Format: Paperback
In this short book Hayley and Michael DiMarco offer seven chapters that cover seven paradoxes of the Christian life. Each chapter contains Bible verses, practical principles based on those verses, and short sidebars by both husband and wife as to how these principles have impacted their personal lives. This is essentially a handbook focusing on how Christianity teaches the opposite of what your flesh desires - which ironically leads to death - and how dying to self and living for Christ leads to an abundant life. Therefore, the younger you die the longer you will live. They carefully weave a model of robust Christ-like discipleship and articulate the importance of the gospel, justification by faith alone, and sanctification based on Christ alone. However, they also show that our faith does "work" itself out in the way Christ changes us from the inside out as we die to self and live for Him.

The seven chapters include these paradoxes:

1) "Death is the New Life" deals with what it means to die to self, learn contentment, and how suffering can be a very positive outworking of God's working in our life. It also tackles what it means to be holy, and live a life of faith, hope, peace and love. One of the questions for reflection in this chapter was very thought provoking: "Will suffering destroy your hope and your faith, leaving you with nothing solid to stand on, alone and empty, or will your suffering destroy the parts of you that tie you to the things of this earth and keep your focus off the God of heaven?"

Some other gems from this chapter include:

"There is no fruit that grows from a seed that refuses to die.

I really was challenged by the book Die Young: Burying Your Self In Christ by Michael & Hayley Dimarco from Crossway Publishers. In this book the Dimarco married duo explain what Paul is saying in Romans 12 regarding a "living sacrifice" that we need to deny ourselves so that we do not serve our own personal desires but instead serve His. What a mindset that is counter cultural. This book helped me realize that even though the authors of sacred Writ lived and taught a Gospel that is almost 2 millennium old it is as much applicable in modernity as ever. The authors illustrate in each chapter paradoxes that dying young enables: Death is the New Life, Down is the New Up, Less is the New More, Weak is the New Strong, Slavery is the New Freedom, Confession is the New Innocence, and finally Red is the New White.

I received an advance copy of this book from Crossway.

Few issues are more important for Christians than understanding who they are in Christ. In a world that continues to entice the Christian to succumb to worldly pleasure recently there have been many books published on the identity of the Christian, and Die Young: Burying Your Self in Christ is one of them. Written by best-selling authors Hayley and Michael Dimarco Die Young is a helpful book that will introduce the Christian to who they are in Christ.

Throughout the book the authors drill deep into the fact that the Gospel turns life upside down by highlighting what results from this: death is the new life; less is the new more; weak is the new strong; slavery is the new freedom. Die Young is written in a warm, engaging pastoral and conversational tone that makes reading this book really easy. This book has seven chapters and only one hundred and sixty three pages.

The only weakness of this book relates to its structure and flow, as throughout the book they have "Here Lies" sections which contain the personal stories of the authors. These personal stories are helpful and instructive but it would have been better if these stories were woven into the material in the book than given separate pages throughout the chapters in the book.

Reading Die Young was helpful for me as it helped me to gain a better understanding of who I am in Christ. Die Young will be helpful to Christian teenagers and adults to understand who they are in Christ and what the life and death of Christ means for those who have given their lives to Him. I recommend reading Die Young by Hayley and Michael Dimarco to be instructed on how a death to self-frees the Christian to live with the fearless love and rock-solid hope that Jesus intends for His people.

Format: Paperback
Big cars, big money, big houses... these are many of the elements of what's considered "success," both outside the Church and (depending on who you talk to) within. We chase after the next promotion and we switch jobs as soon as the old one stops satisfying. We seek happiness in the next toy when the old one isn't nearly as sparkly and bankroll it on a piece of plastic. We've buried ourselves under debt in the pursuit of happiness and have nothing to show for it.

But this is not what life is to be for the Christian. We're not to be pursuing a life of self-exaltation--we are to put our pursuit of these things to death. We are to bury ourselves in Christ. This is the point of Hayley and Michael DiMarco's new book, Die Young. In this book, the DiMarcos take the pursuit of self head-on as they examine the paradoxical world of the Kingdom of God, where death brings life, less means more, weak is strong and slavery to brings freedom.

Die Young is a very fast yet challenging read. The DiMarcos' writing style is casual and punchy--it reads almost like a very excited conversation. This is a bit of a double-edged sword, though, as it means you can wind up breezing past some really solid material if you're not careful. Additionally, peppered throughout the book you'll find "Here lies..." sidebars--personal confessions from the authors admitting their own struggles putting their pursuit of putting "self" to death and how they've dealt with the consequences of their sins in these matters. These candid and vulnerable confessions are really helpful to read, but their placement is really awkward, often breaking up the flow of a chapter.
