“Justin Bieber: ambassador of Christ” will be the focus of a new non-fiction book set to be released September for his adoring fans.
American journalist Cathleen Falsani, award-winning columnist known for her extensive coverage on religion, will release on September 27 “Belieber! Faith, Fame and the Heart of Justin Bieber", a book based on the 17-year-old’s faith according to his interviews and messages to his fans.
In a the book trailer Falsani has said that “the book explores, first of all what Justin has said about his faith, how he communicates that with his fans whether is on twitter or through a song, a video and an interview, and then also how his fan’s react to it and what it has said in their lives and how instructive or influential it has been in the lives of these young people.”
The Canadian-born pop star’s comments have ranged from: “Jesus loves every one of you!” to conservative views on drugs, sex, and abortion; all stemming from his Christian faith and devotion to Jesus.
Earlier this month he declared in front of millions of people after taking home Teen Choice Award for best male artist: “I want to say that anything is possible. ... You got to keep God first and always remember to keep family first. Jesus loves every one of you!”
When Sean Kingston was involved in a freak Jet Ski accident in Florida Bieber tweeted asking his fans to pray for the singer.
While girls (and adults alike) are catching Bieber Fever, Falsani examined that young fans are also becoming “Beliebers.”
A girl commented “I think that it’s a great thing for this culture to have a very huge artist that loves the Lord.”
Falsani points out that because of him young girls are tweeting comments such as: “The way you talk about your faith has made me believe in God and I didn’t think God existed before.”
Falsani believes that Bieber above all his fame is having a conversation with the world about God without necessarily sounding preachy.
Falsani has said that opening a point of entry to talk about important things such as faith, God, love and grace and different beliefs, without preaching to people, is a primary goal for many parents.
