LAKEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Colorado baker whose refusal to design a cake for a gay wedding led to a landmark Supreme Court ruling has a book deal.

Jack Phillips' memoir, currently untitled, will be released this summer by Salem Books Publishing.

Salem Books is a Christian evangelical imprint of Regnery Publishing. It is calling the memoir “a firsthand account of his experience on the front lines" of a cultural battle between religious and secular forces.

Phillips was initially reprimanded by the Colorado Civil Rights Commission, but the Supreme Court ruled in 2018 that the commission violated his First Amendment rights.
