W Publishing Group, an imprint of Thomas Nelson Publishing, today announced a one-book deal with bestselling author John Bevere. The Awe of God: The Astounding Way a Healthy Fear of God Transforms Your Life is slated to go on-sale in February 2023. Bevere is represented by Esther Fedorkevich of The Fedd Agency. World rights were acquired by W Publishing Senior Acquisitions Editor Kyle Olund.
Along with his wife, Lisa, Bevere is the co-founder of Messenger International—a ministry committed to revolutionizing global discipleship.
“We are honored to lock arms with John and Messenger International to shepherd this important message to the world,” said Damon Reiss, Vice President and Publisher, W Publishing Group. “This book, full of John’s trademark bold, scriptural teaching, promises to be a positive disruption for readers looking for true intimacy with God.”
In The Awe of God, Bevere invites readers to take a fresh look at what it means to work out your salvation with fear and trembling. This healthy, holy, and largely forgotten virtue is the uncommon path to a more fulfilled and fruitful life. Written in 42 short chapters, readers are encouraged to go through it one day at time, or one chapter in the morning and another that evening. Each chapter contains “5 P’s” for reflection and application: Passage, Point, Ponder, Prayer, Profess.
Bevere is an international bestselling author who has written more than 20 books that have, collectively, sold millions of copies and been translated into 129 languages. Bevere lives in Franklin, TN, where you’ll find him loving on his grandbabies, playing pickleball, or trying to convince Lisa to take up golf.
