Hachette Has Found God

In a move that will surprise no one, Hachette has bought another publishing house—Worthy Publishing Group, which specializes in Christian-themed books, including Jeremiah’s Study Bible; The World Jesus Knew; and a Mike Huckabee book slated for Fall 2018.

Located in Nashville, Tenn., Worthy will join the Museum of Bible Books as Elle Claire as the Christian wing of Hachette’s ever-growing empire.

In a press release, Hachette Nashville publisher Rolf Zettersten said, “I have the utmost respect for the experience, instincts, and insights of Byron Williamson and his team, and I know that adding Hachette Book Group’s strength and expertise in sales, marketing, and support systems will allow us to grow their business more aggressively.”

Zettersten is one of the leaders of the faith-based imprints on Hachette’s list, which includes authors such as Joel Osteen and Joyce Meyer.
