A Fond Farewell to Jacob

UPDATE: Writing Jacob was an incredible experience, but, should you still be able to find a copy somewhere, I would not recommend you buy it or use it. I did not have very good hermeneutics when I wrote it and it will not teach you to handle God’s Word properly.

I do not plan to rewrite or re-release Jacob. You can find all of my other (and much better!) Bible studies for women -for free- in the Bible Studies tab in the blue menu bar at the top of this page.


Yesterday, I got word from my publisher that they are taking my book, “Jacob: Journaling the Journey” out of print due to low sales.

I just wanted to say thanks to those of you who bought a copy or wrote a review. As you know, all of my author royalties from book sales go to the International Mission Board to take the gospel to an unreached people group in the Middle East. So, my Bedouins thank you, too. (You can still donate to the designated fund for this UPG if you like. Just click on the Unreached People Group tab at the top of this page and follow the directions.)

I’m not sure at this point whether or not I will try to place “Jacob” with another publisher, or self-publish it, or look into other options. The publication process can be long and arduous. As for my blog and social media, everything will remain the same except that my book won’t be available for purchase.

Thanks again to all of you for your loyal readership and friendship on social media. I may not know all of you personally, but you are still an encouragement and a blessing to me, as I hope to be to you.

  1. I’m sorry to hear this Michelle. Writing is tough in any case and solid Christian books are even tougher, except for the few well knowns. God sees your faithfulness and it will accomplish all that He has for it.

    Don’t be disheartened (if you were a little 🙂 )


  2. I thought you said you would not recommend us to get Jacob because of the Hermeneutics.?. But at the end of your article you recommend for us to buy it from Kindle or give it to people so please tell me which is it because I would like to read it if it’s something I will learn something from I’m confused
