Which Book Has Made The Greatest Impact On Your Life ?

"The purpose driven life" by Rick Warren has impacted me the most. In fact, it is a book I find myself reading over and over again, (I guess I ve read it at least five times). Reading the book will help you understand why you are alive, in addition to revealing God's amazing plan for you - both here and now, and for eternity. If you ve read the stuff, what's your take on it?

And, folks tell us about the most impactful book you ve read and why you think we need to read such.

With the exception of one poster, all the others are foreigners. How else would you be influenced by books written by foreigners at the expense of our own Nigerian writers? I thought I would read names such as

Fagunwa

Gabriel Okara

J.P Clark

Oluwole Soyinka

Chinua Achebe etc

@Ndipe, your choice is not someone else's choice , you made urs likewise him, and mind u the Bible is the Book of Books, so if he says his is the purpose driven life, isn't it cool? so stop feeling like the righteous, we are talking literature,the Bible is literature too but we learn from evrything.

Mine is The Holy Bible.

Chidebe, abeg, choose The Holy Bible over "The purpose driven life". That should not be used as a substitute for the whole grand picture. Its like settling for crumbs at a feast.

the message may be summed up by : "Life isn't fair--so what?" however: start by accepting your reality, then you change it.
