NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (March 9, 2015) B&H Publishing Group is proud to announce multiple winners from the 2014 Outreach Resource Awards.

In the Counseling category, Recovering Redemption by Matt Chandler and Michael Snetzer was a finalist.
AutopsyOfADeceasedChurch_lowresFor the 12th consecutive year, Outreach magazine is celebrating some of the best outreach-oriented books and curricula by honoring them as Outreach Resources of the Year. These will be highlighted in their upcoming March/April issue. More than 170 resources were submitted for consideration.
The Outreach Resources of the Year aim to highlight valuable resources for church leaders and bring deserved attention to resources that can help churches better engage in effective outreach to share the gospel and reach our communities for Christ.
Published in May 2014, Thom Rainer’s Autopsy of a Deceased Church has started a conversation about the reasons churches die and how to prevent it from happening to yours. It has been a best-selling title for B&H reaching as high as #2 on the CBA Best-sellers list, behind Rainer’s #1 book, I Am a Church Member.
Published in May 2014, Matt Chandler and Michael Snetzer’s Recovering Redemption was written with a pastor’s bold intensity and a counselor’s discerning insight. The book moves readers deeply into Scripture to take them deeply inside themselves, discovering that the heart of all our problems is truly the problem of our hearts.
Published in February 2014, Ed Stetzer and Eric Geiger’s Transformational Groups was written to help small group leaders create a new scorecard for how groups can transform their church. Using data from the largest survey of pastors and laypersons ever done in North America on the condition of groups in the church, they define a simple process to lead groups from where they are to where God wants them to be.
