New York Times bestselling author

with Worthy Publishing in Fall 2018

“Jenkins is a consummate novelist; his plotting is nicely sneaky, his dialogue crackling.” – Publishers Weekly

(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) February 1, 2018 – Jerry B. Jenkins’ books have sold more than 70 million copies, including the phenomenal Left Behind series, minting him as one of the best-selling novelists of his generation. Now, Worthy Publishing is pleased to announce he will be releasing a new fiction series slated for this fall.

Jenkins’ literary contribution to the world of publishing is remarkable – having penned more than 190 books, two-thirds of those novels, including 21 New York Times bestsellers with seven debuting at #1. He is one of the most creative and commercially successful writers of our time.

“Jerry’s influence on Christian publishing can’t be exaggerated,” says Byron Williamson, President and Publisher, Worthy Publishing. “We’re extremely honored to have the opportunity to partner with Jerry at this point in his distinguished career, sharing this inventive new series of books with the world.”

The new series, The Dead Sea Chronicles, tells captivating stories combining provocative current events with ancient adventure, spiritual warfare, and biblical archeology with Da Vinci Code-like flair. The first book in the series, titled Dead Sea Rising, introduces readers to a female New York-based PhD in ancient Near East history, who uncovers antiquities mysteriously tied to biblical patriarch Abraham. Her explosive find threatens to upend everything ever thought about Jewish and Arab relations.

Jenkins owns the Jerry Jenkins Writers Guild coaching thousands of aspiring writers in both fiction and nonfiction.
