Praise for One Month to Live
“So many of us waste our lives with ‘when and then’ thinking, believing that ‘when’ this or that happens, ‘then’ we will really start living and do something for God that really matters. That approach is guaranteed to leave you with regrets. At the end of your life, the only thing that will matter is whether you accomplished God’s purpose for your life. Jesus was just 12 when he said, ‘I must be about My Father’s business.’ Barely 20 years later, he could say to the Father, ‘I have completed the work you gave me to do.’ If we all had that kind of focus and concentration in our lives, there’s no telling what God could accomplish in the world! Kerry and Chris Shook want you to grasp that amazing insight: Embracing your mortality sets you free to live a meaningful and significant life without regret. One Month to Live is a great way to discover the purposeful, joyful, abundant life God created you to enjoy!”
–Rick Warren, founding pastor, Saddleback Church, and author of international bestseller, The Purpose Driven Life
“Kerry and Chris Shook are world-class leaders whose lives and ministry have impacted untold numbers of people, including me. Regardless of where you are on your spiritual journey, One Month to Live will challenge you to passionately live the life you were made for and leave an eternal legacy.”
–Bill Hybels, Founding Pastor, Willowcreek Church and bestselling author of Too Busy Not to Pray
“Kerry Shook is a friend, devoted father, supportive husband, and inspiring pastor. As one of today’s most gifted communicators, Kerry’s unique and creative style enables him to take the most complex issues and make them practical and relevant to daily living. He has a genuine love for people that is contagious. His ministry is changing the lives of individuals and families here in Houston and transforming communities all across the nation.”
–Joel Osteen, pastor of Lakewood Church and bestselling author of Your Best Life Now
“If you want new urgency, fresh purpose, and a sharper focus for your life, then this book is for you. Read it and your future may be changed forever!”
–Lee Strobel, author of The Case for the Real Jesus

The authors challenge you -- literally -- to make the most of it, to open your eyes and live each day with enthusiasm and meaning. The first page has a contract to sign called "The One-Month-To-Live Challenge" which states "I commit with God's strength to live the next thirty days as if they are my last so I can experience life to the full!" There is a spot for your signature and a spot for a friend to sign as a witness.
The rest of the book serves as a day-by-day manual for your monthlong conversion. There's a chapter for each day. Each one opens with two inspiring quotes (from people as varied as Helen Keller, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Maya Angelou) and includes questions to help you examine your life from a particular perspective. At the end of each chapter are three ways to act on the topic, for example making a list of five things you'd change about your life if you only had a month to live, or going outside and looking at the stars.
Though "One Month to Live" is filled with Biblical verses and stories, its message, and approach, can easily work for those of any faith. Living life to the fullest: What a terrific goal! As George Eliot wrote, in a quote from chapter 8: "It is never too late to be what you might have been."

God to use you. I do listen to your broadcast also.
Thirty days, had one week after Easter in 2010. One month to live puts you in driver seat. Its get you to thinking I have been living wrong all alone, so let me get it right. At each ending of a chapter it tell you to "Make It Last For Life" this is my part to make it count. And at the beginning it gives you famous words by famous people. And "Make It Count Moment" my driver seat because it ask questions of When, Why, I didn't do. Its a good book. I sometimes gives my books away when I'm finish with them but, this one I am keeping for awhile.
