Pastor Warren’s adult book The Purpose Driven Life (2002) has been translated into 50 languages. This volume, aimed at young people, uses a day-by-day devotional format to engage readers in thinking about God, prayer, and the Bible. The book is divided into six “purposes”: The Reason for Everything; Faith and Friendship with God; Your Part in God’s Family; Becoming like Christ; Serving God, Serving Others; You Were Made for a Mission. Within each section, Warren focuses on a biblical passage from the Old and New Testaments and offers both a kid-friendly discussion and a brief prayer that encapsulates the message. Most of the discussions make the passages relevant to young people, though some feel forced, as when analysis of a passage in Genesis in which Sarai’s name is changed to Sarah attests she was originally known only as Abraham’s wife, and then suggests readers ask their parents how they were named or contemplate God’s name for them. Still, kids will make their own connections, and the decorative format makes the book quite manageable for young readers. --- Ilene Cooper (Booklist)

First I'd like to say that I am a lover of daily books. Anything that is uplifting, clear and meaningful that can help me increase my knowledge of the living word is something that I will instantly pick up and start reading the first entry.
Life has been trial after trial after trial for me and my family as well. Once one thing fits in place the other falls apart. I find myself constantly questioning everything and wishing that things could just change. When I saw this book on the book sneeze website I knew I had to give it a go. Because that should be our focus what does God want our lives to turn out to be. He is the one who put all the work and effort into creating us. Surely there is more to it than just building a world and it just goes from year to year. He did it for a reason and we are here to find out what that is and figure out what we need to do next.
After reading these entries, The Purpose Driven Life. Has opened my eyes to see that God created us out of LOVE to share his LOVE and for us to share his LOVE....Growing up I honestly thought that he was a big guy up in the sky who just made us to play with... Like when we were kids and had our blocks and dolls and toys etc. I didn't feel like I was loved our wanted... And now as I come to realize that he does care and what the best for me. That I am loved and wanted. Now as I open my Bible everyday the scriptures become clearer and the Holy Spirit gives me understanding so I can learn. And I'm finally learning! I have wanted to learn from the word for so long it was so frustrating when I didn't get it. When I went to church and just sat there like a zombie watching the clock go by because I didn't feel like I belonged. That God didn't care and now that I know he does it has helped me grow a lot closer to him and now I can't set my Bible down. It is the best feeling ever. This book is an eye opener and I encourage every one of you to give it a try.
The guy who wrote this is extremely hypocritical and focussed on himself. He preaches about not being a self-help person who says to listen to him and only him. Yet, he is totallyyyyy a person who is saying that his opinions and beliefs are the only ones to believe. I am shocked and saddened to see all of the positive reviews. I had hoped that more people could have been able to see the hypocrisy and even greedy selfish mentality that this was coming from. Wow, this was a terrible, very close-minded, narrow view of a read. ...Very very sad and disappointing to see that otherwise intelligent people would not be able to see through the judgmental dogmatic self-centered tone of this entire thing.
How can one person say that he wants to help people to have a sense of purpose, when he puts down and even tries to publicly shame people who are different than he is?! It is saaaaad that anyone who follow words from someone with such a little mind and small heart.
For me, and my entire group of kind, loving, open-minded book club, this was the biggest disappointment and waste of time.
