I received this book at the end of last year in time for the 10-year anniversary of the original printing of The Purpose Driven Life. I was really excited as I had never read this book, and my church had just completed a church-wide small group Bible Study by Rick Warren.
The content is virtually the same, but it offers some new twists for today's technologically savvy generations. Each chapter has a QR code that will take the reader to a video introduction and an audio Bible Study to be done at the end of the chapter. There are also two new chapters addressing the most common barriers to a purpose driven life. The reader can also connect to other readers through access to an online community, where you can discuss your journey and receive feedback and support.
I confess, I did not try the QR codes for all 42 chapters, but for the chapters I did try, everything seemed to work just fine and the recordings were clear and easy to understand. I will also say that reading a book for review purposes and reading it for an actual personal study experience are two separate things. When you're reading for review purposes, it is easy to read straight through areas that would normally speak to you and not let the words sink in and register within your spirit. I have put this on my list for my devotion rotation so I can go back through it looking for the truth God wants to share.
I would encourage those looking for a direction in their lives to read this book with an open mind. It's written in such a way that anyone will get direction from it whether they are in high school, college, middle age, or retired.
