The Purpose Driven Peace Train is building steam, on the seeker friendly tracks, picking up passengers and youth groups along it's destination to Rome.

Ghost riter, what would that nice message be?
---Cindy on 2/5/08

I read this book about a year ago and i found that it was good and helped me alot. I wasnt a Daily Bible reader and now i am because of that book. It's full of scriptures and has a nice message: you are made by Him to serve Him. I think that what you get out of the book depends on the person that reads and how they read it. Everyday I read it, I pray to the Father that He be the one to show me what I needed to learn from this book. I read knowing my Father was guiding me, with Him in my thoughts.

I received this book as present, years ago.
The desire was never there to pick it up and read it, and eventually, I threw it in the trash. Later on, I found out why.
Many have become driven with the same purpose, but I know who that driver is and it's not God.

Too many churches try to be "seeker friendly". Do a google search for "seeker friendly churches". They try to make it comfortable for the visitor, even if it means leaving out parts of the Bible that would make someone uncomfortable. When the Holy Spirit convicts you of a sin, believe me, it is not comfortable! But it is in a loving way!

alan ---did you happen to take the time to look up the verses I gave? God sure gives a lot of weight to doctrine. read em first then question the logic
---r.w. on 7/27/06

R.w. You complain "warren says that God wont ask about our religious background or doctrinal views"
Do you think that God will? Jesus did not say we would be saved by our theological knowledge, nor did any of the apoptles or deciples.

I have not read it and I do not wish to read it. The title alone puts me right off -- there is something wrong with it.
---Helen_5378 on 7/25/06

elder the room agrees warren is up to no good. check this out. Rick warren endorses "breath prayers." he didnt get that from the Bible. but he did get it from the benedictine monk and universalist, John Main. warren says that God wont ask bout our religious background or doctrinal views. hmmm2 Tim 3:16, 2 Tim 4:3 Titus 1:9 2 John 1:10 Rev 2:14-15

r.w., ....and your creditability lies where?
Let us know. It will be interesting.
---Elder on 7/21/06

I have read the book and was blessed by it.

There is a book called "The Purpose Driven Church" and it seems that both Frank and Linda have assumed that the question was about that book.

The "Purpose Driven Life" is a different book
---alan8869_of_UK on 7/19/06

I have read the book and been part of a "Bible Study" where it was used. There was no Bible Study. The book makes sure that you remember not to remind the unsaved that they are sinners who need to repent. The book also uses quotes from extreme feminists and atheists. Check out the people who are being quoted in the book.

I havent read it, but my dad is the illustrator that drew the oak tree logo on the front and the other illustrations throughout that book. His name is listed on the copyright page. (if he would have asked for royalties he would be a millionaire)

A "seeker friendly" church that seeks to make man more comfortable than it seeks to make God more comfortable is out of order. God is comfortable in the midst of hearts knit together in love; people of one mind, one accord, one exalt His Son Jesus. We love seekers but we love God more.
---Linda6563 on 7/19/06

I found it was a book which proved you could do anything with a big enough concordance to all the translations of the Bible, so you could find the verse that proved what you wanted.
---mike8384 on 7/19/06

Its a wonderful book.
---pkay on 7/19/06

I have read it and I liked it alot and I would recommend this book to anyone.
