rick warren and sam harris debate about god

I’ve been trying to read A Purpose Given Life by Rick Warren (to see what all the talk is about) recently. I managed to get about one third of the way through it.. maybe even almost a half and I lost complete and total motivation to finish it. That being said, I ran across this interesting debate between Rick Warren and Sam Harris. Sam’s latest book God is Not Great looks like an interesting read. I’d like to finish Rick Warren’s then read Sam Harris’ in order to compare their contrasting viewpoints. Check out the following article and let me know what you think.

PS – One of the things I’m struggling with is.. what’s the difference between not believing in God versus believing that there exist something that people label as God that is everything. Kind of like naturalisticPantheism. The difference to me seems to be in the details of the label. What are your thoughts?
