Triple CRT awards victory for Lion Hudson authors!
Staff at Lion Hudson are celebrating after The Unofficial Bible for Minecrafters (Lion Children’s Books) by Garrett Romines and Christopher Miko was named Children's and Youth Book of the Year and My Journey So Far (Lion Books) by Canon Andrew White – ‘The Vicar of Baghdad’ - won Christian Book of the Year at the annual Christian Resources Together awards in Swanwick on 15 September 2016.
We were also delighted to see much-loved author Jennifer Rees Larcombe - whose books include God Moments and God Moments for Dark Days (Monarch Books) - receive the award for Outstanding Contribution to Christian Publishing.
Suzanne Wilson-Higgins, Managing Director of Lion Hudson, commented:‘We are so pleased to see the CRT awards picking up on some of our publishing highlights from the last year. The visual style of The Unofficial Bible for Minecrafters has been a hit with Minecrafter fans of all ages, particularly in encouraging younger readers to engage with Bible stories. Celebrating Canon Andrew White’s ministry in Iraq and publishing his biography last autumn was a privilege. And it was a delight to work with Jennifer Rees Larcombe on God Moments and God Moments for Dark Days, which published earlier this year - we wish her many successful years in publishing still to come!’
