From the Back Cover

What does it take to…Become more loving? More peacefully? Develop patience? Have self-control? “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. Do you want to get unstuck? Here’s how. 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. 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. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

This is a very good book by Rick Warren. This book is for people who are tired of trying to change their lifes on their own steam. This book is about using the power that God has given us to turn our lives from stressful to peaceful. It is about getting the best quality out of life. It motivates to reader to make the right choices to live the best life they possibly can. I was very motivated after this people and I know very many people who have read it after I gave it to them to read who were inspired to change their lives and who actually did it. They didn't pick up their lives on their own strength though. They learned to rely on Gods strength to lift them up and change them. It is a very good read.

I really enjoyed "The Purpose Driven Life," so I was excited when I found out that our small group would be going through this other Rick Warren book.

I was quite disappointed, though, to find out what the book's content was really like. The general idea of the book is to go through each of the fruit of the spirit, in a practical way. Rick provides a few (4-7) points for each fruit, of practical ways to grow in those areas. So far, so good.

The frustrating part was that I really felt like some manager or publisher told him, "The book isn't long enough, add a lot of padding." Each point has about one paragraph of depth to it, and about 3-6 paragraphs of cheesy cliches and anecdotes.

For our small group, it ended up working out ok, because it provided a starting point, from which we provided our own depth of discussion from our own lives. But the book itself was not one that I would highly recommend, especially after the high quality of Rick Warren's more popular book.

Format: Hardcover
This is by far the best book I read about the fruit of the Holy Spirit. My preference of it certainly comes from my agreement with the author's perspective that no matter how many self help book you read, without God's power to practice, it's all useless. In short, well written and very helpful. Highly recommended even for those who had read tons of spiritual and self help books before.

p.s. Below please find some of my favorite passages for your reference.

Anytime you resent someone, you give that person a piece of your heart, a piece of your attention, a piece of your mind. Do you want that person to take that? No. So take it back by forgiving. pg53
Stop fantasizing about greener grass somewhere else. The truth is that the grass is not on the other side of the fence; the grass is greener wherever you water it! pg62
"Be still, and know that I am God." Ps.46.10 was written during the time of Hezekiah. Israel was under attack of Assyria. Enemy soliders had surrounded Jerusalem, and the Israelites were uptight. They knew they were going to get whooped, so they prayed this prayer. Five minutes before noon, God smote the Assyrians with a plague, and 185,000 of them died. pg90
Wisdom is seeing life from God's point of view, getting God's perspective on a situation. pg108
Many times when someone is experiencing a crisis, ....Actually you dont have to say anything. Just being there is an expression of kindness. Sometimes a touch on the shoulder, a tear, a pat on the back, or a grasp of the hand is all a hurting person needs. pg126
"Why are you so nice to him when he's so unfriendly to you?" "Because I dont want him to decide how I'm going to react." That is gentleness. That is strength under control - choosing the way to respond to people.

If you are expecting the something as revolutionary as a Purpose Driven Life you will be disappointed, but if you are just looking for a good inspiring Christian book you will be pleased. The book is based on the fruits of the Spirit; love, joy, peace, gentleness... He gives a chapter for each of the fruits in which he gives steps to help incorporate each of the fruits in our life, while also clearly explaining that the fruit is a work of the Holy Spirit

This book is like The Secret/law of attraction & a 12 step book rolled up into one. This book is LIFE CHANGING! Do what it says and you will change your life. One thing, along with reading the book and doing what it says I personally believe you truly have to accept Jesus into your heart and give all your troubles to him or it wont work, frankly nothing will work without Jesus, I see that now. I did what the book said to do, go to church, read the bible for 15 minutes a day and pray about EVERYTHING. Even small silly things. Galatians 5:22-23 says But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. I used to be so angry, in just weeks that anger has melted away, God can do amazing work in you. If you have tried everything and are at your wits end then try this, it will be the last book you will need. Follow what this book says, truly give your life to God and you will have these fruits. I have changed SO much since I bought this book. If you want to talk further about this feel free to message me through Yahoo messenger, my name is adidasjanet. God Bless!

I want to start by saying that I'm a big Rick Warren fan and think the garbage he's now taking for being nothing more than "too popular" is unwarranted and hypocritical.

I bought "God's Power to Change Your Life" with the full expectation that I'd get some real insight into the title. Ummmm, nope.

My opinions on this book in a nutshell are:

1 - Seems like a Bartlett's Cliche Book (if there is such a thing) blew up and landed inside this effort

2 - Either Rick "phoned this one in" to meet a publishing deadline while he was in Africa, or someone on his staff wrote it.

3 - The theology here is about a half inch deep

4 - Joel Osteen could have written this book.

On the positive side it was a good review of basic Christian tenants (However, I really don't think we need another reminder that people are born basically bad and not good), very basic, but really left me wanting something with meat in it. I hope his next effort is just that - an effort to reach out to those who want a deeper relationship with God and desire more scriptural and applicable insight into scripture. This one failed to do either.

Sorry, Rick - love you, don't like the book.
