Marc Brettler's "Three Testaments" wins IPPY book award
Marc Brettler, the Dora Golding Professor of Biblical Studies, has been awarded an Independent Publisher Book Award for his contributions to "Three Testaments: Torah, Gospel, and Quran," a work that explores the connections between Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Brettler shares the award with editor Brian Arthur Brown and co-authors Amir Hussain, Laleh Bakhtiar, David Bruce, Henry Carrigan, Ellen Frankel and Nevin Reda. "Three Testaments" tied for the gold medal in its category, Religion, with "The Messianic Feast: Moving Beyond the Ritual," by T. Alex Tennent.
The awards, known as the IPPYs, launched in 1996 and are designed to bring increased recognition to titles published by independent authors and publishers. This year, 275 medalists were chosen from 4,000 submissions in 78 categories.
