Rated 5 out of 5 by from Astonishing! As a devout Christian and recovered alcoholic I was seeking a simple format to link the two worlds together. As my mission is to bring people to Christ, my ministry is AA and my gift being alcoholism, my ministry is filled with people seeking God but in most cases afraid and easily put off. This book is the answer. If I didn't know better I would have thought the authors of the Big Book in AA took their wisdom from A Purpose Driven Life. The Twelve Step Program is designed for people to find the solution. Of course the solution is God through Jesus Christ. The depth and simplicity transmitted in this book has inspired new ways of presenting Jesus in many of our group topics. The book also has empowered me to understand my own individuality and relationship with Jesus; so that I can understand my "shape" and God's Will for my life. I cannot put into words how freeing this book is, except to say I will purchase it as to read it only once is not enough. God Bless and Godspeed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspirational I have read the book, The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren. It is inspirational, practical, as well as insightful. While the book appeals to the physical and emotional aspect of humanity; it looks in-depth at the spiritual condition and essentials for humanity. The writer of this book seems to have an intimate encounter with the creator. The first three sections of this book address some very pertinent issues that continue to plaque our society. The first one is, "what on Earth Am I Here For?" Our society is experiencing turbulence because a lot of people have not been able to honestly answer this question. The author has answered this question in a universal manner which is relevant to all irrespective of creed, race, culture or gender. While the question may be answered universally, the response or attitude of the reader is critical to embrace such thought. The second section of the book is, "You Were Planned For God's Pleasure." While the first section focuses on the existence of man; the second looks at the purpose. I believe that existing without a purpose is a receipt for disaster. Having a purpose is what drives the individual to keep on living. The third aspect is, " You Where Formed For God's Family." A sense of belonging has becomes the theme of this section. This is so vital for human survival. People are created to be loved, to give love, and to feel a part of. When these ingredients are missing, it creates instability to families, groups, organizations, and ultimately impacts society. After reading this book, I would recommend it as a outstanding resource for motivational purpose as well as for discovering one self.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purposefully 4 God I found this book to be extremely helpful in my walk with Christ because it shows you where in the Bible you can find the answers to questions regarding your purpose here on earth. It forces the reader to delve inside yourself, to find out what it is that is hindering you from taking up the cross and walking with Jesus, and it offers a few helpful suggestions as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THIS BOOK WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE The Purpose Driven Life will help you understand why you are alive and reveal God's amazing plan for us - both here and now, and for eternity. Knowing God's purpose for us will reduce our stress, focus our energy, and simplify decisions, giving meaning to our lives, and most important, prepare us for eternity. Thousands of people do not even know what their purpose is. This book has helped many people through the darkest of times, and it is a book that should remain at your bedside table for continual reference. I witnessed the story behind it on the Larry King show and it has changed many lives. I gave this book to many as gifts and I believe that Rick Warren has been directed by God to have written this book for the benefit of the human race.
