LEFT BEHIND Author Jerry B. Jenkins Pens Novel Based on THE CHOSEN
By Movieguide® Staff
Jerry B. Jenkins, author of best-selling LEFT BEHIND series, has written a novel based on THE CHOSEN series that was created by his son, Dallas Jenkins.
Though THE CHOSEN is based on the Bible, the novel will focus on the characters developed in the first season of the hit TV show.
According to the book synopsis, “The Chosen” novel will consider, “What was it like to encounter Jesus face-to-face? How would he have made you feel, changed your way of thinking about God? Would he have turned your world upside down? Journey to Galilee in the first century. See the difference he made in the lives of those he called to follow him and how they were forever transformed. Experience the life and power of the perfect Son of God as never before through the eyes of everyday people just like you.”
The book is available for pre-order now and will debut on March 2. The book is already ranked on multiple best-selling lists on Amazon, including Christian Historical Fiction and Religious Historical Fiction.
Jenkins is perhaps best well known for his work on the LEFT BEHIND books and movies.
THE CHOSEN season 2 is filming now. The series is a unique take on the biblical stories of Jesus and His disciples.
Dallas Jenkins attended the 28th Annual Movieguide® Awards Gala and Report to the Entertainment Industry in 2020 to be honored for his work on Season 1. Jonathan Roomie, who plays Jesus in THE CHOSEN, won the Grace Prize® for Most Inspiring Television Performance.
