NavPress’ “Unwanted” by Jay Stringer earns ECPA’s Bronze Sales Award for surpassing 100,000 books sold

NavPress is pleased to announce that their book Unwanted: How Sexual Brokenness Reveals Our Way to Healing by Jay Stringer received the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association’s (ECPA’s) Milestone Bronze Sales Award for recently surpassing 100,000 books sold.

The book offers insights and applications drawn from rigorous survey research by the author, a licensed mental-health counselor and ordained minister.

“Jay’s research was groundbreaking in approach and results,” offered David Zimmerman, publisher at NavPress. “It drew on first-person reporting from 3,800 people regarding their struggle with sexual brokenness, and Jay was able to look through the stories they shared to the depth of God’s kindness and the path to healing and wholeness.”

In spring of 2019, Unwanted was selected by Outreach Magazine as its Resource of the Year in Counseling and Relationships. Since the book’s release, Stringer has had an unrelenting schedule speaking, teaching, training, and counseling on sexual health. Additionally, Unwanted was recently licensed for a forthcoming release in Spanish.

“Sales have been nicely distributed across print, ebook, and audio,” Zimmerman continued. “It’s a tribute to Jay’s care and craft as a writer that the book serves its readers well in a variety of formats.”
