Following Author’s Marital Affair, Former Crossway Title Picked Up by Fortress Press

Publisher’s Weekly reports:

Three years after a sex scandal involving Billy Graham’s grandson Tullian Tchividjian, Fortress Press is bringing his book Jesus + Nothing = Everything back to print. Slated for publication in fall 2018, the reprinted book will feature a new cover, new endorsements, and an introduction by Tchividjian that addresses the past three years, including “how the message of God’s grace has sustained him,” according to the publisher.

The book… was originally published by Crossway in 2011. It tied for Christianity Today’s Christian living book award in 2012, and according to Fortress, it sold over 80,000 copies. In 2015, however, Crossway reverted the rights to Jesus + Nothing = Everything as well as the rights to Tchividjian’s 2010 Surprised by Grace back to the author after he stepped down from his position as senior pastor at Florida mega church Coral Ridge Presbyterian, having admitted to extra-marital affairs with adult members of his congregation.

College professor and investigative blogger Warren Throckmorton quoted a press release from Fortress which we tried to source directly. It quotes the author as saying,

Jesus + Nothing = Everything is a book I poured my heart and soul into, and it’s helped a lot of people, including me,” said Tchividjian. “I believe—and need!—the message of this book even more now than when I first wrote it. My wife and I have received hundreds of requests for Jesus+ Nothing = Everything, so I’m extremely grateful that Fortress Press is republishing it.”

Mentioning his other titles, Publisher’s Weekly notes:

Tchividjian’s other books, published by Christian houses WaterBrook/Multnomah and David C Cook, remain in print, but the author hopes that Jesus + Nothing = Everything reaches readers who like him have “crashed and burned,” he told PW.
