    lol, I think I enjoy your posts on the books you don’t like more than the ones you do like! =P That said, I was considering this book so I’m glad I dodged that bullet! Thanks for sharing! =)

    I wonder if every book needs to be ‘theologically deep’. Sometimes books can be helpful when they take simple truths and present them in practical ways.

    @Jeremy,

    I completely agree. There are plenty of excellent books that are devotional or practical. My concern is not that this book is not theologically deep per se, but that being a book which purports to summarise all of Christian theology into five purposes for life (that’s a pretty big ask… you’d want to get it right), it has shallow theology.

    But I assume you’re referring more to my comment “I found the book shallow.” There I was not referring to theological shallowness but just plain old shallowness. Even a devotional book is expected to have substance to it; not to be a lot of fluff. Yet this book is a teaching book.

      Please be careful when it comes to Rick Warrens’ teachings. He believes that we are God!! This New Age christian way of thinking is not the Christianity of the true word of God.

      Mona, that simply is not true. Please check your facts.
