ECPA's Rush To Press

Beloved nonfiction and Bible study author to release debut novel
The Undoing of Saint Silvanus on September 20

CAROL STREAM, Ill. (August 22, 2016) – Beth Moore (@BethMooreLPM), bestselling book and Bible study author and teacher, is one of the most recognized names in the evangelical Christian arena. A resident of Houston, Moore leads Living Proof Ministries and speaks frequently at conferences around the globe.  On September 20, 2016, Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. (@TyndaleHouse), the publisher of many New York Timesbestsellers, will release Moore’s first work of fiction.  Library Journal has called The Undoing of Saint Silvanus ( “beautifully written” and “an absorbing, suspenseful read.”  Set in contemporary New Orleans, The Undoing of Saint Silvanus is the story of an unlikely place, the collection of saints and sinners who pass through its doors, and the God who never gives up on their redemption.

“Even as a child,” comments Moore, “I loved crawling into a corner from time to time and scribbling something creative. My own story is different from Olivia’s and Adella’s and Jillian’s, but parts of it have been just as messy and much of it, equally complicated. I’d like to have been the kind of person who could write a lighter story…but I haven’t lived a story like that. A writer has to be true to her experience, even in fiction.”

In addition to a national media tour, Moore will be signing her debut novel at the following locations:
