Award description

"We desire that youth will become aware of the religious, social, and cultural issues that people face in our age that are, in fact, ageless. By reading these books, questions will be raised about international events, world history, and God’s vision that will promote a discussion about faith in Jesus and what it means to be a disciple of the risen Christ in today’s world. . . [R]eaders are presented with opportunities for discussion about issues of race, poverty, class distinctions, conflict, and cultural differences that divide us. We believe that Jesus Christ calls us to a new way of relating to each other--the way of Shalom."
