Published under the FaithWords imprint, the book spent 13 weeks on The New York Times best-seller list, was No. 1 on CBA's best-seller list and is in its fifth printing.

 Rolf Zettersten, senior vice president and publisher at Hachette Nashville, commented on the shipping milestone.

"The tremendous sales volume of this book is a tribute to the life-changing message Joel Osteen shares with such skill,” Zettersten said. “We are proud to play a part in helping to extend his ministry through publishing.”

FaithWords published Osteen's first book, Your Best Life Now, in October 2004. It was No. 1 on The New York Times best-seller list and remained on the list for more than 200 weeks, selling over 8 million copies.

FaithWords will continue its partnership with Osteen and will publish his next book, Reboot, on Oct. 4.
