Book Review, “The Daniel Plan,” Rick Warren, Daniel Amen and Mark Hyman, Authors


The Daniel Plan: 40 Days To Healthier Life, Rick Warren, Daniel Amen and Mark Hyman, authors, is a book dedicated to guiding Christians into becoming healthier as they grow into a deeper relationship with God.

This 40 day adventure is the brainchild of pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest California. Warren became a household name after writing the Book entitled The Purpose Driven Life. This current publication follows a similar thought in that after following a program for 40 days a change in habits can occur, thus a changed life.

The Daniel Plan demonstrates the need for dieting to become healthy, but it does so in a unique presentation. The authors present a program that encompasses heathy eating, faith, focus and the accountability/encouragement of friends, all of which the authors believe are more effective than dieting alone. As Warren states:”The Daniel Plan is far more than a diet. It is a lifestyle program based on biblical principles and five essential components: Food, Fitness, Focus, Faith, and Friends. These last two components — faith and friends — are what I call the secret sauce that makes The Daniel Plan so effective.”

While this book presents a good program that is easily followed, there are some concerns for the amount of money that will be spent on the diet specific foods that need to be purchased, but in the end the results will far outweigh the cost.

This publication offers a unique approach to healthy living and spirituality, thus it is a recommended purchase for those seeking to lose more weight and gain more of God.
