New Purpose Driven app

A new iOS app has been released to mark the 10th anniversary of Rick Warren’s bestselling book, “The Purpose Driven Life”.

The app includes the entire content of the book plus 42 built-in videos featuring further insights into each chapter from Warren.

It also gives users the ability to create notes for use in small group settings or for personal study.

The arrival of the app follows the release of the 10th anniversary edition of "The Purpose Driven Life”.

The book has been re-tooled for a new generation and features 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.

The app is available from Zondervan at

"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, California. 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."
