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.

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.

Dying to self is not a good selling point and it is not a popular teaching in our churches. However dying to self is very relevant in our christian walk with others and our relationship to the father. When we die to ourselves in our relationship with others, we are counting someone else better and this is so relevant in our marriages. Jesus teachings is a reflection of what dying to self looks like. With our relationship with the Father, dying to self reflects our faith in his authority. Dying to self is more about giving instead of getting so when we make a relationship about what I can get instead about what I can give, that relationship is already doomed, no matter who it is. Dying to self requires the gospel of Christ. It is only with the gospel that by dying to self we can be made new. Each 7 chapters reflect that from death to 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 red is the new white.

From death to new life removes self and replaces it with God and by removing self,we have true contentment.

From down to the new up is when I come to the end of me and all I have is God. When all is stripped away, you have nothing to cling to and redemption becomes that much sweeter.

When less is the new more I have more self-control instead of being out of control. When having less becomes a practice, my wants don't become needs that rule me. More is always in competition with God and with others which always leads to resentment, fear and envy.

When weak is the new strong, I have surrendered to the character of God. My weakness becomes God's strength proved in my life. Waiting becomes a virtue.
