      I am not a heretic, though this review might make me sound like one (for some). The Purpose Driven Life is not a bad book, but is titled inaccurately.

      I picked up a copy at a time when my life was at an all-time low and I was feeling lost.

      I hoped to be enlightened after reading it,


      but alas, it was all about Jesus and Mother Mary and sin and the likes.

      As I said, those are not bad things to discuss, but not what I had been hoping to read.

      It should have been entitled “Extended Catechism”, and then it would have been a good book that served its purpose.

      Having been raised by ...


      • a somewhat devout Catholic family, I knew those things since I was a kid.

        I was still lost and empty after reading the book, needless to say, I didn’t find a sense of purpose.

        I cannot recommend this book to anybody with the same dilemma.

        I instead suggest trying books by a certain Filipino preacher whois fond of

        wearing jeans and suit.

        Definitely a lot more uplifting and enlightening with his true stories about life and God that everyone can relate to.

        Time passed, and I found my sense of purpose in a most fulfilling job: being a social worker.

        And yes, I believe in God.

        It’s just that dogmatic writings doesn’t work too well.
