Tyndale to Publish Gayle Haggard Memoir

Tyndale House Publishers is to publish a memoir by Gayle Haggard, wife of the former president of the National Association of Evangelicals, Ted Haggard.

In Why I Stayed, to be released in January 2010, she will share a message of forgiveness and love regarding her husband, also the founder and ex-senior pastor of New Life Church in Colorado Springs, Colo.—whose confession to sexual immorality in November 2006 led to his downfall.

"When we met with Gayle, we realized God was already using her story to touch the lives of thousands of people," said Jon Farrar, Tyndale's nonfiction acquisition director. "We knew this story needed to be heard in its entirety. It's an amazing story of the choices Gayle made in her darkest hours and how less-than-perfect people everywhere desperately need a community that provides healing and a path to restoration."

After reading the manuscript, Tyndale President Mark Taylor said he "was very moved by Gayle's story. It is a beautiful—though heart-wrenching—story of how (with the grace of God) she chose to love Ted, save her marriage and protect her family."

Tyndale will launch Why I Stayed, to be co-written by Angela Hunt, with a national promotional campaign, including an author tour.
