Rick Warren Must Have A Great Editor

Articles Collection cover image

This morning I received an email from Rick Warren. Yup. Rick took time out of his Sunday morning, which I assume is quite busy, to send me an email. I would have thought he’d be busy putting the final touches on his sermon or perhaps praying, but no, he emailed me to ask if I can help him with a very special project.

I noticed that his style of writing is a little bit different in this email than in his books. All I can conclude is that he must have a really good editor – one he did not consult prior to sending me this email.

Below is the complete text of the email he sent me (which was sent from [email protected], so it must be him!).

Unfortunately I cannot, at this time, spare $20,000. So sorry Rick, you’ll have to find your support elsewhere.

    The Hands and Feet of the Bible

    The Bible has life and the Bible brings life because it has been spoken by God. The Bible’s life, its voice, its feet, and hands are the life, voice, feet, and hands of God extended toward his people. For that reason among others it is always worthy of our time, our attention, and our dedication.
