I read this book upon it's initial release back in 2002 and remember it being extremely powerful in my life. But,it wasn't until I received a review copy of the expanded version and began reading through it again did I realize the unbelievable impact it has had on my life. I believe that this book, which drove me to the Word of God, has transformed my life and, in turn, countless lives around the world. Upon doing a church Bible study on this book back in 2004, it was then that I launched my ministry ScriptureNow.com, my purpose. And since that point in time, ScriptureNow has lead countless lives into the Word of God. In addition to that, as I applied "The Purpose Driven" life principles to my life, I became a writer . . . for God's purposes, not my own. And by the boundless grace of God, I am now in the top 20 Amazon Authors in Religion and Spirituality. I humbly reflect on all God has accomplished through my surrendered life and marvel and His miraculous power. After reading through "The Purpose Drive Life" again, eight years later, I am so eternally grateful for what Pastor Rick Warren has written. I am convinced more than ever that this book along with the Word of God transformed my life to fulfill purposes that will be known into eternity. Thank you Pastor Warren for your obedience to God.
The revised and expanded edition has been done extraordinarily well. With video teaching links and iphone bar scans, this is truly a revised version that is sure to more deeply impact lives in a more profound way than ever before.
