Answers THAT question you always wanted to ask!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. It IS very much based on the Bible, but then, if you are looking at this book, you know Rick is a Pastor. As someone that had bad experiences in several churches growing up, and not a fan of God's "fan clubs" (what I call organized religious groups) - I REALLY enjoy Rick's books, podcasts and overall style. Even if you are not a believer in God, there are so many things in this book that are worth hearing and learning. We have to live with 7 billion others on this planet - there are so many gems in this book that are helpful to any human being.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Purpose Driven Life?

Too many to list....I am listening to it again in fact....

What about Rick Warren’s performance did you like?

I just LOVE his story-telling style - I think that is my favorite part - he makes learning FUN! He is humorous and down-to-earth. He's the kind of guy you would wanna sit on the porch with a drink a glass of iced tea. Not at all a typical "preacher."

What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Purpose Driven Life?

Gosh, way too many to list. Way too many. So many good quotes (not just biblical either) and so many good insights based on common sense...I think that it made me see that life s worth living...which I didn't think it was before.

Any additional comments?

Give it a listen! Well worth your time!

Eye Opening for me

What made the experience of listening to The Purpose Driven Life the most enjoyable?

I went into this book based on a recommendation from a friend so I was unsure what to expect. I'm a Christian in every sense of the word and I wanted to find a way to better live my life. After listening to this book my eyes are as the title of my review suggests: Wide open. So many questions I've had were answered and by listening I realized that while I strive to be a good person, I do fall very far from hitting the perfect mark.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Rick does a great job of talking to you and not preaching to you. I think if you have someone telling you what you should do, how you should do it, and then back it all up with Scripture really goes a long way at helping people understand why something should be done. For me it was tithing. My parents did, I know lots of other people who do it, but I never really saw the reason to struggle even more financially by tithing. How wrong I have been.

What about Rick Warren’s performance did you like?

He has a nice tone and very easy to listen to.

What did you learn from The Purpose Driven Life that you would use in your daily life?

I think the big take away for me is knowing that even though I may not be perfect, I'm not really expected to be. I've learned that worship is very different from what I was taught worship was.
