This valuable resource is designed to be used in a ten-session, guided group study that examines each chapter of John Piper's best-selling book.


The average person would sum up his ideal life in words that describe the American dream: College. Job. Marriage. House. Kids. Comfortable income. Retire. But did God design people for far more than this?


Yes, declares John Piper. Nevertheless, millions waste their lives on such trivial pursuits-all because they have not awakened to the simple, biblical reality that "to live is Christ, and to die is gain." This individualized resource, in accord with the other components in the redesigned Don't Waste Your Life Group Study Kit, can assist churches, small groups, and teachers in reversing that empty trend.


This full-length study guide is designed for use in a ten-session group study that explores each chapter of John Piper's best-selling book. It contains clearly defined objectives for each lesson, questions for reflection and discussion, a leader's guide and other supplemental resources, and blank pages for note-taking-all to stimulate life-changing discussion within a group and to convey Piper's passion to make our lives count for eternity.

John Piper

John Stephen Piper was born 11 January 1946 in Chattanooga, Tennessee, to Bill and Ruth Piper. The Pipers soon moved to Greenville, South Carolina, where John spent his growing-up years. His father was an itinerant evangelist who also ministered through international radio and Bible courses. John has written a tribute to his mother, who died in 1974, in the booklet, What's the Difference (Crossway Books, 1990) which is also chapter one of the book, Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood (Crossway Books, 1991).

At Wheaton College (1964-68), John majored in Literature and minored in Philosophy. Studying Romantic Literature with Clyde Kilby stimulated the poetic side of his nature and today he regularly writes poems to celebrate special family occasions and rich, biblical truths. At Wheaton John also met Noel Henry whom he married in 1968.

Following college, John completed a Bachelor of Divinity degree at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California (1968-71). While at Fuller, John discovered the writings of Jonathan Edwards.

John did his doctoral work in New Testament Studies at the University of Munich, Munich, West Germany (1971-74). His dissertation, Love Your Enemies, was published by Cambridge University Press and Baker Book House (and is now available through Crossway). Upon completion of his doctorate, he went on to teach Biblical Studies at Bethel College in St. Paul, Minnesota for six years (1974-80).

In 1980, sensing an irresistible call to preach, John became the senior pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where he ministered for 33 years, until 2013. Together with his people, John was dedicated to spreading a passion for the supremacy of God in all things for the joy of all peoples through Jesus Christ - a mission he continues now for the wider church through the ministry of desiringGod.org. John says of his ministry:
"The ministry of preaching is the central labor of my life. My prayer is that through that ministry and everything else I do the great glory of our God and Savior Jesus Christ would be magnified as more and more people come to live out the obedience of faith more and more deeply."

John is the author of over 50 books and now frequently travels to speak, and writes regularly, through Desiring God.

John and Noel have four sons, a daughter, and twelve grandchildren.
