2016 Christian Retailings Best Awards Finalists & Winners

Article Date: October 1, 2016

Winners have been announced in the 2016 Christian Retailing's Best awards sponsored by Christian Retailing magazine. In each category, three finalists were named. One category—Christian Living: Spiritual Growth—had two winners because the category was so large. Christian retailers, publishers, church store managers and volunteers—in short, anyone actively engaged in the Christian products industry—were eligible to vote. Voters were asked to judge the nominations on their impact, including their ability to speak to people's hearts and evoke emotion; open people's minds to new ways of thinking; and encourage and affirm Christ-like living. Winners are marked with an asterisk (*).
