Another Landmark Book by Rick Warren
You are not an accident. Even before the universe was created, God had you in mind, and he planned you for his purposes. These purposes will extend far beyond the few years you will spend on earth. You were made to last forever!
Self-help books often suggest that you try to discover the meaning and purpose of your life by looking within yourself, but Rick Warren says that is the wrong place to start. You must begin with God, your Creator, and his reasons for creating you. You were made by God and for God, and until you understand that, life will never make sense.
This book will help you understand why you are alive and Gods amazing plan for youboth here and now, and for eternity. Rick Warren will guide you through a personal 40-day spiritual journey that will transform your answer to lifes most important question: What on earth am I here for? Knowing Gods purpose for creating you will reduce your stress, focus your energy, simplify your decisions, give meaning to your life, and, most importantly, prepare you for eternity.
The Purpose-Driven Life is a blueprint for Christian living in the 21st centurya lifestyle based on Gods eternal purposes, not cultural values. Using over 1,200 scriptural quotes and references, it challenges the conventional definitions of worship, fellowship, discipleship, ministry, and evangelism. In the tradition of Oswald Chambers, Rick Warren offers distilled wisdom on the essence of what life is all about.
This is a book of hope and challenge that you will read and re-read, and it will be a classic treasured by generations to come.

This book helped me to refocus on what what is most important in serving God. After a failed stint in ministry, I was suspicious of Christian people telling me what to do or what to be, but Rick Warren avoids the temptation to pigeonhole people and instead encourages them to listen to the desires and dreams God has placed in their hearts, and to look at whom God has made them to be. For me, this was transformative: I began formulating a vision which has grown over time and has always been in line with my God-given passions rather than any kind of formula, tradition or other people's ideas. For a while, the fun had gone out of my Christian life, but what has followed my reading of this book has been exciting, fulfilling and thrilling!
In short, this book has gone a long way towards restoring me, and helped me to discover God's plan for my life. If you have had enough of being a pew-warmer or are trying to get to grips with God's plan for you, this book will help no end!
This book has truly adjusted my direction in my walk with the Lord. For years I've been asking the question "What is God's purpose for me" I've found the answer. Hallelujah .
Since reading this book I've given myself to the Lord and am now a child of God.
I'm truly gratefully to the woman I met in the nail bar who gave me a copy of your book.
Thank be to God.

Nope not for me. I don't see what all the rave is about. I think Rick needs to get out more and share revelations that are more applicable to everyday people in the world.Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
