PRO: Megachurch pastor behind the bestselling book, The Purpose Driven Life, and an intellectual beacon to a large group of Purpose Driven churches. Warren is also at the forefront of the Evangelical movement's increased focus on the material as well as the spiritual needs of the world's poor and suffering. He is trying to develop a global network to encourage self-sufficiency and has taken on Rwandawith its President's enthusiastic participationas the first arena for his efforts.
CON: If he is unable to show significant progress in Rwanda, the preacher, who has succeeded in ever-expanding enterprises, could be accused of over-reaching.
