ECPA-40-webThe Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA) will present Jordon Lifetime Achievement Awards to Jack Countryman, founder of JCountryman Gift Books, and posthumously to best-selling author Brennan Manning. The awards will be conferred April 28 in Colorado Springs, Colo., opening night of the ECPA Leadership Summit.

Countryman’s 30-plus years in Christian publishing have allowed him the opportunity to help create and develop bestselling gift books such as God's Promises for Your Every Need, God's Promises for Men and God Listens. This year not only marks 20 million JCountryman books sold, but also the 30th anniversary of the God’s Promises brand.

Manning (1934-2013) is best known as the author of the contemporary classics The Ragamuffin Gospel, All Is Grace, Abba's Child, Ruthless Trust, The Furious Longing of God, The Importance of Being Foolish and Patched Together. His unflinching honesty about himself as a “ragamuffin,” an imposter and a man in search of the undeserved love of Jesus has encouraged millions of Christians.
