I disagree with other reviews that state the book says, "It's Not About You, but the whole book is about you". The book is not about you, but about God's purpose for you. There is a lot of difference in God's purpose for you instead of your own selfish, carnal desires for yourself. I read the book and only disagree with one line in the book. That line states we are all SINNER'S saved by grace, but I believe we all WERE sinners saved by grace. One cannot be a sinner and Christian at the same time. I have given this book to numerous people and everyone who read it, even pastors loved the book.

Not God's Purpose for us

The book starts out "It's not about you" but the rest of the book is all about you. Our purpose is to "love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength" and "love your neighbor as yourself". The Bible is all about denying self not feeding our sinful, selfish nature. Luke 17:33 "Whoever seeks to save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it. This is not a Christian book in any way shape or form. It has all the appearance of Godliness but lacks the power thereof. Avoid anything to do with the Purpose Driven philosophy. It will lead to hell.
