Accompanying the much-anticipated Apple iPad launch a few weeks ago, Zondervan, the world’s leading Christian publisher, is one of the first publishers that has already released titles for the new Apple device. Starting in April, Zondervan released more than 1,000 titles, which are available to be downloaded. Over the next three months, it plans to release another 150 books. It eventually plans to release all its eBooks in the iPad version.
Zondervan’s titles are available from Apple’s iBookstore. In addition to purchasing material, users will have the option to read book reviews, author information, excerpts and additional details about books that Zondervan offers.
Excited about Zondervan’s release on the Apple iPad, Steve Sammons, executive vice president of consumer engagement at Zondervan, stated, “As a division of HarperCollins, we are fortunate to play a major part in the iPad launch.” Sammons went on to say that the company is thrilled that, during Easter, Zondervan’s titles were made available to an even broader audience, thanks to the iPad.
Books released so far include three translations of the Holy Bible, along with 1,000 other popular titles, such as The Christian Atheist by Craig Groeschel, Take Three by Karen Kingsbury, and classics such as The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren and The Case for Christ by Lee Strobel. Additional iPad books released and available for download by Zondervan include over 30 Spanish titles and 150 children’s books.
Located in Grand Rapids, Mich., Zondervan has been recognized as an industry leader for more than 75 years, and its authors are well known for their excellence in writing. The publisher has been presented with more Christian Book awards than any other in the industry.
