Jesus + Nothing = Everything is Being Republished
I’m excited to announce that my book Jesus + Nothing = Everything is being republished and will be available this fall.
Just over three years ago, the book was taken out of print by the original publisher because I violated the morality clause in my contract and the rights were returned to me. I never thought it would ever be republished.
Well, not long ago a friend put me in touch with Fortress Press and we began a conversation about republishing Jesus + Nothing = Everything—slightly revised, newly designed, with a new introduction from me. After some really good conversations with my friend Tony Jones (the Senior Acquisitions Editor for Fortress Press) we agreed to partner together to get Jesus + Nothing = Everything back in print. I’m honored, humbled, and greatly appreciative of Fortress for their support of me, their commitment to the gospel, and their vision for this book.
Of all the books I’ve written, this is the one that people ask about the most. And while the messenger fell hard, the message remains true and necessary. As I say in the new introduction:
This book was originally written in 2010 and published in 2011. My life now looks and feels very different from my life back then. Perhaps it’s ironic, perhaps sad, or perhaps poetic, but the message of this book is more real and relevant to me today than it was when I wrote it. Let me tell you why…
You can read Fortress’ press release below. And if you subscribe to my Articles, I will make sure you stay updated on everything related to the book and information on pre-ordering.
Please pray that the book will find its way into the hands and hearts of people, like me, who need to be reminded daily that there is a God who forgives and forgets the sins of our yesterdays, todays, and tomorrows—and who won’t stop kicking us into the freedom of being nothing so that Jesus might be everything for us.
Fortress Press Brings Best-Selling Author Back to Print
Tullian Tchividjian had sold over 80,000 copies of Jesus + Nothing = Everything when his life and ministry fell apart; now Fortress Press is publishing a new edition of that book.
MINNEAPOLIS, MN – Tullian Tchividjian, a grandson of Billy Graham, was the pastor of a Florida megachurch when he lost everything in 2015 due to his marital infidelity. When his infidelity surfaced, Tchividjian lost his ministry, and his best-selling book Jesus + Nothing = Everything was taken out of print. After careful consultation with his pastoral counselor and other mentors, Fortress Press is confident that Tchividjian has repented of his past indiscretions and has put himself under the authority of trusted Christian leaders.
“The mission of our organization includes the phrase, ‘to communicate the liberating grace of God,’ and therefore we believe in second chances,” said Tony Jones, Senior Acquisitions Editor at Fortress Press. “None of us is without sin, and Tullian’s message of the radical grace of God is more applicable now than ever—he even needs to hear it himself!”
“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.”
Fortress Press plans to release Jesus + Nothing = Everything in Fall 2018, featuring a new introduction from the author, addressing what has happened in his life since the book was originally published and how the message of God’s grace has sustained him over the past three years and continues to sustain him daily.
