Christianity Today Announces Book Awards

For two decades, the annual Christianity Today Book Awards have recognized outstanding volumes that shed light on people, events, and ideas that shape evangelical life, thought, and mission. This year, our judging process began with 472 titles submitted by 72 publishers. CT editors selected finalists in each category, and then our expert judges sorted out the best of the bunch from 2009. Here are the 12 winners (including two ties) that best shed light on the people, events, and ideas that shape evangelical life, thought, and mission.
