New York Times bestselling author Lysa TerKeursts’ UNGLUED, Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions has risen to the bestselling rankings since its release earlier this week. Unglued debuted at the #1 position on Amazon’s Religion & Spirituality Theology chart (http://www.amazon.com/gp/bestsellers/books/16009861/ref=pd_zg_hrsr_b_1_4_last), while climbing to No. 23 on Amazon’s Top 100 Best Selling Books and No. 8 on the Barnes & Noble (BN.com) charts.
Distributed nationwide by Zondervan, Unglued follows on the heels of TerKeursts’ previous critically-acclaimed read Made to Crave, which held its spot on the New York Times Best Seller list for 30 weeks. Readers are continuing to identify with TerKeurst, as she draws from real-life situations, revealing the sincere and honest emotions voicing the thoughts of thousands of others around the world.
“This is an electrifying entrance for Lysa TerKeurst’s UNGLUED,” said Don Gates, vice president of marketing at Zondervan. “Lysa, with her clever insights and personal stories, has struck a chord with women across the nation. As they read, Lysa will help those of all personality types learn to ‘make wise choices in the midst of raw emotions.’”

“If auditions were held for a replacement for Oprah Winfrey – the early Oprah, who was vulnerable, open, girlfriendly, and not a billionaire – TerKeurst would make a short list.” – Publishers Weekly
“Every Christian woman wants to walk in the Spirit and avoid ungodly outbursts. TerKeurst amusingly shares how.” - Charisma Magazine
“In this timely book Lysa gives us practical keys on how to make choices that lead to life and not death. In order to live an abundant life we need to manage our emotions and not be ruled by them.” – Sheila Walsh, author of God loves Broken People and Those Who Pretend They’re Not
Unglued debunks the age-old excuse that women are ‘just emotional creatures’ by urging them to understand that “emotions are good indicators, not dictators.” By using personal testimonials of her own life, TerKeurst explores the raw emotions that women hide from others but spew on those they love the most. While the reactions can be equally as damaging, TerKeurst explains that the key is being in the middle: honesty that results in soul integrity. Throughout the book, she continues to provide honest insight on how to confront these issues and overcome the struggles of emotions.
In support of her new release, TerKeurst recently appeared at the ICRS convention in Orlando and the BlogHer Conference in New York City, hosting speaking engagements and book signings.
