WhenTheMorningGloryBloomsForeword Reviews, the only review magazine solely dedicated to discovering new independently published books, recently announced the finalists for its 16th Annual Book of the Year Awards.

Each year, Foreword highlights a small group of indie authors and publishers whose work stands out from the crowd. The awards are designed to help connect the best indie books to readers eager to discover new stories written by previously unknown authors.

The following are some of the titles named Religious Fiction finalists: A Plain Disappearance by Amanda Flower (B&H Books); Invisible by Ginny Yttrup (B&H Books); The Cat That God Sent by Jim Kraus (Abingdon Press); Visibly Struck by Steve Kubicek (Summit Partners); and When the Morning Glory Blooms by Cynthia Ruchti (Abingdon Press).

Select titles from the Religion Nonfiction finalists are: Boring by Michael Kelley (B&H Books); Consider the Birds by Debbie Blue (Abingdon Press);On God's Side by Jim Wallis (Brazos Press/Baker Publishing Group); Playing God by Andy Crouch (IVP Books); Stop Asking Jesus Into Your Heart by J.D. Greear (B&H Books); and The Good Funeral by Thomas G. Long and Thomas Lynch (Westminster John Knox Press).

A panel of over 100 librarians and booksellers will determine the award winners, with a celebration to take place during the American Library Association Annual Conference in Las Vegas on Friday, June 27. Awards will be presented in more than 60 categories, and there will be cash prizes for the best in fiction and nonfiction.
