Evangelical pastor Richard Duane "Rick" Warren was born in San Jose, California on January 28, 1954 and grew up in Ukiah, California. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from California Baptist University, a Master of Divinity degree in 1979 from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and his Doctor of Ministry degree from Fuller Theological Seminary. Warren worked at the Texas Ranch for Christ before founding the mega church Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California in 1980. He has written or co-written several Christian books, including the bestselling guide to church ministry and evangelism, The Purpose Driven Church, and The Purpose Driven Life. Warren has lectured as a theologian at many noted universities and seminaries and was chosen in 2008 by President-elect Obama to give the invocation at his inauguration ceremony.

Rated 5 out of 5★ by In this microwave world we live in, it's good to remember what we are truly here to do in this place, this moment. I think anyone who reads the book also will have a blue light moment, and will start to do more for him who created us for him. We are here only for a moment. Make the best of it. I am taking the book with me on vocation with my sisters. 04/22/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Excellent book for class use. The book was purchased for bible classes at the the church that I attend each member was required to purchase one, I'm so proud that I didn't have to do a lot of running around to get it, ordering online was really simple, and for those that have not found theres I will recomend that they visit Walmart or go online and order it. Thanks so much! 04/15/2014
