    Saddleback Church pastor Rick Warren pens this forty-day devotional designed to introduce the five purposes of your life: worship God, fellowship with other believers, become more like Jesus, serve others in the church, and share the gospel with others.My church used this years ago for a church-wide campaign of reading it together and having several sermons in a row tied into it. I couldn't remember if I'd only read parts of it or the whole thing, and all I really remembered was that his narrative voice was far too excited for my taste and that he quoted from the Message a lot. Well, that's still fairly true (though he quotes from a lot of different versions and the Message was just one of them), but I actually enjoyed reading and found a lot of his points personally challenging and applicable. What he has to say isn't groundbreaking, but is Biblically sound and solid, and a good reminder for anyone whether just starting on their faith journey or following Christ for awhile, on what it means to live out a Christian life.

    I'm astonished at how hard it is to find much else written about whether humans have a purpose in life-and what that might be-and what it's orgination is. I am delighted to see the popularity of this Warren book (345 as I write this), and I encourage every member to consider the subtitle (What on Earth Am I Here For) and read Warren's answer if you haven't found another answer you think is more valid and truthful. This would be a great discussion topic for an LT group, I'll go look for one now and hope other members will join me (Seeking Purpose).

    I bought this in a thrift store...no entries. Somebody didn't use it.However, there are about 3 pages per date for writing and good questions posed to prompt your thought.

    If you don't know who you are then this is the book for you; if you want more answers about God this is the book for you; if you want to care about others then this book is for you; this book is for you.............

    A 40 day devotional guide to getting your life on track for God through 5 key purposes. The content is good and biblically sound, but there's a temptation to think that if you follow these steps your life will be sorted. God doesn't promise Christians an easy life, and often we need to face hardships to fulfil those purposes. I thought a little more emphasis on the hard times would be helpful. That said, it's still a great book, filled with quotes from scripture.This is definitely a book for Christians, If you're not a Christian, or not sure, why not start with his booklet "What on earth am I here for?".

    I found this a fantastic book. It is well worth anyone undertaking to read and reflect upon and is very good for group study and discussion. For those open to it, it leads to life changes.

    I would suggest that if you are serious about finding your true purpose, that you commit to the forty days to work through this book. its not one to simply read and is more like a journey.about half way i was quite exhausted with it, but i persevered and somehow arrived at a very clear mission and purpose by the end, together with my "voice" and task for the year. it quite amazed me.

    This is a brilliant book. The thing that stood out for me was in the opening paragraph ~ "it's not all about me". This is a life changing book that answers so many questions about life and what on earth am I here for.

    A good read. Inspiring in places.
  • (5/5)
    A look through the different facets of our Christian life. A practical answer to 'What on earth am I here for?'
  • (5/5)
    This book helped me to understand my relationship with God; all that He wants for me & who I am. It requires quite a bit of reflection and is tremendously helpful in moving you to another dimension in God.

    This was a wonderful devotion that my sister and I did together. I definitely recommend this devotion and only read one chapter a day. Also, do the devotion with someone because it's great to bounce thoughts off one another. It really makes you sit and re-evaluate your life, your commitments, and your priorities. But no, it won't tell you what career path to choose.

    Absolute must for every serious Christian seeking to find the fullest potential in life, walking with God.

    This book DID change my life!! Wonderful. Absolutely amazing!
  • (3/5)
    Interesting, but IMO very overrated. About 1/4 reads like a promotion for his church (or at least how he runs his church). The rest has tidbits here and there, but nothing that I found earthshattering, and I think my wife stopped reading 3/4 of the way through.

    Starts out pretty good....but then gets a little "too worldly" in ideas/thoughts. Not sure it's so Biblically based! (sounds like it is tho...)
  • (3/5)
    I learned a lot. Make sure you take it one day at a time. It's not about the content, it's about the reflection.

    I received this book as a gift - otherwise I probably wouldn't have read it. I don't read a lot of nonfiction, and when I do it is not usually self-help or inspirational nonfiction. The Purpose Driven Life is meant to be read slowly over 40 days - one chapter a day. My husband and I read it together and discussed it; and in this regard it was a good experience.As a Christian, I believe that Christ is our savior and died for our sins. I believe in the power of prayer. I believe there are ways to live our lives which make us better people and give our lives purpose. In many ways, this is what Rick Warren writes about - the problem with the book is twofold:1. Warren repeats everything again and again and again. At some points, I wanted to scream "Okay, I get it!" Some of the information is so basic I felt Warren was talking down to the reader.2. Warren presents an exceptionally narrow way of viewing the world which I felt was not inclusive enough. He made me feel that if I didn't subscribe to his interpretation of God's word, than I was not the 'right kind of Christian.' I've always hated that view - it makes me uncomfortable and it doesn't feel correct to me. I didn't appreciate the subtle judgment against other faiths which was woven into the textOn the up side, Warren presents information clearly, concisely and gives the reader a series of questions and meditations to strengthen his points. The book is well organized.I'm afraid I can't recommend this book to a lot of people - even some Christians (like myself) may feel the book talks down to them and doesn't resonate fully with their beliefs. If you are a person who loves inspirational and religious philosophy, you may want to give it a try.

    Shallow and callow look at man from man's own view point.He can sell a lot of books but cannot understand the Book.A modern American tragedy that will have eternal consequences for millions of misled souls.

    Worst book ever. This thing is a joke. Had to read it as a TEXTBOOK for a class. My University shall remain nameless. Laughable.
  • (3/5)
    For as much as I want to hate it 'cause of it's popularity and all that, it has served a good purpose and has a good message.
