Lysa TerKeurst’s Good Boundaries and Goodbyes, which debuted at #2 in November and fell to #3 in December, has finally reached the top spot on PW’s Religion Nonfiction Bestsellers list. The title, which TerKeurst described as a guide to “loving others without losing the best of who you are” while speaking to PW, is being promoted on, a women’s ministry led by TerKeurst, as well as along the author’s multi-city book tour. TerKeurst appears on the list again at #8 with 2020’s Forgiving What You Can’t Forget.

Slipping down one spot since last month, Fox News host Harris Faulkner’s Faith Still Moves Mountains comes in at #2 in Religion Nonfiction for January. The book collects accounts of miraculous events, and it continues to benefit from promotions across all Fox News channels and platforms.

The New Year is often used as an opportunity for readers to set resolutions and establish new daily habits. Several yearlong devotionals ranked on our Religion Nonfiction Bestsellers list in January: Sarah Young’s Jesus Calling comes in at #3, followed by Mission Possible One Year Devotional by Tim Tebow at #5. Finally, Kimberly Moore’s Bible study for women, The Bible in 52 Weeks, comes in at #7.

Marking its debut on the list, Bible Prophecy: The Essentials by Israeli author Amir Tsarfati and California-based pastor Barry Stagner lands at #9 on the list. The book, which addresses 70 most commonly asked questions about what the Bible says regarding the future, was promoted to Tsarfati’s over 23K followers on Twitter. End Times and topics around biblical prophecy are of interest to both readers and Christian publishers, PW reported last year.

Redeeming Love, a romance novel by Francine Rivers published in 2005, remains #1 in Religion Fiction for the second month in a row. Last year’s film adaptation of the bestselling book spark a renewed interest in it. Rivers also takes positions #7 and #8 on the list with more recent releases, The Lady’s Mine (2022) and A Lineage of Grace (2009), respectively.
