To Live Is Christ to Die Is Gain by Matt Chandler

Into the Wild

Read To Live Is Christ to Die Is Gain Online Free - Using Paul's radical letter to the Philippians as his road map, Matt Chandler forsakes the trendy to invite readers into authentic Christian maturity. The short book of Philippians is one of the most quoted in the Bible, yet Paul wrote it not for the popular sound bites, but to paint a picture of a mature Christian faith. While many give their lives to Jesus, few then go on to live a life of truly vibrant faith. In this disruptively inspiring book, Chandler offers tangible ways to develop a faith of pursuing, chasing, knowing, and loving Jesus. Because if we clean up our lives but don't get Jesus, we've lost! So let the goal be Him. To live is Christ, to die is gain—this is the message of the letter. Therefore, our lives should be lived to Him, through Him, for Him, with Him, about Him—everything should be about Jesus.

I love Matt's preaching. I love some of the studies that have come from his messages. This book was just chaotic, though. I had a really hard time tracking the point he was making in any chapter and no chapter really fed into the next. Lots of true stuff and good nuggets, but lost in the chaos.

Analysis I think the best description of this book is that it is like a collection of sermons on the Book of Philippians. Each sermon has been polished into a well-crafted chapter. The quality of Chandler's writing is high. He is a skilled communicator; both spoken and written. The book flows well...

I have been reading this book in conjunction with watching the video series upon which it is based. As a matter of fact, some sentences are word for word the same. Let me just say that as a lesson series this material is really good. Chandler is very engaging and offers up a lot of solid teaching...

There are some books that are fun to read. Because of Chandler's unique and forthright style of writing, I found this book enjoyable and challenging. This book was a balance between a commentary and a book on Christian living. Very helpful. Joy. Humility. Maturity.

It gave me a great insight on St. Paul with the Philippians. It has increased my knowledge of Bible.

Disclaimer: my second favorite book in the Bible is Paul’s letter to the Philippians and my life verse is Phil. 3:8, so I’m predisposed to like the content of this book. Matt Chandler is the pastor of a TX megachurch, and a frequent speaker at national conferences. And with good reason: he’s a gi...

The first half of the book confused me a little, since I thought it would be kind of a commentary to Phillipians. It was kind of chaotic - Chandler didn't work much with the text, talked a lot about not being satisfied with our Christian life and not taking God's grace for granted. The last chapt...

Excellent, excellent book. Chandler goes through the book of Philippians sequentially and pastorally explains how we ought to be driven time and time again back toward Christ in our lives here on earth. One of those books I wished many times I was reading in paperback and not digitally so that I...

I read this book, watched the accompanying DVD and discussed it with a Bible study group. We all agreed that it was one of the most instructive studies we have done. In particular the chapter about rejoicing in the Lord even when life is not at a peak moment was very meaningful.
