One of the countless things that I’m clinging onto to say that I am fortunate is this book. Having crossed paths with this masterwork is one of the significant experiences I’ve had.
The Purpose Driven Life is written by Pastor Rick Warren.
Richard Duane “Rick” Warren (born January 28, 1954) is an American evangelical Christian pastor and author.He is the founder and senior pastor of Saddleback Church, an evangelical megachurch in Lake Forest, California, that is the eighth-largest church in the United States. (including multi-site churches).He is also a bestselling author of many Christian books, including his guide to church ministry and evangelism, The Purpose Driven Church, which has spawned a series of conferences on Christian ministry and evangelism. He is perhaps best known for the subsequent book The Purpose Driven Life which has sold more than 30 million copies, making Warren a New York Times bestselling author.
This book answers the biggest questions to be asked, “What is the meaning of life?” and “What on earth am I here for?” This gives you the TRUTH ABOUT ALL. This offers a guide that will help you to live life to the fullest.Believe me, if you only give this a shot, you’ll never be the same again (implies on seekers, new believers). But if you already are in your highest spiritual state, also feel free to read it for it may have something you still yet to know.
The first time I read it, I was a seeker. I got to conclude that God really exists and I want to know him more. Believe me, all of the hairs in my body standed up for I was astonished on the book’s content. I felt deep down that every single word is TRUE.
You know what, I’d come to think that most of the answers to whatever question we have, can be found within ourselves. Often, we already know what is right or true and what is wrong or fake, without the help of any book or any people. It’s already built in. We just always have hard time letting that to surface. So we need help from others who can speak up.
So now, if you have decided to give it a try and you don’t have a copy of the original book (you see, I have the Tagalog Edition), I’ll help you. Our journey will just take 40 days. C’mon! Just 4o days of your life. Please spare it for knowing what He has promised for you, what He wants you to do with your time left here. Your destiny awaits. One chapter at a time. Meaning, don’t get too excited. Seriously dealt with just one chapter for a day. Read it early in the morning, so you can contemplate the whole day on what the chapter implies. But here’s the thing, I can’t promise that I can post every single day, continuously… for some reasons. It is clearly stated in the book that you should not miss a day on what I call the 40 day travel-to-goodness. Brothers and sisters, I have decided to share my blessing on the best way that I can, but if you can’t stand that if there will come a time that I’ll not be able to post and your “study” will be paused, feel free to buy the book itself. And BTW, what I’m gonna post is how I understand the book, not the complete copy. It’s in my OWN WORDS. If you don’t like the sound of that, eye the option I gave earlier 😉
I’m egzoited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let’s do this. See you in Chapter 1 🙂
Thank you so much Pastor Rick Warren!
You are my inspiration. Like you, I want to share these wisdom to everybody. I realized that having read it means responsibility. That I have to do something. I need to communicate it to the people that I can reach, as far as my resources can. Thank you, thank you!
