Summary

Life is full of difficult questions. This book will help you find the simple, straightforward answers in ancient Scripture that lead to purpose, peace, and joy starting today.

The Bible is filled with examples of real people who faced the same dilemmas we all face today:

  • How to handle discouragement
  • How to cope with stress
  • How to respond to crises
  • How to deal with depression
  • Why bad things happen
  • What to do about loneliness

Taking you inside the lives of biblical characters such as Moses, Paul, and Jesus himself, best-selling author Rick Warren shows you how they dealt with their circumstances with wisdom and faith in God. From their stories, you will gain a few concrete, easy-to-understand insights that will help you move past your hardships and enjoy a life of purpose, peace, and significance.

Change may not come overnight, but with patience and prayer, you will see a difference.

Spanish edition also available.

Good listen.

It is hard to reach people in depression and as one of those people I found myself hearing what Rick was saying and I listened to it. He understands depression and more importantly understands how God takes us through it.

WOW

First Rick Warren book I have ever read. Actually stopped to write a review so I could tell other people to read it too. Shocked by how profound yet simple, truth-filled yet compassionate, wise yet easy to apply this entire book is. Genuinely a new favorite and I am buying a print copy just to put it on my shelf. I know I will come back to these practical life truths for years to come and point others to them as well. Also, now looking for more Rick Warren books!

Sweet...but

It was a sweet listening.
But nothing new.
Typical talk mostly. No paradigm shifts
Its nice to refresh some biblical stories.
