CAMPBELLSVILLE, KY - What if tomorrow, mixed in among the bills, notices and bargain flyers in your mailbox, was a letter from Jesus?

Edward Goble, admissions marketing specialist at Campbellsville University, has attempted to make that scenario a reality in his book "Sincerely, Jesus" which is among the all-time best sellers in the Bible Studies area of iTunes Books.

"Sincerely, Jesus" peaked at No. 6 in the United States and has reached No. 1 in the Bible Study category in Nicaragua, Honduras and Switzerland. In Nicaragua, it reached No. 187 among all books on iTunes. It reached No. 2 in Norway, New Zealand and Australia in the Bible Study category.

"Sincerely, Jesus," made it into the top 10 in 14 different countries, and the book has been in the Top 40 most of 2014 in the United States.

"Sincerely, Jesus" is a personal application focused look at chapters two and three of Revelation where Jesus dictates to the Apostle John letters to seven churches scattered across Asia Minor. Goble wrote "Sincerely, Jesus" to help readers apply the truths of the letters to their lives today, some 2,000 years after the originals were written.

"I get notes from all over the world from people who are reading the book and giving a copy to their pastor or buying 10 or 20 copies for a home group Bible Study," Goble said.

"I just want to thank God for taking this simple book all over the world and hopefully using it to draw people into a deeper relationship with Him. If one or two people out of all those readers have a life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ, then it will be the greatest thing that I could ever imagine," Goble said.

"Sincerely, Jesus" has sold over 130,000 copies so far, and is available for sale in at least 16 countries. Goble has written one other Christian non-fiction book, "And No Religion, Too: Thoughts on the Spectator Church," and two novels, "Both Ways" and "Less of Me," which he describes as Pre-Christian.

His action/adventure novel, "Less of Me," reached number 13 in the mainstream fiction in the same category as John Grisham, Tom Clancy and James Patterson.

Campbellsville University is a widely acclaimed Kentucky-based Christian university with more than 3,500 students offering 63 undergraduate options, 17 master's degrees, five postgraduate areas and eight pre-professional programs. The website for complete information is
