Two inspirational titles were among the winners of the 17th annual Audie Awards, announced this week by the Audio Publishers Association (APA).

Courageous by Randy Alcorn, Alex Kendrick and Stephen Kendrick (Tyndale House Publishers) and narrated by Roger Mueller (Oasis Audio) won the Inspirational/Faith-Based Fiction category, while the Inspirational/Faith-Based Non-Fiction prize went to The Story, New International Version, narrated by Michael Blain-Rozgay, Allison Moffett and a full cast (print and audio from Zondervan).

The two titles were among those honored during The Audies, held June 5 at the New-York Historical Society in New York City. Marking excellence in 30 categories of audio presentation publishing, The Audies attracted more than 1,250 entries, breaking last year's record, APA said.
