Last night I attended the 2009 Christian Book Awards in Dallas, Texas. The awards are given by the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association in several categories: Bibles, Children & Youth, Christian Life, Bible Reference & Study, Inspiration & Gift, Fiction, and Book of the Year. The awards ceremony is not unlike others of its genre, but without as much glitch or attention. You can learn more about the award winners here.
Book of the Year honors went to the ESV Study Bible, published by Crossway (my publisher for Can You Trust the Gospels?). It may seem odd for a study Bible to take this award. But the ESV Study Bible has already made a huge mark among Bible readers. I want to congratulate my friends who worked tirelessely on this Bible project, especially Justin Taylor and J.I. Packer who were editors of the Bible.
