Jesus Calling® Ranked #1 On Wall Street Journal Bestseller List

NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The award-winning devotional that has inspired a generation recently surpassed a milestone:  Jesus Calling ® is now ranked #1 on the Wall Street Journal Non Fiction Bestseller list at the same time it surpasses 8 million in sales.

"What an honor it is to watch God at work, drawing people closer to Him through the pages of this book," said Laura Minchew, Senior Vice President and Publisher of Specialty Products at Thomas Nelson. "It is truly inspiring to hear from so many whose lives have been transformed through a personal and peaceful relationship with Christ."

Jesus Calling ® was born after years of writing in missionary Sarah Young writing in her prayer journal and feeling led to write down what she believed God was telling her. In 2004, Young's words were compiled into a devotional written in the perspective of Jesus speaking directly to the reader. The 365-day devotional has since appeared consistently on the Wall Street Journal, Publisher's Weekly, USA Today, and ECPA bestseller lists. Young's bestselling title has also been featured in USA Today, Publishers Weekly, and Christianity Today – just to name a few.

The Jesus Calling® brand, a world-recognized inspirational line of products that has now sold over eight million products. Jesus Calling has been translated into 18 languages and has inspired products in multiple formats: eBooks, apps, audio books, calendars and CD's. Young's other works include Jesus Today, Jesus Lives and Dear Jesus, children's 365 day devotional Jesus Calling for Kids, the Jesus Calling Devotional Bible, and a Spanish translation of the original devotional book, Jesus Te Llama.

Sarah Young is quietly leading millions of men and women worldwide on a journey of intimacy with Christ. She received her bachelor's in philosophy from Wellesley College, a master's in child development from Tufts University, and a master's in counseling and biblical studies from Covenant Theological Seminary. She also earned a specialist's degree (one year beyond a master's degree) in community counseling at Georgia State University and studied under Francis Schaeffer at L'Abri in Switzerland. Sarah and her husband have traveled extensively, planting churches and counseling. They currently are living in Australia, where they are ministering to Japanese people and helping establish an international church. They have two married children and two grandchildren.
