This is the powerful true story of 15 year old BJ Higgins, an ordinary young man with an extraordinary dedication to sharing the gospel. Stricken with a deadly infection on the mission field in Peru, BJ kept witnessing to the love of Christ even as he lay dying.

When was the last time you gave your all--for God? BJ Higgins loved God with everything he had and worked passionately to bring God's love to the whole world. He believed in using the opportunities God gave him and boldly shared the gospel wherever he went. BJ's life on earth ended after a six-week battle with an infection contracted on the mission field. He was just fifteen years old. I Would Die for You tells the extraordinary story of an ordinary young man. BJ's journals and blogs, along with testimony from family and friends, reveal a young man whose short life left an impression on many--including Bart Millard, lead singer of Mercy Me, who wrote and recorded a song to honor him. BJ put the cause of Christ above his own personal comfort. This powerful true story will amaze, inspire, and challenge you to live every day making a difference for God. "How could someone who lived only a few years leave such an indelible heartprint on the world? This story is not for the faint of heart. Not only does it tell of an amazing young man but of the amazing God he served. Every parent and every student should read this book. When you do, you'll agree: BJ Higgins is this generation's Jim Elliot."--Dr. Walker Moore, president and founder, Awe Star Ministries; author, Rite of Passage Parenting and Rite of Passage Parenting Workbook "There is a possibility that this life isn't going to just be a bed of roses from here on out. Are we willing to make a sacrifice for the kingdom? Because that's what BJ did. I may die of old age in my sleep and [my life would] not have as much meaning as BJ's life did. I Would Die for You is a challenge, a battle cry for all the body."--Bart Millard, lead singer, MercyMe

More Than An Awesome Book
5 stars By Ruby, Mar 18 2010
This book is amazing. It is encouraging me to live my life for God. I feel like BJ is the guy half of me. But I know that there are things that he was that I haven't come to be yet, and thats where it encourages me to keep going, and to keep growing in God.
I advise you to get your kids (no matter what ages, but Im a teen so mainly for there) to read this book cause if you want your kid to grow up in any kind of way to be like someone this is it. Inspirational and awesome. For more than the teen age group.
