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."

Duck Dynasty is getting serious.
When the A&E show ends its fifth season Wednesday night, it will focus on Mia Robertson, the 10-year-old daughter of Jase and Missy Robertson, who was born with a cleft palate and received corrective surgery, which is documented in the show.
"You're gonna go from gut-wrenching laughter to crying, because it's very sweet," Missy tells PEOPLE.
