“It’s not about you”
That is the first line on the first page of the first chapter. Pastor Warren, you have my attention. The second sentence:
“The purpose of your life is far greater than your own personal fulfillment, your peace of mind, or even your happiness.”
Rick Warren is a gifted communicator. Each chapter starts with a short sentence that succinctly communicates the message of the chapter.
This is a Christian book, written from the perspective of a pastor, with structure from the bible. I will offer that even for those who are not Christian or religious, this book will open a spiritual perspective to the purpose of life.
I read this about 2004. I have revisited it a couple of times since.
