This is more a booklet than a book as it comprises just over fifty pages. It is vintage Piper, calling the people of God to a life of active risk taking service for Jesus Christ. The subtitle is as good as the title, Better to lose your life than waste it. After a forward by David Platt the book has eight short chapters each designed to push and entice followers of Jesus Christ out of their comfort zone and into battle. Piper writes this book to give readers and taste for the more substantial book "Don't waste your life."
If you are looking for a giveaway booklet to stir friends for the new year this is it.
