The New Testament defines Christians very differently. Piper defines new birth biblically and helps us to embrace the reality of it: "I hope that showing that the new birth is not in our control helps make pastors and other Christians desperate for the supernatural in their ministries."
Great book for new believers yearning to understand what has happened to them. John Piper is very clear and makes the new birth in Jesus Christ easy to understand.
What did you love best about Finally Alive?
I lost my Christian mentor, my sister, & then my best friend over a period of 6 months. I was struggling with wanting to slow my pace of life vs. continuing an aggressive ministry I've been blessed with being part of for 8 years. God spoke, "It's time to live, not die." The book does not deal specifically with death impact; that's just what I was struggling with. The book deals specifically with the work, the Power & the Presence of Christ in me. There's no death in Christ; there's only life in Christ. Live!!!

I found myself reluctant to listen to it at first
And I discredited half way through it but final few words shook me to the core
And all made perfect sense
I love this book and highly recommend it to anyone.
(I didn't find this book this book is found me)
