undoing-of-saint-silvanusBeth Moore, best-selling author and Bible teacher, has written her debut novel, The Undoing of Saint Silvanus. Tyndale House Publishers will release the book Sept. 20.

Moore, who leads Living Proof Ministries, has seen her videotaped Bible studies and conferences reach millions around the world. Her first title with Tyndale, So Long, Insecurity, reached the New York Times best-sellers list with over 1 million copies of the book and associated products in print since 2010.

Karen Watson, associate publisher of fiction at Tyndale House, said she was proud to partner with Moore on this project.

“The opportunity to watch from the wings as Beth worked on this novel has been a rare privilege,” Watson said. “The Undoing of Saint Silvanus is the work of a gifted storyteller. It is full of heart and humor and hope. Tyndale is honored to partner with Beth to shepherd this story to her existing fans and introduce her to a whole new audience of readers.”

Set in New Orleans, Moore’s novel captures the lives of a wily house manager and the cast of saints and sinners who live in Saint Silvanus. Moore announced the novel’s upcoming release in a video on her blog.

“Even as a child, I loved crawling into a corner from time to time and scribbling something creative,” Moore said. “This was my chance to just go with it. To start weaving a story and see where it would take me.”
