Winners of the 2014 Christian Retailing’s Best awards will be announced Tuesday, June 24, at the International Christian Retail Show (ICRS) in Atlanta. Todd Starnes, author of God Less America (Charisma House, May) and host of the “FOX News & Commentary” daily radio show, will present the awards, Tuesday, 9-10 a.m., at the show floor’s Creative Pavilion stage at the Georgia World Congress Center.
Christian Retailing magazine, sponsor of the awards, invites all ICRS attendees to attend the free presentation.
Nominating companies submitted books, Bibles, gifts, DVDs and more in this year’s competition. In each category, three finalists are named, although some categories have more than three due to ties in the voting.
Among the finalists are top products such as Outlaw by Ted Dekker (Hachette Book Group) in the Fiction: General category; In Capable Arms by Sarah Kovac (Abingdon Press) in First-Time Authors; and All In by Mark Batterson (Zondervan) in Christian Living: Spiritual Growth.
Voters were asked to judge the nominations on their impact, including their ability to speak to people’s hearts and evoke emotion; open people’s minds to new ways of thinking; and encourage and affirm Christ-like living.
