Justin Bieber posted an Instagram photo of the new book Jesus Is: Find a New Way To Be Human, by Judah Smith, expressing support for Christianity as well as the book’s author.

“So proud of my pastor,” Bieber wrote in a caption under the image. “This book comes out on the 26th. Judah is the best speaker of our generation. Read this book u won’t regret it.”

Bieber’s message went out to his more than seven million Instagram followers, and now Jesus Is: Find a New Way to be Human ranks no. 6 out of all Christian books among Amazon.com’s Best Sellers.

Smith and his wife, Chelsea, are pastors of The City Church in Seattle, a megachurch with an attendance in excess of 6,000 people every Sunday, Christian Post reports. Smith, 34, has delivered a number of sermons that begin with “Jesus is…,” with the intention of giving a fuller picture of Jesus. Check out a few minutes of the video below in which Smith demonstrates his unique style during the Passion 2013 in Atlanta.
