CRBest-BHWinnersB&H Publishing Group was the runaway winner with 13 awards at the 2016 Christian Retailing’s Best awards. Christian Retailing announced the awards celebrating the best products of the year Monday morning during Unite 2016 (International Christian Retail Show) in Cincinnati. Abingdon Press also had a good showing, winning five awards, while both Lighthouse Christian Products and Baker Publishing Group won four.

Senior Pastor and Charisma House author David Ireland presented the awards in the press conference room at the Duke Energy Convention Center. Christine D. Johnson, editor of Christian Retailing magazine, welcomed the guests.

Nominating companies submitted books, Bibles, gifts, DVDs and more in this year’s competition, and finalists were named in each of 36 categories. One category—Christian Living: Spiritual Growth—had two winners because the category was so large.

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 Christlike living.
