Reviews - What do customers think about A Catholic Perspective on the Purpose Driven Life?
Ridiculous! May 9, 2010
Rick Warren's book, The Purpose Driven Life, is EXCELLENT, and needs NO revisions for Catholics. I know many Catholics who have read Warren's book and did not find it to be in conflict with their faith. Why? Because it is a CHRISTIAN BOOK AND CATHOLICISM IS A CHRISTIAN DENOMINATION!!! This author should be ashamed for trying to make a buck off of Rick Warren's success. TERRIBLE! :-(
How unfortunate Mar 14, 2009
How unfortunate...another book emphasizing the difference between Catholicism and Christianity when we need more books emphasizing Catholicism is PART OF CHRISTIANITY. I realized lots of people will read this "review" (I haven't read either book) and rate it as useless (I'm hoping to achieve 0 for 10...can you help me out?), but it's important to stop separating Catholicism from the rest of the faith. And A Catholic Perspective on The Purpose Driven Life so does NOT do that. Bummer.
A Great Unbiased Work Nov 16, 2008
I enjoyed the Purpose Driven Book by Rick Warren, but had some questions of how his perspective was presented. I found that this book is well written and supports many of Rick's thoughts and differentiates areas required from the Catholic Church in a way that is not negative to Rick Warren's original work. I really enjoyed this well written book and proud that it didn't take away from original book that has been a guide to help so many. It helps put in perspective that even thou we have difference in faith we are still all Christians with much common ground. As a Catholic I will be looking for other books from this Author going forward.
Not Quite What I Expected May 12, 2007
This book, although written well, is not quite what I expected. It is, indeed, just as the title states: "A Catholic Perspective..." It is to be used in conjunction with reading "The Purpose Driven Life." I mistakenly thought that this was a substitute for that book, as I am Catholic and I realize that our faith, although similar, does pose some differences. It is, like I said, a companion to be used while reading Rick Warren's book. I had been hoping that it was its own Catholic version, period. It still made interesting clarifications. Just wanted everyone to know what they are buying.
