" groundbreaking manifesto on the meaning of life.

The most basic question everyone faces in life is Why am I here? What is my purpose? Self-help books suggest that people should look within, at their own desires and dreams, but Rick Warren says the starting place must be with God and his eternal purposes for each life. Real meaning and significance comes from understanding and fulfilling Godí* purposes for putting us on earth.

This book is dedicated to you.
Before you were born, God planned this moment in
your life. It is no accident that you are holding this
book. God longs for you to discover the life he created
you to live--here on earth, and forever in eternity



It'* in Christ that we find out who we are and
what we are living for. Long before we first heard
of Christ,...he had his eye on us, had designs on us
for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is
working out in everything and everyone.


Ephesians 1:11


I am grateful to the hundreds of writers and teachers,
both classical and contemporary, who have shaped my
life and helped me learn these truths. I thank God and
you for the privilege of sharing them with you.

Yes, it was a great book indeed. My wife and I went through the whole study with a small group through our church. Very worth your while!
