Jerry Falwell Jr. has announced he's writing a new book with an unlikely political partner: former President Jimmy Carter.
“We just started working on it,” Falwell Jr., the president of Liberty University, told reporters on Wednesday at the Washington premiere of conservative activist Dinesh D’Souza’s film, “Death of a Nation.”
“It’ll take a year, I bet,” Falwell told ITK about an estimated release date.
Other details about the joint venture weren't immediately available.
A spokesman for Simon & Schuster, the publisher behind Carter’s most recent book — “Faith,” released in March — didn’t immediately return a request for comment.
Carter, 93, became the first current or former Democratic president to speak at Liberty University when he delivered a commencement address in May. His remarks came a year after President TrumpDonald TrumpClyburn says he's worried about losing House, 'losing this democracy' Sinema reignites 2024 primary chatter amid filibuster fight Why not a Manchin-DeSantis ticket for 2024?

Jerry Falwell Sr., the founder of Liberty, was a staunch critic of Carter during his administration.
Carter, a prominent advocate for Habitat for Humanity, speaks often about his Christian faith. The 39th president has penned 32 books.
Falwell Jr., 56, is a lawyer and a staunch Trump supporter.
“Donald Trump’s not Republican, he’s not a Democrat, he’s just a real person, a businessman, and somebody who loves America,” Falwell Jr. said on Wednesday.
“That’s the type of candidate – I’m going to support outsiders from here on out,” he added.
Noting Carter’s commencement address, Falwell Jr. said, “He’s another outsider.”
“My whole political philosophy has changed,” Falwell Jr. said.
