Book: The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren

“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.
