Jen Grant Releases Two New Books

Jacket of  Disquiet Time Jennifer Grant, a member of the National Society of Newspaper Columnists, has not one but two books out this fall.

Disquiet Time: Rants and Reflections on the Good Book by the Skeptical, the Faithful, and a Few Scoundrels (Hachette/Jericho Books), co-edited by religion columnist Cathleen Falsani, has an Oct. 21 release date.

It is endorsed by progressive theologians including Phyllis Tickle and Matthew Paul Turner, former head of the White House Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships Joshua DuBois, and by late night talk show host Pete Holmes.

The collection has 40-some contributors including Grant.

Jacket of Wholehearted LivingGrant’s other new release, Wholehearted Living: Reflections for Modern Moms (Loyola Press, Nov. 1) is a daybook for women.

Grant notes that she was asked to approach the 366 (one for leap year) entries as though each was a short newspaper column for women. Every reflection begins with a line of poetry, quote, or snippet of wisdom and addresses topics as diverse as managing loneliness and grief, practicing mindfulness, and remembering how to play.

Jennifer is the author of two previous works of nonfiction: Love You More and MOMumental. Find out more at
