New in the Bookstore: The Reason Driven Life: What Am I Here on Earth For? (2006) by Robert M. Price.
With more than 25,000,000 copies sold, Pastor Rick Warren's The Purpose-Driven Life has been both a commercially successful best-seller and a widely influential book in the Christian community. In The Reason Driven Life Robert M. Price--a former fundamentalist, former Baptist pastor, and member of the Jesus Seminar--offers the first parody and critique of Warren's bestseller. Warren's God, Price says, is a "Frankenstein Monster, a divine bully, and an obsessive stalker."
