Meet the Authors

Rick Warren

Dr. Rick Warren is a pastor, author, global strategist, theologian and philanthropist. He's often been named "America's most influential spiritual leader" and "America's Pastor." Calling him a spiritual entrepreneur, Forbes magazine said, "If Warren's ministry was a business it would be compared with Dell, Google, or Starbucks in impact."

As a pastor, Warren founded Saddleback Church in Orange County, California in 1980 with one other family. Today, it is one of the largest and best-known churches in the world and one of America's most influential with approximately 22,000 weekly attendees, a 120-acre campus and over 300 community ministries and support groups for families, single parents, prisoners, addicts, those with: HIV/AIDS; depression; MS; Parkinson's; Autism and many others. On one occasion the church fed 42,000 homeless people - three meals a day - for 40 days.

He also leads the Purpose Driven Network of churches, a global coalition of congregations in 162 countries. More than 400,000 ministers and priests have been trained worldwide, and almost 157,000 church leaders subscribe to the Ministry ToolBox, his weekly newsletter. His book, The Purpose Driven Church is listed in "100 Christian Books That Changed the 20th Century." Forbes magazine called it "the best book on entrepreneurship, management, and leadership in print."

His online interactive community,, provides sermons, forums, and other practical resources for pastors - including archives of a bi-weekly newsletter that is sent to more than 100,000 pastors and ministry leaders.

Dr. Warren and his wife Kay are passionate about global missions and what he calls attacking the five Global Goliaths - spiritual emptiness, egocentric leadership, extreme poverty, pandemic disease, and illiteracy/poor education. His goal is a second Reformation by restoring responsibility in people, credibility in churches, and civility in culture. The solution is The Peace Plan, a massive effort to mobilise Christians around the world into an outreach effort to attack these five global giants of today by promoting reconciliation, equipping servant leaders, assisting the poor, caring for the sick, and educating the next generation.

As an author he wrote the #1 all-time best-selling hardback in American history, The Purpose Driven Life, with over 30 million copies sold worldwide. He has also written The Hope You Need: From The Lords Prayer; Rick Warren's Bible Study Methods: Twelve Ways You Can Unlock God's Word; and God's Answers to Life's Difficult Questions.

As a theologian, Dr. Warren holds a B.A. from California Baptist University, a M.Div. from South western Theological Seminary, and Doctor of Ministry from Fuller Theological Seminary. He has lectured at Oxford, Cambridge, the University of Judaism, the Evangelical Theological Society, and numerous seminaries and universities. He is known for explaining theology in understandable ways and his books have been translated into more than 50 languages. Dr. Warren says he teaches theology without using theological terms and telling people it is theology.

As a global strategist, Dr. Warren advises leaders in the public, private, and faith sectors on leadership development, poverty, health, education, and faith in culture. He has been invited to speak at the United Nations, the World Economic Forum in Davos, the African Union, The Council on Foreign Relations, Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, TIME's Global Health Summit, and numerous congresses around the world. TIME magazine named him one of "15 World Leaders Who Mattered Most" in 2004 - and in 2005 one of the "100 Most Influential People in the World". Also, in 2005 U.S. News and World Report named him one of "America's 25 Best Leaders."

As philanthropists, Rick and Kay Warren give away 90 percent of their income through three foundations: Acts of Mercy, which serves those infected and affected by AIDS; Equipping the Church, which trains church leaders in developing countries; and The Global PEACE Fund, which fights poverty, disease, and illiteracy.

Dr Warren and his wife reside in Southern California. They have three children and four grandchildren.

Essential Reading
5 stars By Karen Tuckwell, May 15 2016
Having a biblical view on looking after yourself is so important.  Rick Warren writes with clarity and sincerity.  He writes of how he was convicted by the Holy Spirit regarding his weight.  Every chapter is encouraging and gives so many helpful tips

Disappointed and EXTREMELY EXCITED :)
5 stars By Gerowyn, Jan 10 2015
I was disappointed when I started reading this book as I was looking for a book on the Daniel Fast based on the Book of Daniel but ... I was extremely excited as I got something even better as this book is more focused on How we can Honor God with our bodies (and how we dishonor him) and not just about seeking God for something...

My favorite part is where it explains that our culture teaches we can do anything with our bodies as they are ours, where God teaches us that our bodies are on loan and they are His and we are our bodies steward and we need to look after it.

Love this

Practical and brilliant
5 stars By Jacqui, Jan 07 2015
I have loved this book. It is not just another book on dieting or getting fit. The three authors combine to write a very balanced and holistic approach to health. It focuses on the five principles for health: food, fitness, focus, faith and friends. Each of these principles are explained in a very positive and readable way. I found the food section helpful as it explained how different foods effect the body and has many lists of great foods along with recipes. The fitness section also makes fitness doable for anyone no matter what level of fitness you are beginning at. Although focus, faith and friends are each dealt separately, I found that they all went together and were so encouraging. All through the book you are encouraged to do the Daniel plan with at least one friend. Journeying with God and a friend helps you to achieve your fitness goals. A brilliant book.

Essential Reading for People Who Want to Live Their Lives for the Long Haul
4 stars By Dr Bernard Low, Dec 09 2014
This book, The Daniel Plan, is surprisingly different from many other books that deal with either health or fitness. Its approach is thoroughly holistic. Its authors, Rick Warren, Daniel Amen, and Mark Hyman, recognize that health is not just about the physical but is also about the spiritual, emotional, relational and mental. Hence they advocate a healthy lifestyle that is revolved around Faith, Food, Fitness, Focus, and Friends. Their philosophy and approach is both biblical and practical. Every dimension of The Daniel Plan, be it Faith, Food, etc, is biblically rooted and suggests helpful ways we can live this dimension more healthily.

This book is very readable and is an important reference for the healthy lifestyle that God wants us to live. This reviewer read this book and went away feeling challenged and inspired to change his lifestyle so that he can live more healthily to go for the long haul - for his God, for his loved ones, for his friends, and for the ministry that God has for him.

If there should be a revised edition of this book, this reviewer would like to suggest to the authors to include meal plans which are customised to the taste buds of Asians who do not live in the West.
