CRBest14-winnersWinners of the 2014 Christian Retailing’s Best awards were announced Tuesday morning, June 24, at the International Christian Retail Show (ICRS) in Atlanta. Abingdon Press was the runaway winner with 12 awards this year, while Tyndale House Publishers and Baker Publishing Group each took four awards.

Todd Starnes, author of God Less America (FrontLine/Charisma House) and host of the “FOX News & Commentary” daily radio show, presented the 2014 awards, at the Creative Pavilion stage at the Georgia World Congress Center. Steve Strang, founder and CEO of Charisma Media, welcomed the guests, and Christine D. Johnson, editor of Christian Retailing magazine, the sponsor of Christian Retailing’s Best, emceed the awards.

Nominating companies submitted books, Bibles, gifts, DVDs and more in this year’s competition. In each category, three finalists were named, although some categories had more than three because of ties. One category—Fiction: Mystery and Suspense—had two winners because of a tie.

Christian retailers, publishers, church store managers and volunteers—in short, anyone actively engaged in the Christian products industry—were eligible to vote. 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.

Introduced in 2001, the awards—formerly known as the Retailers Choice Awards—have been increasingly acknowledged as an important way of recognizing some of the most significant new life-changing products in the Christian retail industry.
