CAROL STREAM, Ill.—May 6, 2022—Tyndale House Publishers is pleased to announce that Immerse: The Reading Bible has been named the Christian Book Award winner in the Bibles category. The Christian Book Award honors excellence in Bibles and Christian books.

Immerse: The Reading Bible delivers Scripture to the reader as it was originally written—without chapter or verse numbers, subheadings, or textual notes that can distract readers from the text. Created with the look and feel of a paperback book and using the Holy Bible, New Living Translation, the most readable translation available, Immerse offers uninterrupted reading of God’s Word.

According to their website, “The Christian Book Award® program recognizes the highest quality in Christian books and Bibles and is among the oldest and most prestigious awards program in the religious publishing industry. Presented annually to the finest in Christian publishing since 1978, the Christian Book Award® program honors the ‘best of the year’ in 12 categories.” On May 4, 2022, the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA) announced the winners of the 2022 Christian Book Awards.

In response, Amy Simpson, Bible Publisher at Tyndale House Publishers, shared, “This honor for Immerse is so exciting. Understanding the Bible changes everything, and as a Bible built for reading, Immerse has been providing new access and understanding of the Bible for individuals and groups, encouraging more reading of God’s Word by including fewer interruptions. We’re so grateful for this professional recognition.”
