my son was going through a "life phase" and, after listening to a sermon, decided to embark on this 40 day journey in an attempt to find his life's purpose. i offered to accompany him on the journey just to support him in his decision. this has turned out to be one of the best decisions that i have ever made! this book is a must for anybody seriously searching for their life's purpose or meaning. but like they say, the proof of the pudding is in the eating; everybody should get and read this book!!!
I have heard of this book for years and never read it, but God has a plan for my plans. I got it at the correct time in my life and it is refocusing me back on Him. It is very insightful. I'm planning on getting copies for my children! The hardcover is great from my library collection, too. It is a must own book.
This book is helpful to different people for different reasons. The author explains how God has a purpose for each and every one of us. We have to pray that we fulfill that purpose. The part that was most beneficial for me was the detailed description of the methods that Satan uses to lead us astray. Boy, I wish I had that information many decades ago! Preachers should expound on Satan's temptation methods several times a year every year.
