The Purpose Driven Life

The Purpose Driven Life

by Rick Warren


Why are we here? Does life have a meaning? These questions have motivated philosophers and scientists to try and make sense of our surroundings for millennia.

Many believe they've found their answers through religion, a deep belief in hard science, or the acceptance that they'd never truly know where we've come from. If you are Christian, you will probably believe that God has a purpose for your life, but often it's hard to work out what this purpose is.

Rick Warren is a Baptist evangelical Christian pastor and bestselling author. In The Purpose Driven Life, he lets you in on the five purposes for every Christian life. For Warren, life does have meaning – but it's your job to go and look for it. Through being intentional, welcoming God into your life, and avoiding envy, Warren posits that you can deepen your connection with others and expand your consciousness.
