We just learned that my first book, A Bead and a Prayer: A Beginner’s Guide to Protestant Prayer Beads, has won a 2014 Best Book Award. It was named a finalist in the Religion: Christianity category. What’s really fun is that 3 of the 6 finalists for this category were published by Upper Room Books. This is includes Saffron Cross: The Unlikely Story of How a Christian Minister Married a Hindu Monk, written by my good friend, J. Dana Trent. Congrats to Dana, and go Upper Room Books!
As many of you know, this is the second honor for A Bead and a Prayer: in April it was named Book of the Year in the Christian Living category by the Christian Small Publisher Association. I continue to be amazed and humbled by the reception for this little book! Thanks for your support!
