Harvest House Publishers celebrates banner season

Two Current Titles Recognized as Bestsellers

Eugene, Oregon (September 30, 2019)Harvest House celebrates a successful season with two bestselling books, paving the way for major releases in 2020.

Beholding and Becoming by Ruth Chou Simons hit two bestseller lists, including a #8 position on the Wall Street Journal “Hardcover Nonfiction” list, as well as #7 on the Publishers Weekly “Hardcover Nonfiction” list.

With more than 850 pieces of stunning original artwork, Beholding and Becoming is an intimate exploration of the many ways we can experience God more fully in our ordinary lives. “My desire with this project,” said Simons, “was to surprise and wow the reader by providing an innovative way to become what we behold by fixing our eyes on what Scripture ultimately calls us to—engaging with God’s eternal purposes.”

Ruth Chou Simons continues to be a favorite among readers; her previous title GraceLaced won the 2018 Christian Book Award® in the Devotion & Gift category.

Risen Motherhood by Emily Jensen and Laura Wifler charted on thePublishers Weekly list as the #6 “Hardcover Nonfiction” bestseller for the period ending September 7, 2019.

In their debut book, sisters-in-law Jensen and Wifler—cohosts of the chart-topping Risen Motherhood podcast—share how the gospel transforms every facet of motherhood, from the mundane moments to the big decisions. “As women with a firsthand understanding of the pressures moms face, we desire for Risen Motherhood to bring them hope and freedom in every aspect of motherhood, equipping them to flourish right where they’re at,” said Jensen and Wifler.

“We’re honored to see our authors continue to connect in meaningful ways with their readers,” said Bob Hawkins, president of Harvest House Publishers. “We look forward to bringing more life-changing books to the marketplace.”

New titles coming in 2020 from the publisher include In Unison by CCM artist Jeremy Camp and wife Adrienne Camp, plus new titles from Amir Tsarfati, Tony Evans, James Merritt, Donna VanLiere, Gloria Furman, Naomi Zacharias McNeil, among many others.
