75,000 “Already Gone” in Print in 4 Months!

July 22, 2009

[The following post was originally published in Ken Ham’s personal blog, “Around the World with Ken Ham.” Ken is the founder and president of Answers in Genesis and the author of numerous books, including  Already Gone published by Master Books.]

On May 27, copies of the first printing of our new book Already Gone arrived in the AiG warehouse. Just over seven weeks later—with four printings and 75,000 in print in just 4 months. As far as we know, no other creation book published by Master Books (the leading creation book publisher in the world) has ever achieved such results.

I have done more interviews (mainly on Christian radio stations—though a few secular ones, too) in recent weeks about Already Gone than any other book we’ve released. (In fact, the only other time I recall such intense media interest was when the Creation Museum opened in May 2007.) When it first came out it was ranked around 500 in sales on Amazon—and consistently for the first few weeks stayed in the 1000–2000 sales rank figures.

We are hearing of churches that are revamping the entire way they teach every age level—how they choose (and now train) teachers for Sunday school. As one pastor said to me recently after reading the book and hearing me speak, “I am going to dissolve everything we do in our church and start all over again.”

There have been many great reviews—here are excerpts from another one we saw on the Internet yesterday:

Ever think a book of statistics could keep you up at night? This one may be it, especially if you’re a parent and/or involved in Christian education.

This book is the result of a collaborative project between Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis and Britt Beemer of America’s Research Group to survey 1,000 young adults who grew up in solid, Bible-teaching churches but have left the church either permanently or temporarily. Typical thinking in Christian circles is that young adults leave the church in college due to teachings and culture that challenges their Christian beliefs. Ham and Beemer’s findings run contrary to this assumption, and they are shocking and disturbing.

You can read the entire review here.

We now also have a DVD, called Already Gone, that goes along with the book. Also, the hour-long State of the Nation DVD deals with the Already Gone statistics, as well as the spiritual problems in the USA (and other nations around the world).

You can obtain copies of Already Gone book and DVD—and The State of the NationDVD—from the AiG Online bookstore. The State of the Nation high quality video is also available for download from the AiG website.
