Amazon.com and BN.com rank Rick Warren’s The Purpose-Driven Life at #2 now (Bamm.com at #1 nonfiction), apparently from the dramatic publicity it has received through the Brian Nichols’ Atlanta courtroom shootings and kidnapping of Ashley Smith. Smith essentially talked Nichols into surrendering, in part by reading from the Bible, The Purpose-Driven Life, and discussing his life.
Matt Forge of the Lone Star Times has a different take on the drama, that is, Darwin’s Origin was the delightful topic, not Purpose.
