Abingdon Press is pulling the book “Strong for a Moment Like This: The Daily Devotions of Hillary Rodham Clinton” by Hillary Clinton’s pastor and spiritual advisor, Rev. Bill Shillady, citing the discovery of extensive plagiarism. Clinton wrote a foreward to the book and appears on the book’s cover.

The plagiarism was initially discovered when CNN ran an excerpt of the book that bore similarities to another pastor’s blog. Shillady apologized at the time, citing absentmindedness in attribution, but Abingdon Press told CNN Tuesday that they were "alarmed to discover other content unattributed by the author."

Rev. Brian Milford, the president and publisher of The United Methodist Publishing House, which owns Abingdon Press, told CNN that "Abingdon Press has zero tolerance for plagiarism. Consequently, we have discontinued sales, will remove existing copies from all sales outlets, and will have them destroyed along with our existing inventory."

The book was based on emails of spiritual guidance that Shillady sent to Clinton from April 2015 through December 2016.
