I got news this past week that I'd won an award from the Evangelical Publishers' Association. It was 3rd place, but, hey, better than not placing at all-----and I had some heavy competition. The category was "Standing Column," meaning a regular column in a magazine.

Here is the list of winners:

First Place : Advance, “View Point” by Bill Shepson

Second Place : Sojourners, “Hearts & Minds” by Jim Wallis

Third Place : Plain Truth, “Tender Mercies” by Ruth Tucker

Fourth Place : Reformed Worship, “Come and See” by Dean Heetderks

Fifth Place : Ignite Your Faith, “The Wild Ways of Jesus” by Mark Galli

Judge: Thomas W. Schaefer, book author, columnist, and former editor with The Wichita Eagle , Wichita, Kansas
