Are you dissatisfied with The Purpose Driven® Life? Have you read Rick Warren's bestseller and wondered, "Is that all there is?" If you feel like something is missing from Rick Warren's best-selling books, The Purpose Driven® Life and The Purpose Driven® Church, you are not alone. Evangelical leaders are beginning to voice their concerns about the seeker-sensitive model of ministry. In More Than a Purpose, Dr. Marshall Davis · Documents what evangelical leaders are saying about the megachurch movement. · Explores the origins of Rick Warren's approach in the Church Growth Movement and Robert Schuller's gospel of self-esteem. · Examines the theology of Warren's Saddleback Church and finds that it falls short of historic Christianity. · Exposes the market-driven methodology and philosophical pragmatism of The Purpose Driven® Church. · Shows how the entertainment model of worship has taken over evangelical churches. · Reveals how New Age spirituality has influenced the beliefs and the practices of The Purpose Driven® Life. · Challenges Christians to recover the essentials of evangelical Christianity that will restore integrity to the twenty-first century church Dr. Marshall Davis is an ordained Baptist minister with thirty years of experience as a pastor. He holds advanced degrees from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky. He presently serves as a pastor in western Pennsylvania.
