CrashTheChatterboxPastor Steven Furtick’s latest book, Crash the Chatterbox: Hearing God’s Voice Above All Others (Multnomah Books), has made its debut at No. 19 on the March 2 New York Times Advice, How-To & Miscellaneous best-seller list.  Rankings on the list reflect sales for the week ending Feb. 15, the book’s first week of release.

Furtick is the lead pastor of Elevation Church in Charlotte, the largest congregation in North Carolina. Crash the Chatterbox is his third book and his second New York Times best-seller after Greater (Multnomah, 2012). In his latest book, Furtick tackles the topic of negative self-talk—what he calls “the chatterbox”—and offers help to overcoming damaging internal dialogue.

In celebration of the new book’s Feb. 11 release, Furtick hosted an eight-hour online radio broadcast where he answered questions from readers and was joined by a number of high-profile guests, including Pastor Craig Groeschel of LifeChurch.tv, GRAMMY-winning singer Mandisa and Proverbs 31 President Lysa TerKeurst.

Multnomah Books has produced with Westar Media a series of audio features that will run on hundreds of Christian radio stations across the country in March.  It has also initiated a focused social media campaign through crashthechatterbox.com, and Crash the Chatterbox pages on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.
