The preaches are very nicely achived, and very well founded. The narrative and the passion of Rick is contagious. But I didn't like that at certain point of the book, little by little, it hints that the purpose of everyone's life is to live in the church, by the church and for the church. The book doesn't show a way to find your purpose, it tries to convince you that everyone 's purpose is the church.
The book inspires to take action and fix several flaws you may have in your path for a more spiritual christian life.
I've enjoyed listening to this book because while it is intended to be read/listened to in 40 days, it's easy to pick back up if you break the pattern. Rick Warren does a good job of explaining his ideas with analogies and short sayings that are easy to remember.
Love facts..hate drivel. Want cutting edge resesrch that is relevant to my daily life - what effects me - you - us. No "50 Shades" for me.
Yes, if they are Christian. I love the author and his style. I listen to his podcasts regularly. he makes Christianity, well, not so "offensive" as I remember it from childhood. He makes it OK and understandable. Now, if I could just get past my doubts I have about the translation of the Bible.
And, if they would remove the commercials in between the chapters read by the lady with the sickening voice, it would be far better!
Yes. I like his style. He is down to earth and humorous.
His delivery is pretty darn awesome. He sounds like the kind of guy you's want to have a beer with - to be your neighbor - to be your friend.
No - it is not a story.
LOSE THE DARN COMMERCIALS IN BETWEEN THE CHAPTERS! The sappy voice of the lady that reads these makes me want to vomit.
this book puts in prospective what life is all about and how we should live with a purpose. When our Savior returns for us we will surely be prepared if we live life on purpose.
It is practical and easy to apply in my life.
The 7 habit's but more down to earth.
It was very emotional. I changed the way i think.
Please read this book.
NOFor me the wording and references were too Religious. It was heavy on Bible and Jesus quotes. I respect all religions. I am very spiritual but not religious. It was too difficult to get past the religious tone to hear the message.
I LOVED his interview with Oprah Winfrey. He kept it to a level open to people of all faiths. I was quite disappointed when I started listening to the book.
It was well presented .... music a bit "hokey" and sentimental
I LOVE the idea of a purpose driven life and that is my goal in my life. I have great love and appreciation for Rick Warren in the work he does. It would be of great value to present it in a form that would be accepted by a wider scope of people if he just remove the religious references.....but he IS a Preacher (Minister).Thank you!Peace
Great read on living with purpose. The author shares the beautiful balance between playing your role in the big picture and discovering and developing your unique S.H.A.P.E.
Yes yes yes !!! I highly recommend this book to EVERYONE. I pray this book be required reading in middle schools and should be addendum to bibles at time of purchase. I've read and re-read this book 3 times and will read again.
"Up and Down"
On the down-side this book sounds like a very long-winded sermon. It's very black and white and Rick often states opinion as fact...which he tries so very hard to justify by continually saying 'the bible says...' and in all honesty there were a fair few times when I felt instead like throwing the bible squarely back at Rick. In a nutshell, when Rick is on form he is undeniably correct and you wil find yourself at the very least actively nodding in agreement.On the other side, Rick can be infuriating to listen to. When he's right he's spot on...otherwide he's totally off the mark. There's no inbetween or grey. For example Rick states that we are 'slaves to God'..on number of occasions his use of language frustrated and even offended. Three stars though because there is a lot of good in this book....best taken in small doses.
Thank you for such an eye opening book. It really helps understand what we are on earth for.
I recommend this book to all.
Less god and more practical advice
It's not a charater driven story with a narative.
Unless you count God as a 1 dimenstional character
The advice was nonsense delivered by sad sound voices. Intercut with sad music every 5-10 which sounds like the sad hulk music
Depressing, disappointing , I have subscribed to a book a month since 2007 and this is the only book I didn't want to finish. I wish I could have had that months credit refunded.
I would recommend seth godin , malcolm gladwell, psycho-cybernetics or the power of habbit over this tripe
