When it comes to Man Stuff, you apparently can tell a book by its cover.
The jacket of Josh Turner's new book features a photo – originally shot for a 2011 issue of PEOPLE Country's Hottest Guys issue – of the singer draped with his boys Hampton, now 7½, Colby, almost 5, and Marion, who just turned 3. His wide grin, deep dimple and rough scruff no doubt caught plenty of admiring eyes, but his designation as Hottest Dad and thoughts on fatherhood also piqued the interest of religious publisher Thomas Nelson.
"That story got them interested in me, my lifestyle and how I live my life and faith," the rural South Carolina native, who grew up attending the Union Baptist Church in Hannah, S.C., three times a week, tells PEOPLE. "It appealed to me, and got me excited because it allowed me to open up and share stories and lessons that I probably wouldn't have otherwise shared."

Chalk one up to father's intuition: After going through two pregnancies with wife Jennifer, Josh Turner knows a little something about expectant mothers, so when he noticed her acting "a little different" he encouraged her to take a pregnancy test.
"She did and it was negative, but I refused to believe it," he tells PEOPLE exclusively. "So when she took another and told me she's pregnant, all I could say was, 'I told you!' and she was floored." Baby number three for the couple will arrive early next year.

Josh Turner was praying for a good song but ended up with an even better gift, he tells PEOPLE.
"I was in town writing songs one day and had been praying for something good to happen," he says. "We did write a song and it wasn't that great, but when I came home, my wife, Jennifer, and (2-year old son) Hampton were playing and she told me she was pregnant again. Man, I was speechless! It was like, 'Wow, we're doing this again!' "
The singer, who is up for an Academy of Country Music award in April, says that the idea of parenthood the second time around isn't nearly as daunting.
