Synopsis

This book has transformed millions of lives. Are you ready for a change?


 


Since its release, The Purpose Driven Life has been translated into eighty-five different languages and has become the “Bestselling non-fiction hardback book in history” according to Publisher’s Weekly, all because of the Christ-centered approach the book takes to answering life’s most fundamental question: What on earth am I here for?


 


This new hardcover edition is reimagined for a new generation, with four new features including:


 



Video introductions by Rick Warren to chapters 1-42
An audio lesson at the end of each chapter, with more than thirty additional hours of teaching by Rick Warren
Two new bonus chapters on the most common barriers to living a purpose-driven life
Access to an online community where you can discuss your journey to purpose, get feedback, and receive support

 


On your journey you’ll find the answers to three of life’s most important questions: The Question of Existence: Why am I alive?, The Question of Significance: Does my life matter?, The Question of Purpose: What on earth am I here for?


 


Living out the purpose you were created for moves you beyond mere survival and success to a life of significance—the life you were meant to live.
