2016 ECPA Christian Book Awards
The 2016 ECPA Christian Book Award winners were announced last night. Bible Buying Guide was of course most interested in the winner of the Bibles category.
The finalists were:
- ESV Action Bible Study Bible
- NLT Dancing in the Desert Devotional Bible from Tyndale
- NLT Illustrated Study Bible from Tyndale
- NIV Zondervan Study Bible
- ESV Reformation Study Bible
And the Winner is … the NLT Illustrated Study Bible from Tyndale. (You guessed that already from the picture, didn’t you?) We have a copy of this Bible in house for an upcoming review and it a very nice (and rather large) study Bible with lots of study helps including pictures, timelines, character profiles, maps, word studies and more.
Last nights other winners were:
- 2016 Book of the Year – Fervent by Priscilla Shirer
- Non-Fiction – The Case for Grace by Lee Strobel
- New Author – Behold the King of Glory by Russ Ramsey
- Inspiration – Unwrapping the Greatest Gift by Ann Voskamp
- Fiction – Luther and Katharina by Jody Hedlund
- Children – The Bible is My Best Friend-Family Devotional written by Sheila Walsh & illustrated by Sarah Horne
- Bible Reference – How we Got the Bible by Timothy Paul Jones (a review coming for this one also)
I will be adding a few of the finalists and winners to my ever growing TBR (to be read) pile. If my children weren’t already grown The Bible is My Best Friend Devotional would be top of the list.
