Schaap book nominated for award

James Calvin Schaap's book, Touches the Sky has been nominated by Christianity Today editors for an award in its annual recognition program. Schaap, who teaches English at Dordt College, recently released the book that is one of only five under consideration in the fiction category. The recipients' names will be published in Christianity Today's June issue.

A panel of judges will rank all entries in ten categories over the next few months, selecting first place and possibly honorable mention in categories including apologetics/evangelism, biblical studies, Christianity and culture, Christian living, the church/pastoral leadership, fiction, history/biography, missions/global affairs, spirituality, and theology/ethics.

Last year Christianity Today received 300 nominated titles from forty-six well-known evangelical publishers, academic presses, and mainstream houses. The award criteria include helping readers understand the people, events, and ideas that shape evangelical life, thought, and mission.
