|THE PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE:|
What On Earth Am I Here For?
by Rick Warren
Zondervan Publishing; 2002
The Purpose-Driven Life invites a 40-day Spiritual Journey in perspective to reduce your stress, simplify your decisions, increase your satisfaction, and, most important, prepare you for eternity. Inside this book, Rick Warrentakes a small start on getting the focus off of self [p.17-18]and into Romans 12:2 [p.42]; exposes the retirement ruse [p.81,119,262]; delivers us a heaping dose of church membership sophistry [Day 17]; makes a brief visit with speaking the truth in love [p.146-147], while prescribingbalance [Day 39]in lieu of moderation or steadfastness. 40 days and 334 pagesfrom Rick's spiritual voyage of perceptions, burdened beneath a potpourri of moot points, syncretic quotations,and select verses lent from popular paraphrase-translations of the Bible. Jesus said, "I am the True Vine, you are the branches;
he who abides in Me, and I in him, he bears much fruit.
For apart from Me you can do nothing."
