    The book was set to come out in July, but Bethany House announced via Twitter that they have decided to cancel the publication. 

    Bethany House explained in the tweet that it may take sometime for websites to remove the book, but it won't actually be available. 

    On Friday, a woman named Jules Woodson came forward with allegations against Savage. The accusations stemmed from an alleged sexual assault in 1998, when Savage was a college student on staff at Woodlands Parkway Baptist Church in Texas.
