Book Prize for Being Good

Austin and Geivett.Being Good.Book CoverIn June 2013, our book Being Good: Christian Virtues for Everyday Life (Eerdmans, 2012) received the “Character Essay and Book Prize,” awarded by the Character Project at Wake Forest University. Here’s the Character Project’s description of criteria for awarding prizes:

Several Character Essay and Book Prizes were awarded to essays or books on character which are accessible to non-academic audiences in venues with a wide readership. We received many outstanding entries, and awards were made in three areas: the psychology of character, the philosophy of character, and the theology of character.

We wish to thank Christian Miller, Director of the Character Project, for his generosity and warm hospitality. Rebecca Konyndyk-DeYoung’s chapter on “Courage” received an independent award in the essay category. Congratulations, Rebecca!

Mike Austin and I continue to be grateful to Eerdmans for their enthusiastic support in publishing this book.
