KJV Study Bible Wins Retailers’ Choice Award

We were pleased to learn that The KJV Study Bible (Barbour) recently won the 2012 Retailer's Choice Award.

We created this Bible for Barbour Publishing and built the study note system from the 12 Volume Quick Notes Commentary series, which we authored for the same publisher over a period of three years. Our role on this project was to write and edit Bible study notes, design the interior, and complete the typesetting.

The homepage for the Retailer's Choice Awards says:

Introduced in 2001, the Retailers Choice Awards have been increasingly acknowledged as an important way of recognizing some of the most significant new life-changing products in the Christian retail industry. Retailers were asked to judge nominations 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.

Zondervan Releases NIV Life Journey Bible

During the last year, we helped Zondervan create the NIV Life Journey Bible. We worked closely with the General Editors (Henry Cloud and John Townsend--authors of Boundaries) to help formulate the concept, outline study notes, and help direct the manuscript into final form. (For more on our work with helping authors create study Bible content, click here)

At the conclusion of the project, Dr. Townsend offered this endorsement: “Chris is an excellent partner in content development, editing, and strategics. He is trustworthy, organized and is a warm person. I recommend his work highly.”
