- Lecrae will release his new book, 'I Am Restored: How I Lost My Religion but Found My Faith,' on October 13, 2020.
Two-time Grammy award-winning hip-hop artist and multi-hyphenate Lecrae will release his new book, I Am Restored: How I Lost My Religion but Found My Faith, on October 13, 2020, via Zondervan.
In I Am Restored, Lecrae shares how growing stronger in his faith has helped him create transformation in the lives of others. Lecrae bares his soul, sharing deep wounds, past trauma, and conflicts with family, church, and personal challenges in hopes that his process of restoration will help others.
“My forthcoming album, Restoration, chronicles the process of healing, and my book, I Am Restored, is about the journey toward healing,” said Lecrae. “My prayer is that I Am Restored will inspire readers to embrace the freedom and healing they need and to escape the despair, anxiety, doubt, and fear so many of us battle.”
In his first book Unashamed he dived into the adversities experienced in his life from childhood abuse, drugs, alcoholism, a stint in rehab, abortion, growing up fatherless, and an unsuccessful suicide attempt. The book released in 2016 and became a New York Times bestseller.
“We need more artists willing to break barriers like Lecrae,” says Mick Silva, Senior Acquisitions Editor, Zondervan Books. “His story of allowing trauma and deep personal struggles to break the barriers within himself ultimately shows where his deep faith comes from. I believe his voice could be prophetic for our time.”
Lecrae has earned two Grammy awards, an RIAA Gold-certified album, Anomaly, which topped Billboard’s coveted Top 200 Albums chart.
Lecrae is represented by Margaret Riley King and Mel Berger of WME Entertainment. North American and non-exclusive open market rights were acquired by Senior Acquisitions Editor Mick Silva.
