Originally published in 2002, The Purpose Driven Life is a bestselling non-fiction book with more than 30 million copies sold worldwide.

The Purpose Driven Life enhanced e-book features the entire text of the best-seller, supplemented with 42 brand-new, three-minute embedded videos by Dr. Rick Warren. Each of the 40 chapters of the book opens with a video offering insight into the chapter, as well as a video introduction and conclusion. The enhanced e-book also allows readers to take notes right on their iPad or e-book reader.
“In the eight years since I wrote The Purpose Driven Life, I’ve received countless questions and feedback from readers worldwide. As a result, God has provided me with new insights and perspectives on the book that I wanted to share with those who have already read it as well as first time readers,” said Pastor Warren. “My hope is that readers will benefit from and find value in the new video content and that it will bring new understanding and awareness of God’s greater purpose for their lives.”
In addition to the enhanced e-book, Zondervan is also introducing The Purpose Driven Life app, which includes the video content as well as providing users the ability to easily share content or personal thoughts and reflections on the book with others through social media networks.
