2007 Catholic Press Association Awards 
First Prize
Category: Social Concerns

"We found The Convict Christ very compelling and well-written. The topic is timely, and the author’s perspective is challenging and well-researched. It is a wonderful book for Christians who are ready to confront our society’s “lepers” -- prison inmates. The volume is easy to read and well-organized, and we especially appreciated the integration of Scripture, personal stories and broader reflections."
