GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.—An iOS app providing a portable and interactive user experience for the 10th Anniversary expanded version of Rick Warren’s bestselling book The Purpose Driven Life: What On Earth Am I Here For? is now available from Zondervan.
The Purpose Driven Life app includes the entire content of the book as well as 42 built-in videos of Warren further sharing insights into each chapter. In addition, individuals will have the ability to create notes to use in small group settings or for personal study.
“The Purpose Driven Life app allows for simple and efficient portability perfect for on-the-go reading,” said Tracy Danz, vice president and publisher of Zondervan trade books. “What better gift to give this Christmas than one that will help an individual start a journey of discovering the answer to life’s most important question: What on earth am I here for?”
The Purpose Driven Life app is a universal app, which gives readers the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad versions for a single purchase in the iTunes App Store for $9.99. iCloud will keep all Apple devices in sync, including bookmarks and notes.
The Purpose Driven Life: What On Earth Am I Here For? 10th anniversary edition, retooled for a new generation, released in November. The new version includes two additional chapters addressing the issues of “The Envy Trap—I must be like you to be happy” and “The People-Pleaser Trap—I must be liked by you to be happy,” taking the book from a 40-day to a six-week individual or small group study.
Over the last 10 years, The Purpose Driven Life has transformed countless lives, selling more than 32 million copies worldwide in 50 languages including Afrikaans, Arabic, Farsi, Rwandan, Sango, Swahili and Zulu.
“There is an entire generation who was too young to read The Purpose Driven Life 10 years ago but are now asking the critical question, ‘What on earth am I here for?’” said Warren, pastor of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Calif. “This anniversary edition represents a new approach for a new generation incorporating a new understanding of barriers that keep people from finding their purpose, based on thousands of readers’ letters I have received.”
Saddleback Church is a 2012 Outreach 100 church (No. 8 Largest). An interview with Rick Warren is featured in the January/February 2013 issue of Outreach, which commemorates the magazine’s 10th anniversary.
