Wow. I am almost at the end of the 40 day "journey" that this book takes you on, and it has changed my life. For the better. It's so damn practical!!! And readable, and just... AMAZING!!! Explains suffering, feeling that God is distant, how to deal with temptation and loneliness, talks about loving other people, etc etc. As the author says over and over again, THIS IS NOT A SELF-HELP BOOK! It is about living selflessly, because you are so sure of God's love for you... oh you'll just have to read it. But I swear that after one of the books chapters, about temptation, I went and told my best friend a lot of stuff that has been bugging me and that I've kept secret for a VERY long time... and I AM SO GLAD. It was just the most liberating thing! Thank you, Rick Warren, and thank you God, for making me unburden my heavy heart! (Is "unburden" a word?)

Great book but wanted to point out there are 2 Kindle versions, one at £0.49 which is much shorter and not split into 40 days, and the full 40 day course at £6.99. It is very confusing as they have the same title and very similar covers. Had to end up buying both!
Can this be clarified for future customers?

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.

I really enjoyed reading The Purpose Driven Life. I read it over a 40 day period as the book suggested. I have been a Christian for more than 25 years and I found that the book phrased things in such a way that it helped clarify things for me. It is inspiring and I would recommend it. Occasionally I did find some of the Bible translations a bit lacking in substance but I can see why Rick has chosen to use them and overall I believe that most of them are a good choice.
I highly recommend this book.

often people look at the bible and find it confusing, they don't let themselves see what is written behind the words. 'the purpose driven life' is a book to help guide you in the right direction, to understand and appriecate the bible, and most importantly, God.
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.

This is an absolute must-read for everyone.
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...
