What were they thinking?

Just when you're starting to feel a little more optimistic about the state of Christian publishing, you hear this:

Lynne Spears's book about raising her famous daughters Britney and Jamie Lynn has been put on hold, the publisher confirms to PEOPLE.

"The book is delayed indefinitely. It's delayed, not cancelled," says a spokeswoman for Thomas Nelson, which publishes inspirational books and Bibles.

Never mind that it's been "delayed indefinitely": What in the name of all that is holy prompted Thomas Nelson to take Britney's mom's guide to parenting in the first place?

Definitely not a role model for my granddaughter. Why does everyone think they have to sell family life and it's problems? What are we going to learn from Brittany's mother, what not to do.


Their family motto should certainly be "Semper ubi sub ubi."


Now we know why:


This sounds like a book style "puff piece" as even before the pregnancy,
.... the editors seemed to be trading on the rather dubious but well-known Spears name

A sad situation all around - and Thomas Nelson (which should know better) now looks rather foolish-----
