Isaiah: Surprising Salvation and Bible Bites: 365 Devotions for Aussie Families have been shortlisted for the 2011 Australian Christian Book of the Year.
Isaiah, Surprising Salvation (Kirk Patston with Series Editor, Paul Barnett, published by Aquila Press) highlights the themes of danger, trust, transformation and judgment throughout Isaiah’s pages.
It is the latest addition to the Reading the Bible Today Series, non-technical commentaries presented with careful scholarship in a way that everyone can understand and enjoy.
Bible Bites, 365 Devotions for Aussie Families was published by Growing Faith, an imprint of Youthworks.
It is designed to make family devotions a fun and interactive time learning about God and God’s plan for everyone. Families open God’s word, pray and play together with fast and fun activities to get kids aged 3–12 excited about their growing faith.
Bible Bites and Isaiah were among seven titles short-listed for this year’s award, chosen for their original nature of work, its literary style, competence, design and contribution to meeting a need in Christian writing. The winner and awards will be announced on Thursday, August 18 at St Alfred’s Anglican Church, Blackburn North, Victoria.
