B&H Publishing Group Wins Four Retailers Choice Awards
NASHVILLE, Tenn., 7/18/2012 – B&H Publishing Group received four honors at the 12th annual Retailers Choice Awards, sponsored by Christian Retailing magazine and held during the 2012 International Christian Retail Show in Orlando, Florida.
Winners were selected from among more than 300 products nominated in 41 categories. Retailers were asked to judge nominations based on the impact they have had on staff and customers, including their ability to: speak to people’s hearts and evoke emotion; open people’s minds to new ways of thinking; encourage and affirm Christ-like living.
The Resolution for Men by Stephen Kendrick, Alex Kendrick, and Randy Alcorn won the Retailers Choice Award in the Nonfiction Men category. The Resolution for Women by Priscilla Shirer won in the Nonfiction Women category. Both books were released in association with the hit film Courageous and have become New York Times and CBA best sellers.
In relation, B&H’s Courageous Living Bible Study Leader Kit took home the DVD/Video honor.
The publisher’s fourth win was in the Health and Fitness category for Reshaping It All: Motivation for Physical and Spiritual Fitness, a New York Times best seller by Candace Cameron Bure and Darlene Schacht.
