I read this book after my freshman year in college. In which I deleted all social media and stopped carriages about the large amount of “followers”. In fellowship with God it felt so good to let go and grow, not only did I finish the print version of this book, but I donated it to the local nursing home. It definitely provided a piece of the puzzle to reflect during my freshman year, so thankful that God placed this art from the author across my path.55
This book explains that God had us in his mind before we were in the womb. That our life here on earth is not our home; eternity in heaven is! It is so comforting in knowing that! :)55
I have read this book for the third time in my life and at different stages. It teaches me new things and reminds me off many other things I perhaps stopped doing. I encourage everyone I know to read this book with an open mind open heart and sit with it. Let God translate what it means for you and your life.55
My wife and I were given this New York Times Bestseller several years ago, and I read it a couple of times. The book is designed to be read over a course of 40 days, which I did in my first reading, but in my second reading, I completed it in a few days. The Purpose Driven Life answers life's most important question: What on earth am I here for? If you don't know the answer, reading Warren's book will provide you the answer in a way that is easy to understand. Even if you are a Christian, this book provides some wise counsel that can help you live life for the glory of God. Unfortunately, there are some major elements lacking in this book. Vital doctrines that are missing include man's sinfulness and our need for a Savior, the substitute sacrifice of the sinless Christ who bore our sin on the cross. For a serious critique of Rick Warren's Purpose Drive Life (from a reformed perspective), I highly recommend visiting Tim Challies' blog.25
A must read for Everyone.55
Rick Warren really wrote a wonder book that not only helps but is Christ centered. This book has changed my life and gave me what I needed to live for God. I have a purpose while on this earth with more faith than ever before.55
Easy to read and digest, a must read for Christ followers.55
From the beginning of reading, "The Purpose Driven Life," I have felt a glorious peace fill my spirit. It was as if my spirit was dry and withered and the words that Rick wrote poured God's life-giving water over me until I was quenched and alive once more. Thank you, Rick, for writing God's truths in ways that almost seemed brand-new to me, reminding me in fresh new ways of God's wisdom and grace for me. I am so grateful to have finally submerged myself into this life-changing book and am eager to adopt as many principles as I am able into my life. As well as continue on my journey of living my life to please God. Thank you for providing personal support and continued teachings for us to follow.55
This book is a call to Christian living that makes your purpose on earth very clear. I was moved by this to be more Christ focused and stop living a selfish life. This was the best study I have ever done.55
