We're excited to announce that two books from Anglican Aid's publishing arm, Grace Abounding Books, have been shortlisted for the 2019 Australian Christian Book of the Year Award!
For the Joy, edited by Miriam Chan & Sophia Russell, and tea & thread by Sally Bathgate and Katrina Flett Guldbrandsen, are both in the running to take out this year's award. The winner will be announced by Sparklit Australia on 15 August 2019.
For the Joy recounts the experiences of 21 'missionary mums' dealing with the ups and downs of parenting and life in another culture and far from home. tea & thread: portraits of middle eastern women far from home introduces 17 diverse women from the Middle East, and contains a collection of stories, recipes, and traditional handicraft projects. The stories and photographs included offer glimpses into these women's memories of life before war, war-time difficulties, and the uncertainties of being a refugee. The portraits that appear in tea & thread grew out of mutual hospitality among humanitarian workers and women affected by conflicts in the Middle East.
We extend our hearty congratulations to the authors, editors and contributors to these two beautiful books!
