Via a video featuring the song "Brave Surrender" from her 2017 solo album On My Side, Jesus Culture's Kim Walker-Smith recently announced that her long-awaited book will be released April 2, 2019. In the video, a woman seems to be preparing for her personal devotions by arranging some books on a coffee table and pouring herself a cup of pour-over coffee. The woman removes the top books from the pile to reveal the cover of Brave Surrender as the book's namesake song swells to its chorus in the background. "I am so happy to share my story, my redemption through Jesus, and the reason why I worship in my book Brave Surrender. It comes out April 2 everywhere and it WILL be available on audio," Walker-Smith shares.
Fans and fellow artists alike have flocked to the post to express excitement and encouragement. "Doesn't get much better than this," Chris Tomlin wrote. Worship singer/songwriter Christy Nockels also chimed in: "Wow, BEAUTIFUL!!! So proud of you! God is going to use this so powerfully!"
The book's full title is Brave Surrender: Let God's Love Rewrite Your Story. Part of the book's synopsis on Amazon reads: "Brave Surrender is the story of how Kim journeyed from a place of shame and fear to stages around the world where she boldly proclaims the unconditional love of God. Through her own story, Kim inspires us to experience true freedom and healing with Jesus." Brave Surrender is available for pre-order now.
