FiveTimesIMetMyselfThe 2016 Christy Award winners were announced Monday in a much more understated fashion than at the usual gala during the International Christian Retail Show (ICRS). Instead, the awards honoring and promoting excellence in Christian fiction were announced via video online at christyawards.com.

The winners will be featured on Moody Radio's "Chris Fabry Live!" this Friday, July 1. Hosted by Fabry, a novelist who has won multiple Christy Awards himself, the show is heard on over 225 Moody radio stations and streamed live at moodyradio.org/chrisfabrylive/, 2-4 p.m. CDT.

Book of the Year and Visionary: The Five Times I Met Myself by James L. Rubart (Thomas Nelson, a division of HarperCollins Christian Publishing)
