Presented annually to the finest in Christian publishing since 1978, the Christian Book Awards honor titles in six categories: Bibles, Bible Reference, Non-Fiction, Fiction, Children, and Inspiration.

Five finalists are selected in each category following a stringent judging process by judging panels specially selected for each category.

The top scoring book in each category is named the Christian Book Award® winner. The Christian Book of the Year® is chosen among the finalists to represent Christian publishing's highest quality and greatest impact for 2011.

The Christian Book Award winners and Christian Book of the Year® were announced at the Executive Leadership Summit in Colorado Springs, Colorado, on May 2nd.
