ChristianBookAward14-winners-webThe Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA) announced eight winners for the 2014 Christian Book Award program, honoring Christian publishing’s best book and Bible releases of the year—and one top book winner. The awards were presented at the ECPA Awards & Anniversary banquet April 28, held the opening night of the ECPA Leadership Summit at Focus on the Family in Colorado Springs, Colo.

Crossway’s Crazy Busy: A (Mercifully) Short Book About a (Really) Big Problem by Kevin DeYoung received the 2014 Christian Book of the Year, the industry’s highest book honor bestowed upon one title from all the finalists considering its overall impact in the marketplace.

Category winners were Bibles: The MacArthur Study Bible NIV (Thomas Nelson); Bible Reference: Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels, Second Edition (InterVarsity Press); Children: The Sparkle Box, Jill Hardie, Christine Kornacki (Ideals Publications); Fiction: Iscariot: A Novel of Judas, Tosca Lee (Howard Books); Inspiration: He Walks Among Us: Encounters With Christ in a Broken World, Richard and Renee Stearns (Thomas Nelson); New Author: Falling Into Place, Hattie Kauffman (Baker Books/Baker Publishing Group); and Nonfiction: C.S. Lewis–A Life, Alister McGrath (Tyndale House Publishers).

The Christian Book Award program, established in 1978 as the Gold Medallion Book Awards, recognizes the absolute highest quality in Christian books. Based on excellence in content, literary quality, design, and impact, the Christian Book Award program is the oldest and among the most prestigious awards in the religious publishing industry.

Christian Book Award program finalists and winners receive recognition and support throughout multiple retail and media outlets, including Christianity Today, BookShout, ChristianBook.com, Cokesbury, Family Christian, Lifeway Christian Stores, Mardel Christian Stores, Munce Group, Parable Christian Stores, Crossings, NetGalley, Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Christian Book Award media partner Christianity Today will feature the winning titles in online and print ads starting May 2 and scheduled throughout the year.
