Outreach magazine has announced their annual Resources of the Year winners! A huge congratulations is due to a handful of Zondervan authors for the honor. Here they are in no particular order:
The King Jesus Gospel: The Original Good News Revisited
By Scot McKnight (Zondervan); Scot’s blog, Jesus Creed
Half the Church: Recapturing God’s Global Vision for Women
By Carolyn Custis James (Zondervan); Carolyn’s blog, The Whitby Forum
Sticky Faith: Everyday Ideas to Build Lasting Faith in Your Kids
By Kara E. Powell and Chap Clark; Sticky Faith.org
This really is an honor for an author. Ask any writer you know and they’ll tell you that when their work is read, awarded, or otherwise noticed it means something really special to them. Books are like children to most writers: they require a lot of work, sacrifice, blood, sweat, and tears to “raise,” but in the end they are a source of great pride and joy. I encourage you to stop by these authors’ sites and congratulate them, or leave a comment of congratulations below and I’ll be sure to email them the link.
Busting with pride,
Carolyn Custis James has a new book, Half the Church: Recapturing God’s Global Vision for Women, coming out this March. In this book she presents a vision of God’s plan for women that avoids assuming they are part of a particular social location or family situation. She discusses how God crafts a new identity for women who respond to the call —regardless of age, life stage, social location, and point on the globe. It’s really intriguing book that I think social-justice minded readers, missions readers, women’s issue readers, and global thinkers will find inspiring. This video will explain more.
