Ada, Mich. (December 7, 2021)—Baker Academic and Brazos Press are pleased to announce that three titles were honored by The Gospel Coalition in the 2021 TGC Book Awards.

Evangelism and Apologetics Winner

Gavin Ortlund, Why God Makes Sense in a World that Doesn’t
This winsome apologetics book for a new generation makes the case that Christianity offers a compelling explanatory framework for making sense of our world. Pastor and writer Gavin Ortlund believes it is essential to appeal not only to the mind but also to the heart and the imagination as we articulate the beauty of the gospel.

Public Theology & Current Events Winner

Andrew T. Walker, Liberty for All
Christians are often thought of as defending only their own religious interests in the public square, but they can become the strongest defenders of religious liberty for all.

Academic Theology Honorable Mention

Craig Carter, Contemplating God with the Great Tradition


The Gospel Coalition supports the church by providing resources that are trusted and timely, winsome and wise, and centered on the gospel of Jesus Christ.
