Editorially good, doctrinally questionable

Author Phil Batchelor had a specific incident in his life that led him to the writing of this book. A friend was dying in the hospital when he called Mr. Batchelor to his side and in fear asked about the purpose of life, where we go when we die, and similar questions. Realizing that people often ask this question as they near the end of life he thought it would be good to share these answers earlier in life so they can better enjoy life. With that as the goal he wrote The Purpose of Life. Some of the questions he examines include: Who am I, where do I come from, and what is my purpose on earth? Some readers will have problems with his theology and so should read the book before recommending it to others. An example of a position some would have difficulty with is the answer to the question of where we come from. He believes that we existed in heaven with God before we were born and God put us into our earthly body while wiping out our memory of being in heaven. His concepts of paradise and prison at death and Jesus' role there as well as other items represent doctrinal positions that are not held by many Christians. Some groups (Mormons for example) will have very few problems with it and are likely to recommend it; others will have various levels of difficulty with the content.
