Fellowship with His Family Church To grow like Christ in Character To Serve To be on mission with God in the world, this Great CommissionI loved that it was broken down in an easy to follow way I have been listening to Rick Warren for over 5 years, I start my day listening to his Daily Hope podcast so it was great reading this If you are wondering about your purpose, if you are searching for reason, if you want to know why you are on earth, I highly recommend reading this book Review on April 24th, 2019 This is my fourth time reading this book I generally read this book during Easter because of the 40 chapters and 40 days during Lent It is a great reminder on how to find purpose in life How to make your life not about you and create some form of impact Review on March 30th 2018 This is my third time reading this book I usually read this book at the start of the year or at the start of lent I think reading a book one chapter a day for forty days requires not only dedication but it forces you to be in the Word of God Everyone wants to know their purpose why am I here on earth What is my purpose These are questions that plague me sometimes when I feel so purposeless I love how easy this book is to read, how we are given various call to actions and questions to ponder on You get from this book what you take Rick Warren doesn t promise you purpose after this book, you need to really work and seek it A great read one of my favorites Simply put.there is no worldly method to achieving a closer walk with God It will take time reading God s Word and praying There is no short cut to spirituality The Purpose Driven Life and other similar series attempt to provide a short cut and may encourage new believers to think that once they have achieved the twelve steps they

and may encourage new believers to think that once they have achieved the twelve steps they can cease striving after God I gave up on this book half way through and threw it away as I felt as if it was a deception I have since read many concerning things about the author and his links with ecumenism and new age.I m not surprised this book was and is a best seller as it provides an easy Christianity and broad is the road that leads to destruction.I am concerned that some churches are abandoning Bibles for their studies and studying this book instead Any book that causes people to take their eyes off God and onto a man made method is a danger Challies expresses my concerns clearly in this posthttp www.challies.com articles rickI don t recommend this book At its best, this book is filled with porous theology that is modestly helpful to someone who has no knowledge of Christianity whatsoever At its worst, Warren mangles scripture to fit his own agenda 40 days to find purpose in your life and promotes personal experience over the truth found in scripture.This book is symptomatic of feel good consumerized Christianity so prevalent in America today Finding your purpose in life takes far longer than 40 days and it cannot be easily summarized besi At its best, this book is filled with porous theology that is modestly helpful to someone who has no knowledge of

is symptomatic of feel good consumerized Christianity so prevalent in America today Finding your purpose in life takes far longer than 40 days and it cannot be easily summarized besides the obvious to love and worship God The Purpose Driven Life offers nothing new and while not quite heretical, it is very unsound and I cannot recommend this book to anyone The fact that Warren makes references to the other Purpose Driven branded items in his book that one can purchase pretty much sums it up.I was given a free copy of this book by a friend at my church a few years ago I finished reading the book simply to say that I had read it in its entirety If you want good, thoughtful Christian writers, check out Links for the lazy J.I Packer Knowing God Augustine of Hippo Confessions translated by F.J Sheed, City of God C.S Lewis Mere Christianity The Screwtape Letters The Problem of Pain G.K Chesterson Orthodoxy The Everlasting Man John Piper Ravi Zacharias A.W Pink A.W Tozer no relations haha I spent way too much time on this Hope it helps It s not about you Changed my life.I took Warren s challenge and found that I was not where I should have been Paradoxically, I was at that time employed by a Christian ministry highly regarded by many and vilified by some , but I knew I knew that wasn t where I was supposed to be So, I quit my job and sought a new direction Not there yet by a long shot, but thanks to Rick Warren I m on my way.
