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.
I highly recommend this book.
My church has been following this book, and it has encouraged me to come to God, for a long i suffered with depression and often asked, what's the point in all this? i tried to kill myself believing there was NO POINT ... and then i started going to church while they were following this book. through the book i found God and found the meaning of life.
you can take my words as just words, you can believe me and rush to buy it or you can buy this book to try and prove me and others wrong ... but you will see for yourself, it helps guide people to God and the bible. speaks along with the bible to give you your purpose.
The forty chapters are meant to be read in a life-changing forty days; but I would advise taking it slowly - a chapter a week - and really thinking about what God is saying to you through the book.
Be warned this is pretty challenging stuff: very honest and frank and straight to the point with no hanging around. Warren's writing style is captivating and each and every line is full of meaning and provokes thought. He writes very honestly and openly and is not frightened to get right to the heart of every issue.
This book is a real life-changer and God has clearly blessed Rick Warren with tremendous faith, tremendous insight and tremendous ability to write such a book.
But remember, if your looking for a challenging and life-changing read, nothing does it better than The Bible...
