This summer, Sen. Tim Scott will release a memoir explaining how hope and redemption have shaped his life so far.
The truth of these truths will always shine through no matter how dark the darkness,” the South Carolina Republican said in a statement released Tuesday through Thomas Nelson Publishers. Even though there are hard moments in this book, I have attempted to depict a story that evokes the beauty, magic, and wonder of life. Because this is how we are supposed to live.”
“America, A Redemption Story” is scheduled for release by Thomas Nelson, an imprint of HarperCollins Christian Publishing, in August. Scott is up for re-election in November.
When his parents divorced, Scott, 56, shared a single bedroom with his mother and brother. The Charleston city councilman was elected in 1995 and continued to rise steadily for the next two decades until he was selected by then-Gov. Nikki Haley to replace Jim DeMint in the U.S. Senate in 2013.
Despite being the only Black Republican senator in the Senate, Scott has been rumored to run for president. The 2020 Republican National Convention brought him to the forefront, and he recently delivered the party’s response to President Joe Biden’s first address to Congress.
He has written several previous books, including “Opportunity Knocks: How Hard Work, Community, and Business Can Improve Lives and End Poverty,” which was published in 2020.
