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.
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
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.
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.

I know the author and many others take the Bible at face value. I would have liked a chapter that explained why the bible should be believable.
Everything was supported by quotes from different bibles. Why is there more than one? Why wasn't God clear? Is God a poor communicator?
He assumed I believed the words in multiple bibles.
Content and the fact that the author is presenting the book himself.

"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.
