Lilly Fellows Book Award: Call for Entries

I want to call your attention to this book prize for works that reflect on the intersection of academic life and Christian faith. Our book Confessing History: Explorations on the Historian's Vocation (co-edited with Jay Green and Eric Miller) was a finalist in 2011.
The biennial Lilly Fellows Program Book Award honors an original and imaginative work from any academic discipline that best exemplifies the central ideas and principles animating the Lilly Fellows Program.  These include faith and learning in the Christian intellectual tradition, the vocation of teaching and scholarship, and the history, theory or practice of the university as the site of religious inquiry and culture.
Works considered for this year’s award address the historical or contemporary relation of Christian intellectual life and scholarship to the practice of teaching as a Christian vocation or to the past, present, and future of higher education.  Authors and editors cannot nominate their own works.  Single authored books or edited collections in any discipline published in 2011 to 2014 are eligible.
A Prize of $3000 will be awarded at the Lilly Fellows Program National Conference at Belmont University, October 9-11, 2015.
For more information about the LFP Book Award, including past winners, see our website (http://lillyfellows.org/GrantsPrizes/LFPBookAward.aspx).
 
The deadline for nominations is March 1, 2015.
