Three Eerdmans titles have won 2013 Book Awards from Christianity Today. Lamin Sanneh took top honors in the History/Biography category for his memoir Summoned from the Margin: Homecoming of an African. F. Dale Bruner was honored with an Award of Merit in the Biblical Studies category for his commentary on The Gospel of John, and Thomas E. Bergler’s book The Juvenilization of American Christianity earned him an Award of Merit in the category of The Church/Pastoral Leadership.
- Paul Marshall examined Lamin Sanneh’s Summoned from the Margin for Christianity Today in his review “Home Away from Home: Lamin Sanneh has journeyed from Africa to the West, and from Islam to Christianity.”
- Robert Cornwall also reviewed Sanneh’s book on Ponderings on a Faith Journey, saying that it “serves as an important challenge to the way in which we envision religion present in our society.” One day later, Cornwall featured the book (along with Amos Yong’s The Bible, Disability, and the Church) in his Best Books of 2012 post.
