Close friends and South Carolina Congressmen Tim Scott and Trey Gowdy to release Indivisible: Overcoming Our Differences, One Friendship at a Time on April 3, 2018
Carol Stream, Ill. (July 11, 2017) – Tyndale House Publishers has announced that Tyndale Momentum has acquired U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-South Carolina) and U.S. Representative Trey Gowdy (R-South Carolina) and the two close friends and members of Congress are joining forces to release Indivisible: Overcoming Our Differences, One Friendship at a Time (ISBN 978-1-4964-3041-0, HC $26.99).
Tyndale has scheduled their joint memoir to release April 3, 2018. In addition, The Indivisible Challenge: A Six-Week Guide to True Reconciliation—One Friendship at a Time (978-1-4964-3068-7, SC $12.99), a small group guide for bridging racial, ethnic and other divides in a community, will release in April 2018 as well. The two-book deal was negotiated by Greg Johnson, President of WordServe Literary.
Tim Scott and Trey Gowdy have a collective goal to start a reconciliation movement. Scott, a black U.S. Senator, and Gowdy, a white member of the U.S. House of Representatives, first met in the fall of 2010, when they entered Congress as freshmen. Their journey toward a deep friendship has blossomed despite their different backgrounds, viewpoints, and stances on certain issues. After the Charleston Emmanuel AME church-shooting in their home state of South Carolina, they became determined to foster healing and reconciliation across racial, ethnic, ideological and other divides in our country. Scott and Gowdy model for us what moving toward reconciliation and true friendship can look like.
During the past several years, our nation has witnessed an increase in unrest. As we grapple with finding a way forward, the story of Tim Scott and Trey Gowdy’s friendship provides a beacon of hope in an increasingly apprehensive world. Their book, and companion study guide, will provide a positive step toward reconciliation.
Here’s the cover:
Super-exciting! Will you be buying it?
Trey Gowdy, who has the respect and admiration of many Americans, along with Tim Scott, who’s shown to be another one of the good guys, has put together a collaboration that should be well worth reading.
After our former president spent eight years successfully creating so much racial and political division, followed by the Dems, the anti-Trumpers, the antifa and the BLM, all antagonists, adding fuel to the fire this year, any assistance on bridging that division can only help this country.
It will be interesting to see how this joint effort pans out in book form, but the gentleness of Scott, and the eloquence of Gowdy ought to make for a great combination.
