Congratulations to the Excellence in Publishing Winners, Including Patheos’ @TheAnchoress

I smiled from ear to ear when I read the following press release (reprinted from the ACP Website) which contains recently announced winners of this years “Excellence in Publishing Awards” from the Association of Catholic Publishers. The list contains so many writers that I would consider “friends” that I found myself cheering multiple times as if I were at the actual ceremony.

If you’re looking for a great read this summer, I’d recommend several of these but especially Strange Gods by Elizabeth Scalia, Rebuilt by Rev. Michael White and Tom Corcoran, Meditations on Vatican Art by Mark Haydu, LC, STL, and of course The Social Media Gospel by Meredith Gould. Congratulations friends!

    Wow,…what a collection of books no one has ever heard of. Not an Ignatius book in the lot, eh….probably the most successful Catholic publisher out there.
