Apologetics / Evangelism
"McGrath illustrates how theology transforms our thinking and behavior, and how true apologetics engages not only the mind but also the heart and imagination. His critique of the New Atheism is brilliant."

Award of Merit
Readings on the Reason for Faith
Francis S. Collins (Harperone)
A Conversation on Growing Up in Christ
"This capstone to the five-volume spiritual theology 'conversations' series is, fittingly, Eugene Peterson at his best. He reflects on pastoring, family life, theology, and daily church realities; critiques both churchiness gone awry and individualism that leads to a rejection of the church; and cautions about where North American Christianity misses the mark. All this is woven together with warm eloquence."
