I have to ask you. Is this not the most gorgeous set of books?
If you’re not familiar with The Christy Award, here is what Wikipedia says: “The Christy Awards, established in 1999, are awarded each year to recognize fiction of excellence written from a Christian perspective with matters of faith at its core. Awards are given in several genres, including contemporary, historical, romance, suspense, and visionary.” The Christy Award website takes those ideas a bit further and says that the award “is designed to nurture and encourage creativity and quality in the writing and publishing of fiction written from a Christian worldview.”
Isn’t that wonderful? In a world which can often recognize the opposite, this award recognizes beauty, creativity, and quality. I have read several of these books and can speak to their beauty and wonder. Others, I haven’t read yet; but they are definitely on my “to be read,” or TBR list!
And one entrant is going to win a fabulous prize of books from this list…so keep reading and be sure to enter the giveaway!
