Here’s the latest from the crossroads of faith, media & culture: 06/24/22 I interrupt my blogging break (I’ll be back Monday, July 21) for this comment on today’s historic Supreme Court abortion decision.

Shannon’s Deal. Fox News Books, the hot new publishing imprint of Fox News Media, is rolling out its fourth book on March 29th. Mothers and Daughters of the Bible Speak: Lessons on Faith from Nine Biblical Families follows up on the success of last year’s The Women of the Bible Speak which was also written by Fox News @ Night anchor Shannon Bream.
In making the announcement, Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott Ms. Scott also noted the overall success of Fox News Books, saying “It has been remarkable to see Fox News Books flourish, selling more than one million copies in just over a year, which is more evidence of the power of Fox News Media and the connection we have with our loyal, engaged audience. We are exceptionally proud to debut our first franchise, capitalizing on Shannon’s highly insightful Women of the Bible series, this time focusing on the mothers and daughters.”
For her part, Bream, who I interviewed in March, beamed “Watching the success of The Women of the Bible Speak was a highlight of my career and an experience for which I am forever grateful. During the challenging year of the pandemic, hearing the feedback from readers across the country was an inspiration for me to continue in my journey of sharing the stories that I love and have helped me through hard times. I am ecstatic to continue on this journey as the first franchise author for Fox News Books.”
Her new book will examine the lives of biblical women to see how God’s plans can turn our worlds upside down through stories that explain the intimate connection between faith and family. Showcasing God’s unexpected agenda, the stories selected by Bream will reflect on the imperfections and bonds between mothers and daughters who either followed God’s will or chose their own paths.
Fox News Books launched in November 2020 with Pete Hegseth’s Modern Warriors which was also featured here. Bream’s The Women of the Bible Speak arrived in March 2021, followed by All-American Christmas authored by Rachel Campos-Duffy and Sean Duffy in November. All the titles placed atop national bestseller lists. Notably, The Women of the Bible Speak appeared on the New York Times bestseller list for 15 weeks in a row, notching five weeks in the number one spot and was the 10th best-selling book for adult nonfiction in 2021 according to Nielsen BookScan.
A redemptive tail. The buddy comedy DOG follows the misadventures of two former Army Rangers paired against their will on the road trip of a lifetime. Army Ranger Briggs (Channing Tatum) and Lulu (a Belgian Malinois dog) buckle into a 1984 Ford Bronco and race down the Pacific Coast in hopes of making it to a fellow soldier’s funeral on time. Along the way, they’ll drive each other completely crazy, break a small handful of laws, narrowly evade death, and learn to let down their guards in order to have a fighting chance of finding happiness. The promising film is set to debut in theaters February 18th. Check out the trailer below.
