I am humbled. And consequently, I’m going to brag a wee bit.

It appears my book The Beatitudes for Progressive Christians is the gold medal winner in the Bible Study category of the 2021 Illumination Awards! This is the second time I’ve won (last year it was for Birth of Jesus for Progressive Christians).

What excited me about these awards is simply that they acknowledge that progressive Christians have a hunger to study the Bible in ways that allow them to think about it, rather than just be told “this is what it means – take it or leave it.”

I’ll take a bow – and then it’s back to work.
