Have you have ever been at a crossroad in life, whether it is graduating, a new job, a new relationship or retirement, and wondered what matters or how to make your life count? Have you ever held a Bible and wondered how this book can really change you or how to even read it in a meaningful way?
John Piper delves into questions like these in “Don’t Waste Your Life” and “Reading the Bible Supernaturally,” two of his books that help others see and desire God. In his own words, “God is most glorified in us as we are most satisfied in him.” As a pastor of 33 years and the author of more than 50 books, Piper’s heart is for the Lord. He has started desiringGod.org to encourage and challenge people in their personal relationships with Christ.
“If you live gladly to make others glad in God, your life will be hard, your risks will be high and your joy will be full. This is not a book about how to avoid a wounded life, but how to avoid a wasted life. Some of you will die in the service of Christ. That will not be a tragedy. Treasuring life above Christ is a tragedy,” Piper shared on his website about his book “Don’t Waste Your Life.”
Grand Canyon Theological Seminary is pleased to host John Piper at the GCU Arena for a special two-day event on Friday, Oct. 27 and Saturday, Oct. 28. This event is truly for everyone, from all walks of life, who want to know more about God and the joy and purpose found in relationship with Him.
Tickets for this two-day event are available at the GCU Arena Box Office or online. To learn more about this event or the College of Theology visit our website or click the Request More Information Button on this page.
