Tullian Tchividjian signs three-book deal with David C Cook


William Graham Tullian Tchividjian



David C Cook announced the addition of Tullian Tchividjian to its roster of acclaimed authors. Tchividjian (pronounced cha-vi-jin) is the pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, a visiting professor of theology at Reformed Theological Seminary, and a grandson of Billy and Ruth Graham.

“Tchividjian’s approach to spiritual matters is never casual or flippant, and his aim is always dead-on accurate, “ said Don Pape, publisher of trade books for Cook. “His relationship with arguably the most famous preacher of all time and his experience at the helm of one of the most visible churches in the nation will lend a novel perspective to any subject he undertakes, including suffering.”

Through an in-depth study of Job, the first book in this three-book deal (as yet untitled) will take a fresh look at the long-standing dilemma of human suffering. “There is nothing more certain than the fact that you and I will suffer in this life,” Tchividjian says. “This book sets out to show that suffering is one of the primary tools God uses to set us free. The gospel alone provides us with the foundation to maintain radical joy in the face of remarkable loss as we increasingly realize that in Christ, everything we really need, we already possess. This is what we tackle in the book.”

The first book is slated for release in Fall 2012, with two books to follow.

A graduate of Columbia International University with a degree in Philosophy and Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, Tchividjian is the author of Do I Know God? Finding Certainty in Life’s Most Important Relationship, Unfashionable: Making a Difference in the World by Being Different, and Surprised by Grace: God’s Relentless Pursuit of Rebels. His next book Jesus + Nothing = Everything will be released in October 2011. Tchividjian is also a contributing editor to Leadership Journal. He speaks at conferences throughout the U.S. and his sermons are broadcast daily on the radio program Liberate.
