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!

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.

This book is very inspiring and makes you think. I loved the way the chapters were small and you were instructed not to read ahead so you could dwell on what you had just read. I recommend this book to anyone having a difficult time in there life spiritually and emotionally! -stolen from a amazon review

This is excellent source to accompany the book "Purpose Driven Life". Or could be used alone. It directs the Living Word of God to the very heart of a person and challenges us all to some really deep reflection. This could be used as an individual study or with a group.
