Zondervan is banking on the people who made pastor Timothy Keller and philosopher Dallas Willard bestselling Christian authors will reach for new titles created from their writings even after their deaths.

The fourth devotional of prayers and short readings under Keller's name, Forward in Love: A Year of Daily Readings from Timothy Keller, will be released in the U.S. in October. It was published last year by Keller's U.K. publisher, edited in conjunction with his estate, Zondervan v-p and publisher Webster Younce told PW.

The new book draws from earlier books including The Reason for God (2009), The Prodigal God (2011), The Meaning of Marriage (2013), Walking with God through Pain and Suffering (2015), and more, according to the publisher.

Before his death in May 2023, Keller, the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York, authored more than 21 books, selling more than six million copies. The Evangelical Christian Publishers Association gave him its highest honor, the Pinnacle Award, in 2022.

The Dallas Willard title, The Scandal of the Kingdom: How the Parables of Jesus Revolutionize Life with God, also publishing in October, is all never-before-released material, edited under the direction of his daughter, Becky Heatley.

Willard, who died in 2013, was a University of Southern California philosophy professor and evangelical Christian who wrote about spirituality in books such as The Divine Conspiracy: Rediscovering Our Hidden Life In God (Harper, 1998).

Younce predicted in a press release that the new book, an analysis of Jesus' parables written with their application in mind, is a follow-up on The Divine Conspiracy that "will leave no reader unchanged." Willard, who wrote several titles and an audio series on the parables, writes that Jesus' parables "provided people the opportunity to take responsibility for opening the door to their heart, seeking the truth and hunting for even more truth. Teaching in parables helped him give people a vision of how life in the kingdom of God fit into their everyday, ordinary life.”
