The Purpose-Driven Life What on Earth Am I Here For Author:Rick Warren The #1 international bestseller! This 40-day spiritual journey will help you understand why you are alive and God’s amazing plan for you both now and for eternity. Winner of the Gold Medallion Book Award and Christian Book of the Year Award.
The author uses obscure translations and paraphrases in order to make the Bible fit his points. He also uses partial verses in order to proof text, even if the actual verse has nothing to do with the point he was trying to make. I was VERY disappointed to realize this after all of the hype about this book in the evangelical world. I guess I'll stick to just reading my Bible!
Currently 0.5/5 Stars.

Must accept Christianity in order to get anything from this book. May help a lot of people, but not me.
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. This book will help you understand why you are alive and God's amazing plan for you. Knowing God's purpose for creating you will reduce stress, focus your energy, simplify your decisions, give meaning to your life, and, most important, prepare you for eternity.
