Turner Wins CT Book Award
By John Fea
I just found out that our own John Turner's Bill Bright and Campus Crusade for Christ: The Renewal of Evangelicalism in Postwar America was the winner of the 2009 Christianity Today Book Award in History and Biography. According to the CT website, the judges offered the following praise for the book:
Turner's neutrality and great technical chops are exactly what this subject needed. Yet this is no dry account: He possesses both an unerring ear for the apt quote and a keen eye for the revealing scene. With these tools, Turner creates a fascinating window into the vibrant and angular culture of Crusade and the churning activism of (especially) 1960s and '70s American evangelicals.
Congrats, John--an honor that is well-deserved.
