Penguin Random House: WaterBrook Authors Win 3 2021 Christian Book Awards, Including Book of the Year for BE THE BRIDGE

The Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA) announced the winners of the 2021 Christian Book Awards via live webcast on Thursday, May 6, with the ECPA honoring 14 winners in 12 categories. Random House imprint WaterBrook won three awards, including Christian Book of the Year for BE THE BRIDGE: Pursuing God’s Heart for Racial Reconciliation by Latasha Morrison. BE THE BRIDGE also won in the Faith & Culture category.

The Christian Book Award program has recognized the highest quality in Christian books since 1978. Based on excellence in content, literary quality, design, and impact, the Christian Book Award is the oldest and among the most prestigious awards in the religious publishing industry.

Tina Constable, EVP & Publisher, WaterBrook & Multnomah, Convergent, Image, and Forum, said, “This book [BE THE BRIDGE] was so needed when it was first published but in today’s polarized cultural moment it has become a more urgent resource for racial reconciliation. This [Christian Book of the Year] award could not have gone to a more deserving author or book. May we all be the bridge to change.”

Ms. Morrison started the Be the Bridge organization in 2016 to encourage racial reconciliation among all ethnicities, to promote racial unity in America, and to equip others to do the same. Her book was published in October of 2019, and became a New York Times bestseller, an ECPA Bestseller, and winner of Christianity Today’s Book Award.

WaterBrook also received the Christian Book Award for Best Biography & Memoir with I’VE SEEN THE END OF YOU: A Neurosurgeon’s Look at Faith, Doubt, and the Things We Think We Know by W. Lee Warren, M.D.
