I have read many posts that are highly critical of Rick Warren and many of his books, especially the "Purpose Driven Church" and the "Purpose Driven Life". I do not want to get into a discussion on the man, Rick Warren; however, I do want to know why there is such intense dislike (trying to be nice) for his books? I have read both of the books listed and have found them different but altogether sound. I would have done things differently as far as how it was structured and keeping with one translation of scripture. All in all, I have found them to be good and worth while books. I would simply like to discuss what the problems are from those of you who dislike these books.
