If you're not a Christian, and you're interested in spiritual matters, then you'll find this book interesting. It's intelligently written by a man who's thought deeply about his subject and who writes well and in a way that can be understood by anyone. It's full of ideas that will educate, provoke and challenge you - even if you don't agree with them all.

If you're already a Christian then this book is like manna from heaven. It explains what our relationship with God is (He loves us and He has amazing plans for us if we're willing to receive His gifts and follow him); why we're here on Earth (to serve Him and to follow Christ's teachings) and how we can make ourselves fit to live in His Kingdom when we die and depart this life (by striving to develop the character of Jesus Christ by modelling our character on His, i.e. not by following worldly goals or by being self-serving).

Following this way of living is a huge challenge. But, if you believe in God and the reality of the afterlife (Heaven & Hell) then there can be nothing more rewarding.

Rick Warren has turned the complex and multi-faceted Holy Bible into a simple "how to" manual for living a God-centred life. It's an amazing book that, if you're willing to take on board the lessons, WILL lead you to living a truly worthwhile life. That doesn't mean it's a worthwhile life by worldly standards, which is so much focused on material gain and "winning" over your fellow humans, but a worthwhile life by God's standards which means you get to live a joy-filled and meaningful existence for eternity, not just your 3-score and 10 allocation in this world. That doesn't mean life will be easy (it may be far from easy) but it will be worthwhile because you'll be ready to receive the amazing inheritance he's planned for us in Heaven.

Being a Vicar's daughter who has struggled with the Christian faith and religion all my life, I bought this in the vain but doubtful hope it might assist with my confusion. You need to get through the first couple of chapters which reference the word "purpose" all the time but provide no answers, and then in the third or fourth chapter, it hits you between the eyes and from then on in, each chapter is a new revelation! The language to begin with is pretty evangelical and if you're not used to it, I imagine it can be off-putting. I simply ignored it and carried on. You also need to just accept some of the principles and keep going. I tend to question everything and, although there may be elements with which I do not agree, I've learned that I need just proceed and understand the breadth of the message rather than getting caught up in the detail. This book is aboslutely fantastic and I'll be buying it for my family for Christmas. After 34 years, I've finally got the answers I need and feel on top of the world :)

this seems a summary of received wisdom from most religions. However, I found the 'them and us' eg 'we are the saved and the others are damned ' outlook limiting and off putting

This book strikes me as a little confused. It has the idea that God controls everything when he doesn't as we have choice. It's who so ever will, not, I will make it happen whether we believe or not. It's a little Old Testament law based in parts and seems to overlook the message of grace. If this is not what Rick Warren was trying to convey more thought about the language used should have been considered.

It's a great daily reader, with the authors welcomed personal touch and daily points of reflection. It's worth noting whilst a pretty good book it should ideally accompany reading the Bible.
