Featured Review

Of all the gifts God gives to us, few are more precious and few are more fleeting than the gift of time. Your days are numbered and you are responsible to faithfully steward each one of them for the good of others and the glory of God. This book will teach and encourage you to make the most of the time God gives you.

Tim Challies, blogger at


Wasting time might not seem like a big deal to some, except for the fact that our time really isn't ours, but God's. Not only that, but it is a limited resource. You can be the richest person in the world and you still can't buy more time.
If we want a heart of wisdom, according to the psalmist, we must number our days. Your Days are Numbered takes a biblical look at the way in which we spend our time to cultivate this mind-set of seeing each day as a vital opportunity to live for the glory of God.

In a culture that spends its days killing time, wasting time, or managing time, John Perritt urges us to become intentional about how we number our days. He does so not from a sense of guilt or manipulation, but from a rich Gospel basis.

Sean Michael Lucas, Senior Pastor, Independent Presbyterian Church, Memphis, Tennessee

... so much wise and godly counsel in this book. He challenged me to consider my priorities so I can love God and love my neighbors with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength. No doubt he'll do the same for you.

Collin Hansen, Editorial Director, The Gospel Coalition and author of "Blind Spots"

... This is essential reading for those concerned with addressing the question, 'How may I glorify God in the legitimate pursuit of leisure?' I heartily recommend it.

Derek Thomas, Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina

They say, "time is money" but Sam Walton has no more hours in his week then you. The question is, "What will you do with your 168?" In Your Days Are Numbered, John Perritt combines good news and biblical principles to show us how to make every hour count for this life-and the life that is [soon] to come.

Bob Bevington, Co-author, 'The Bookends of the Christian Life'

... gets right to the heart of the matter and tells you exactly how you ought to be disciplined with your time. This book is ruthlessly practical. I heartedly recommend it to the disciple who desires to honor the Lord with their days.

Wilson A. Shirley, Senior Pastor, Cornerstone Presbyterian Church, Huntsville, Alabama

... Your Days Are Numbered succeeds in addressing it with simplicity and practicality. If heeded, John Perritt's common sense proposals grounded in scriptural principle will enable us to "redeem the time".

David Strain, Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, Mississippi
