Justin Bieber may have helped boost sales of Pastor Judah Smith’s new book after Justin told his 6.8 million Instagram followers to read Jesus Is ___: Find a New Way to Be Human. The book from The City Church pastor, made available on Amazon on Tuesday, currently holds the no. 1 spot among Christian books on the retailer’s website.
Justin shared an Instagram photo of the cover of Smith’s book Tuesday, writing:
“So proud of my pastor. This book comes out on the 26th. Judah is the best speaker of our generation. Read this book [you] won’t regret it.”
Although Feb. 26 is listed on Amazon as the official publication date for Jesus Is ___, the book went on sale yesterday.

ABOUT THE BOOK
JESUS IS ____.
HOW WOULD YOU FINISH THAT SENTENCE?
The subject is there, and so is the verb, but what comes next? Your answer could shed light on the path to becoming who you were made to be.
In these pages, Judah Smith fills out that sentence again and again, each time further revealing the character of Jesus. He writes as if to a friend, illustrating the importance of Christ’s message to modern men and women. This is a book for new believers, for lifelong followers, and for the merely curious.
Judah Smith shows us the Jesus that somber paintings and hymns fail to capture. With passion, humor, and conviction, he shows that Jesus is life. Jesus is grace. Jesus is your friend. Jesus is a new and better way to be human.
