The Good Book Company celebrates book awards from Christianity Today and The Gospel Coalition
CHARLOTTE, NC– The Good Book Company is pleased to announce that three books have been named winners in end-of-year book awards by Christianity Today and The Gospel Coalition. Any Time, Any Place, Any Prayer was chosen as CT’s Children and Youth Book of the Year, and The God Contest and Finding My Father were named winners in their respective categories in TGC’s 2021 Book Awards.
Any Time, Any Place, Any Prayer (The Good Book Company, September 2021), written by Laura Wifler and illustrated by Catalina Echeverri, is a beautifully illustrated Bible storybook that teaches kids how to pray and excites them to want to pray. Award panelist Amy Gannett, writer, Bible teacher, and founder of Tiny Theologians, said, “This book is theologically sound and beautifully illustrated, and it will encourage children and adults alike to grow in a prayerful life.”
Finding My Father (The Good Book Company, October 2021) by Blair Linne won in the First-Time Author category of TGC’s Book Awards. The book is Blair’s personal and moving story, that reveals how we can learn to trust our heavenly Father, especially for those who feel their earthly father has let them down. The TGC judges commented that “this book speaks to the brokenness in all of our lives, encouraging us to trust in the healing and hope that only the gospel can secure.”
The God Contest (The Good Book Company, January 2021), written by Carl Laferton and illustrated by Catalina Echeverri, was named winner in the Children’s category. This book takes kids back to the story of Elijah on Mount Carmel, and then on to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, to give them confidence that the God of the Bible has proved himself to be the one true God. The judges called it “a refreshing reminder that if we serve the One True God, we are not alone!”
