Warren Insists “Building a Bridge of Love” to Muslims “Has Nothing to do With Compromising Your Beliefs”

One reader took exception to Rick Warren, Pastor of Saddleback Church in Orange County, California, and author of The Purpose Driven Life, being listed as a supporter of “Chrislam” in last week’s Opinion to Stimulate the Mind. Some followers of Pastor Warren consider The Purpose Driven Life being second only to the Bible as a guide for Christian living.
