InterVarsity Press Takes Top Book Award

The quality of books published by InterVarsity Press has been consistently recognized by Christianity Today magazine and other award programs. This year Christianity Today has recognized four IVP books for their outstanding quality, and chosen Jen Pollock Michel’s book Teach Us to Want as its 2015 Book of the Year.

The other three books receiving Awards of Merit were: Visions of Vocation by Steven Garber in the Christian Living category, The New Parish by Paul Sparks, Tim Soerens and Dwight Friesen in the Church/Pastoral Leadership category, and Called to Be Saints by Gordon Smith in the Spirituality category. A news release from IVP describes the unique qualities that were recognized by the judges for each book.
