Got some good news to post on the Edge today. And even though it is a cause for celebration, I have to say it’s a little awkward for me to use this space for horn-tooting. I prefer the piano in a quiet room. But you might want know that The Shape of Mercy has been named a finalist in the Evangelical Christian Publishers Assn’s Book of the Year contest. I have been named in the fine company of Jerry B. Jenkins, Tim Downs, Ann H. Gabhart and Christa Barritt. As the Sprint guy would say, “Pretty cool, huh?”
The other categories are Bibles, Children & Youth, Inspiration & Gift, Bible Reference & Study, and Christian Life. You can read more about it here.
The winner will be named on March 19 – the day before the Christian Book Expo begins – in Dallas. (If you live in the DFW area, you should go to the Expo. More than 200 authors will be there. Me, included). So without further ado and adon’t, here are the nominees. Celebrate with me. . .
