Publisher's Summary

"In the years I have been a pastor," writes Rick Warren, "the number-one question I'm asked is, 'Rick, why can't I change?'" People want to change - but they're stuck. Here's how to get unstuck.

Drawing simple but powerful truths from the Bible, this book gives you practical guidance for specific types of change, and it links you up with the power to actually make the changes you long to make.

This is no pie-in-the-sky theory. It's what redemption is about, and it's founded on the resurrection power of Jesus himself. Power that cancels your past and sets you free to get on with life. Power to conquer your problems. Power to change. The first two chapters help you lay the foundations for change. Then, taking you inside the Scriptures, Rick Warren guides you step-by-step through 10 different areas.

Do you want to:

  • become a more joyful person?
  • cultivate a peaceful life in this uptight world?
  • be a kinder, more gracious individual?
  • replace self-indulgence with self-control?
  • experience what the truly "good life" is all about?

You can! All of the above and more are covered in plain, straightforward language. As you apply the truth of God's word by the power of his spirit, your life will change. You'll move out of your rut - and get on track with God's wonderful purposes for your life.

Should be read by any faithful Christian

When your life is going through difficult times, many things don't make sense at all. The Holy Spirit through Rick can make things more clear in this book. It was a great help to me. Highly recommended.

Not what I thought, but a good read

I expected the book to focus more on how exactly to tie the nine fruits to a plan of change, but it didn't. There is a lot of recycled material from Warren's other books- he needs some fresh examples! But he does have a way of packaging things in a format people can grasp and remember. I would have liked for Rick Warren himself to narrate, but the one selected did a good job and he grew on me as the book went on. Overall, some more good food for thought for baby Christians.

Needed something and it delivered

Would you listen to God's Power to Change Your Life again? Why?

I have used some of Rick's sayings and will probably check over and over to use more. I just made buttons for a weekend retreat. "He was hung up for our hang ups"

What was one of the most memorable moments of God's Power to Change Your Life?

Each time I hear one of snippets that I can use later.

Which character – as performed by Jay Charles – was your favorite?

A little bit of myself in every problem he discusses.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Could have but, probably would have missed choice tidbits.

Any additional comments?

A good manual for getting through problems.

Never ceases to amaze me

Pastor Rick Warren’s books ,are half of the way. The other half depends on you.
They are profound, full of wisdom.
His dedication to helping in spiritual emotional mental matters are life changing,
Highly recommended if you are seeking lasting changes .
They are not quick fix books.
👍

I enjoyed this book

I appreciated the sound biblical approach in his message... not opposed to tithing by any means but I'm not sure I find his expressed approach found in the newness of Christ.. still very grateful for the shared message!!! Hope to walk with more awareness!! Blessings!!
