Grand Rapids, Mich. (December 13, 2013)—Four Revell titles were selected by The Christian Manifesto as 2013 Lime Award Winners for Excellence in both the fiction and nonfiction categories. The nominations take place throughout the year and any book that receives a five-star excellent rating is automatically nominated for the award.

For the fiction category, reviewers had to select eleven winners from among forty-seven nominated titles. Revell won three of the eleven categories. Rachel Brand, fiction and nonfiction editor for The Christian Manifesto, said, “We’ve read a great collection of challenging, heart-pounding, touching, and mind-blowing novels this year, and we hope there’s something here to catch your interest. Whether you’re looking for a sweet romance, a suspenseful adventure, or a bedtime story for your children, I’m sure at least one of these titles will make its way onto your Christmas wishlist.”
