Rick Warren

Rick Warren

Rick Warren founded Saddleback Church over 33 years ago at the age of just 26. He is probably best known internationally for the books he has authored. Probably the most famous being the Purpose Driven Life. The book has sold over 32 million copies which is a phenomenal amount really and is currently the “bestselling non-fiction hardback book in history. It is also the second most translated book after the Bible.

With that amount of accolades the book has been on the New York Times Best Seller List as well as the Wall Street Journal best seller chart.

The intention of the book is to be read as a daily devotional with 40 short read chapters which the reader is meant to read on consecutive days. It is possibly one of my most favourite Christian books but as you can see from the sheer volume of copies it has sold, I wouldn’t be alone their.

This isn’t a review of the book but given it’s huge success it’s very difficult to write a review of Rick Warren without including his most famous book.

In addition to the Purpose Drive Life Rick’s sermons can be heard on the weekly podcast that is produced by Saddleback Church. The church also produces a regular podcast called Drive Time Devotions.
