David Gregory Writing Book on Jewish Faith

david_gregoryPolitico reports recently ousted “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory is writing a book on his Jewish faith set to be released next year.

Gregory and publisher Simon & Schuster have reportedly been working on the book since 2011 that will focus on his “personal faith and the spiritual journey people take in their lives.”

“We weren’t planning to announce the book until we’d set the publication date, which will be sometime in 2015, but since Playbook asked, we’re answering now. Let me emphasize that this book has always been intended as an exploration of an aspect of David’s life that viewers rarely see in his journalistic work. The book was never intended as a memoir about his career. That objective hasn’t changed and will not change. This book will be about the inner spiritual journey many of us take in our lives. Simon & Schuster is excited and grateful to be publishing it.”

The report also suggests Gregory is available for speaking gigs in the fall, where he will touch on “life in the media firestorm and how it impacts politics and culture.” “Meet the Press” paid tribute to Gregory this past Sunday.
