Tyndale Momentum Announces Book Signings for New Orleans Saints Tight End Benjamin Watson


CAROL STREAM, Ill. (November 3, 2015) — Benjamin Watson (@BenjaminSWatson), a veteran tight end for the NFL’s New Orleans Saints, has rapidly become one of the most well-respected voices in American culture. His heartfelt and thoughtful essays on cultural hot topics such as the shooting of Michael Brown by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, and the mass killing of churchgoers in Charleston, South Carolina, have sparked national discussions on race, class, and religion.

On November 17, 2015, Tyndale Momentum—an imprint of Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. (@TyndaleHouse), and the publisher of many New York Times bestsellers—will release Watson’s first book. Under Our Skin: Getting Real about Race—and Getting Free from the Fears and Frustrations that Divide Us (@watsonbook), which Watson has written with Ken Peterson, will give voice to the passionate and often conflicting feelings so many have about problems of race in our country, and it will offer wise and balanced reflections on issues and behavior on all sides that need to be examined in the light of truth. Watson offers a balanced approach and a challenging perspective for us all.
