Book Awards

Moody Publishers Title Wins Place in both 2010 Christianity Today Book Awards and Leadership Journal Golden Canon Book Awards

AwardBannerMoody Publishers is pleased to announce Why We Love the Church: In Praise of Institutions and Organized Religion by Kevin DeYoung & Ted Kluck as a winner in the 2010 C hristianity Today Book Awards in The Church/Pastoral Leadership category in a tie with Deep Church: A Third Way Beyond Emerging and Traditional by Jim Belcher (Intervarsity).  The book also made it into the Leadership Journal Golden Canon Leadership Book Awards in the Leader’s Inner Life category. In Why We Love the Church DeYoung & Kluck unapologetically—and often humorously—endorse “organized religion” and take on contemporary ideas about church-at-Starbucks or church-on-the-golf course.  And they remind us that “being part of a church—and learning to love it—is good for your soul, biblically responsible, and pleasing to God.”  DeYoung and Kluck were also winners in the 2009 Christianity Today Book Award in the same category for Why We’re Not Emergent (By Two Guys Who Should Be).  For more, check out: and
