Wednesday July 25th, 2012
Professor John Bowen recently received an Award of Merit at the annual Canadian Christian Writing Awards gala. The award was in the “Culture” category, and was for John’s edition of The Missionary Letters of Vincent Donovan 1957-1973 (Wipf and Stock 2011).
The annual writing awards, sponsored by The Word Guild, celebrate the best in Canadian writing in periodicals, anthologies, and books by authors who write from a Christian worldview.
These awards have been given since 1988, when they were known as The God Uses Ink Awards. This year, 360 entries were received for 35 different categories, from British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia. Submissions from Canadians living in the United States and Uganda were also entered.
