, grappling together with what it means to live a non-wasted life.”
