Warren also has a new book, Created to Dream: The 6 Phases God Uses to Grow Your Faith coming out on April 11. In Created to Dream, Warren draws on scripture as well as his personal experiences to help readers who "are in the process of seeing God's dream for their lives come to fruition," according to the publisher. Warren tells PW that he feels people need encouragement following the pandemic, especially amid what he calls the five social storms: "global infirmity (Covid), economic insecurity (millions were out of work), social instability (riots and mass shootings), racial inequality (the rise of racism), and political incivility (demonizing opponents)," he says.
Warren adds, "The five social storms that have battered us for the past three years have left people fragmented, frustrated, and fatigued. Many are running on fumes. We need a total reset, not a resumption of pre-pandemic life. For that to happen, people need to learn to dream again. But they also need to know how to handle the inevitable delays, difficulties, and dead-ends they'll face before their dream is realized."
