CINCINNATI (July 29, 2015) – Matthew Kelly, a New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author, announces new book, Rediscover Jesus, for hardcover release on August 17, 2015. In the first day of pre-orders on Amazon.com (July 1, 2015), the book reached number four on the overall Bestsellers list, and number one on the Movers and Shakers list. In the time since July 1, Rediscover Jesus has ranked number one on the Catholicism, Prayer, and Christian Books & Bibles lists, and has more than 21,000 pre-orders.
“More books have been written about Jesus than any other person or subject in history,” said Kelly. “This book is not a book with all the answers. It is just a simple, approachable, digestible, starting point for anyone who shares my yearning to rediscover Jesus. It, too, is an invitation,” he added.
The world is constantly grappling with crisis and war. People are weary from the dysfunction of their own lives. The chaos is crying out for order. The complexity is crying out for simplicity. Many individuals are looking for something to solve the crisis of their lives and the crisis of our times.
It is time to stop looking for something and start looking to someone—Jesus of Nazareth. It’s time to rediscover Jesus.
In Rediscover Jesus, Kelly takes readers on a 40-day spiritual journey to encounter Jesus. Short reflections at the end of each chapter help integrate what readers learn into their everyday lives.
“There is a lot of talk about how important a personal relationship/encounter with Jesus is.” Kelly said. “But we find that most Christians don’t know what it is or how to get it. I think the promise of this book is to facilitate that encounter and kick-start that relationship with Jesus,” he added.
Rediscover Jesus is the sequel to Rediscover Catholicism, which other than the Bible is the bestselling Catholic book in American history; it has sold more than seven million copies.
You can pre-order a copy of Rediscover Jesus on either Amazon.com or BarnesandNoble.com. Readers who pre-order the book by August 16, 2015, have a chance to win one of several prizes, including an all-expenses-paid trip to Italy with Kelly and those going on the Dynamic Catholic Pilgrimage to Rome this November.
