It's premise is to live as if you only have one month left to live. What would you change? How would you live differently? Or would you?
Our lives are truly a vapor as the Bible tells us. No one knows for sure if this really is their last 30 days or not.....so why not live like it may be? This is actually something that God would have us do. Psalm 90:12 states: "Teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom."
Kerry & Chris Shook come from a perspective of watching people live their last days. They have ministered to many in the final stages of death and have seen various reactions. This led them to challenge their staff to live the next 30 days as if it were their last and to journal what happened. That challenge led to this book.
The book is divided into 4 principles:
- Live Passionately
- Love Completely
- Learn Humbly
- Leave Boldly
The writing style is personal and friendly. This is not a "you'd better do it this way" book. I have found it to be encouraging, yet challenging.
