Five-time Grammy® nominated artist Matthew West announces his sixth book, “The God Who Stays,” set for release on September 6. Published by W. Publishing Group, an imprint of HarperCollins Christian Publishing, the new book is an engaging and thoughtful exploration, balanced with West’s trademark wit and humor, that helps us reconnect to the Biblical truth that God is with us. In his most personal book to date, West was inspired by the dramatic events of 2020 to go on a spiritual journey of rediscovery and revival inspired by the words of his hit song “The God Who Stays.” For more information visit www.matthewwest.com/thegodwhostays.
