Deceived on Purpose
The New Age Implications of the Purpose-Driven Church
Mountain Stream Press
Christian author Warren Smith's book Deceived on Purpose warns about the serious implications of Pastor Rick Warren's book, The Purpose Driven Life. Smith takes the reader into the inner working of today's evangelical world as he explains the questionable interconnections of Christian and New Age leaders, and the possibility of Rick Warren's Peace Plan merging with the New Age Peace Plan. Smith contends that New Age sympathizer Robert Schuller has had a great influence on Rick Warren's teachings and that Schuller's influence can be found in Rick Warren's book, The Purpose Driven Life. Smith was a former New Age follower and he draws from his knowledge of the New Age subculture that is being subtly weaved into the Christian culture.
Warren Smith earned his B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania and M.S.W. from Tulane University. He is a freelance writer and community social worker who was formerly involved in the New Age movement. He has written extensively on he subject of spiritual deception and has been widely interviewed on radio and television.
