Dr. Myles Munroe focused quite a number of his teachings on discovering purpose. In fact, he is famously known for the quote, “when the purpose of a thing is not known, abuse is inevitable.”
There is no book written by Dr. Myles Munroe that doesn’t point you to first discovering your purpose, both books written on marriage and relationships, leadership, nation building, or personal success.
However, I have highlighted the top 10ish books written by Dr. Myles Munroe that will give you clear pointers on what you should do with your life.
If you are confused about what you live for, just pick any of these books and you will be grateful you did.
I would like to dedicate this post to Mr. Ebeh Emmanuel who bought me my first ever book written by Dr. Myles Munroe (Spirit of Leadership) in 2016. It was a turning point in my life. I’ve gone on to become a student of Dr. Myles Munroe since then and he has formed the bulk of my mindset about everything in life.

Myles Munroe Books On Purpose and Potential
1. In Pursuit of Purpose
This is the foundational book on the subject of purpose. If you don’t even understand the idea of having a specific purpose for your life, stay with this book. Dr. Myles Munroe in In Pursuit of Purpose made the concept of God’s purpose understandable for even a baby Christian or an average human.
He then takes the reader from that point and guides them into identifying God’s purpose for their life. Every other book Dr. Myles Munroe wrote on purpose is built on the understanding one will get from this book. If you will read any other book on this list, this book will help you understand it better. You should also get it for every teenager you love.

4. Spirit of Leadership
This was the first book I read by Dr. Myles Munroe and before I read this book, I had just glimpses and a vague idea about what to do with my life. After reading this book, I was absolutely sure which path to take. If you are in that position where you need clarity about where to go and what to do with your life, get a copy of this book and read it.
There’s more to the Spirit of Leadership than the title reveals. It doesn’t just teach you how to lead people but how to lead your life, and as a result, influence others to join in your leadership. As this book reveals, no one was created to be a follower. If you think you aren’t a leader and don’t need this book, it means you should get a copy and read it immediately because you are already being deceived. You should get this book for every person you see great potential in.
