11) Free eBook by Piper on C.S. Lewis

alive-to-wonderLike we said last week, it’s one thing when a book is on sale for a lower price. It’s quite another when you can get it for free. THIS week, that’s exactly what’s happening with John Piper’s book, “Alive to Wonder: Celebrating the Influence of C. S. Lewis.” It’s available as an ebook at…

We all know that C.S. Lewis wrote “Chronicles of Narnia,” but perhaps fewer of us realize how gifted and skilled he became as an apologist (someone who answers the question, “Why believe,” and a maybe even a theologian. Piper reveals it all — the man, the impact, and the personal testimony.

6) John Piper has a Mean Streak

At least that’s what he encourages us to develop in his message, “Make War.”

For more on this, see his sermon notes at…

As you’ll see in the video, he wants us to get serious about waging war against the flesh, against pride, and against the powers of this dark world. I remember Ralph Winter writing once, as well, that we need a wartime mentality to win these battles. We take bigger risks during times of war. We wage all that we have. We sacrifice EVERYTHING. That’s what Piper is urging. Let’s lay it all out there. (Thanks for bubbling this up to us, Beth!)

2) Fantastic Mobilization Resource: “Don’t Waste Your Life” Group Study

don't waste your lifeWhen my son found a copy of the book, “Don’t Waste Your Life,” on a table at Fort Benning several years ago, it was a life-changing experience for him. He was processing out of the army having been hit by a career-ending knee injury. His lifelong dream was crashing in around him. In the middle of all the swirl of emotions, John Piper’s book was critical in helping him rebuild a dream — a dream that has him in the Middle East today, helping people rebuild their own dreams. That’s why I’m excited about the group study featured here…

In this newly designed kit, small groups and classes will be able to maximize John Piper’s biblical charge to make our lives count for eternity. Piper’s central thought is that millions waste their lives on seeking a kind of “fatal success,” all because they have not awakened to the simple, biblical reality that “to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” This valuable resource can assist churches, small groups, and teachers in reversing that empty trend.

The newly redesigned kit combines a group study edition based on John Piper’s best-selling book Don’t Waste Your Life, with a ten-session DVD featuring his teaching, plus a full-length study guide and leader materials. It contains everything a ministry or facilitator needs to stimulate discussion within a group and to convey Piper’s passion to make our lives count for eternity.
