"Lysa TerKeurst is completely in tune with the desires and needs of her audience," said Brian Hampton, senior vice president and publisher at Nelson Books.
The goals of the publisher and of Christian retail stores are well-matched: "putting life-changing content in the hands of Christian women (and men)," Hampton said.
Hampton of Nelson Books sees TerKeurst as one of the few authors who will open their lives to their readers.
"Some Christian authors aren't willing to share their personal struggles in their books," he said.
"She is a student of her audience and of publishing; she is so smart and engaging," Hampton said. "After more than two decades in the industry, Lysa and her team have caused me to think in new ways about how Christian nonfiction books 'work,' what bonds reader to author and what kind of writing truly delivers value to the reader."

"We're hoping Christian stores continue their already strong partnership with us, giving The Best Yes the kind of attention and support such a sales track record merits," Hampton said.
