"I'd Like to Thank . . ."
As the new year begins, it’s awards season—and while we don’t want to blow our own horn, get ready for a trumpet solo.
First, Christianity Today has just announced the 2010 Christianity Today Book Awards. Their judges reviewed 472 books from seventy-two publishers and came up with twelve winners—four from IVP, more than any other publisher!
Following close behind are the honors coming from Leadership Journal—The Golden Canon Leadership Book Awards. Four IVP books made their list of the ten most valuable books for church leaders from 2009, again outdistancing any other single publisher.
Finally, Byron Borger of Hearts & Minds gave his award for Book of the Decade. The Fabric of Faithfulness by Steven Garber took home the bacon. Read Byron’s heartfelt and thoughtful comment on this very influential book.
(Boy, my lips are sore.)
