Grand Rapids, Mich., May 9, 2016 — Ann Voskamp, the New York Times bestselling author of One Thousand Gifts (February 2011, Zondervan) with more than one million copies sold will release her next major trade book with Zondervan. The Broken Way: The Path to the Abundant Life will have an October 25 street date and was acquired by Sandra Vander Zicht, associate publisher & executive editor. Voskamp’s agent is Bill Jensen of William K Jensen Literary Agency.

“Because of the genuine relationships, the investment of thoughtful time and simply a profound excellence at every level, there was this deep peace in accepting Zondervan’s offer to be the home that launches The Broken Way out into a broken and hungry  world,” said Voskamp. “Honestly, there’s this great anticipation for all that He has around the corner. Brokenness is a kind of new wholeness and there’s never been any other way. There’s never been any other authentic way forward.”

Following on the same themes as One Thousand GiftsThe Broken Way guides the suffering into a happiness only the hurting can know. Through failures, relapses, sacrifice and service, readers discover how to continuously make Christ present – by breaking themselves and giving themselves away. Voskamp presents the Gospel in a fresh way for readers in need of a revelation of the grace of God, a message essential for now.

“Ann is an inspiration to all of us at Zondervan. We are thankful and blessed for the gift of publishing Ann’s next book,” says David Morris, vice president and publisher of Zondervan books. “We are eager to see God’s plans for The Broken Way and continue to see lives changed through Ann’s writing.”
