Sound quality not great

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

The final section of this book was not as strong in sound quality as the rest of the book.

Biblical based

I must have overlooked the section warning me this was biblically based. I tried to persevere and find some key learnings but was unable to.

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!

Up and Down

On the down-side this book sounds like a very long-winded sermon. It's very black and white and Rick often states opinion as fact...which he tries so very hard to justify by continually saying 'the bible says...' and in all honesty there were a fair few times when I felt instead like throwing the bible squarely back at Rick. In a nutshell, when Rick is on form he is undeniably correct and you wil find yourself at the very least actively nodding in agreement.On the other side, Rick can be infuriating to listen to. When he's right he's spot on...otherwide he's totally off the mark. There's no inbetween or grey. For example Rick states that we are 'slaves to God'..on number of occasions his use of language frustrated and even offended. Three stars though because there is a lot of good in this book....best taken in small doses.
