The New York Times #1 bestselling book by Pastor Rick Warren that helps you understand the purpose of your life. As one of the best-selling nonfiction books in history, with more than 34 million copies sold, and more than 70 translations available, The Purpose Driven Life is far more than just a book; it's the roadmap for your spiritual journey. A journey that will transform your life.

"Movie stars and political leaders aren't the only ones turning to Rick Warren for spiritual guidance. Millions of people - from NBA and LPGA players to corporate executives to high school students to prison inmates - meet regularly to discuss The Purpose Driven Life.


In The Purpose Driven Life you'll find the answers to three of life's most important questions:

  • The Question of Existence: Why am I alive?
  • The Question of Significance: Does my life matter?
  • The Question of Purpose: What on earth am I here for?

Living out the purpose you were created for moves you beyond survival or success to a life of significance - the life you were meant to live.

You will discover the five benefits of knowing your purpose:

  1. It will explain the meaning of your life.
  2. It will simplify your life.
  3. It will focus your life.
  4. It will increase your motivation.
  5. It will prepare you for eternity.

The Purpose Driven Life is designed to be read in 42 short chapters that will inspire you to stop and realize how God uniquely designed you for a purpose only you can fulfill. It also includes links to 3-minute video introductions to each chapter and a 30 to 40-minute audio Bible study message for each chapter. There are also appendixes including questions for further study and additional resources.

Before you were born, God already planned your life. God longs for you to discover the life he created you to live - here on earth, and forever in eternity. Let The Purpose Driven Life show you how.

The Purpose Driven Life is available in audio book, ebook, softcover, and hardcover editions. Also available: The Purpose Driven Life video study and study guide, journal, devotional, book for kids, book for churches, Spanish edition, Large Print edition, and more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! So far, I am enjoying my journey. This is helpful for those trying to gain or regain their connection with God, or with their spiritual being. This book definitely helped me think about everything in my life in a different perspective. As someone who is religious in my own ways, I had difficulties trying to really connect with God on a level that I had been seeking and missing in my life. This helped immensely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great read! A great book to put life in prospective. Would recommend to people who are looking for a book that they can read slowly and occasionally (with a busy work/life schedule) as this book may allow you to find balance in your life.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Here's the deal... This book was very gimmick-y, encouraging readers to buy additional books from the author/products relating to the books (which was quite annoying). That being said, some of the lessons from this book have stuck with me and offered an interesting perspective on being a Christian. #plumreview

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Student Did not like select scripture quote to make his point, should use all of scripture, and did not like repeated references to Rick and Saddleback. God is the source, not Rick Warren.
