COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (May 18, 2023) – NavPress is pleased to announce that How to Pray: A Guide for Young Explorers by Pete Greig and Gemma Hunt received the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association’s (ECPA) 2023 Christian Book Award® in the Young People’s Literature category.
“How to pray is a universal concern, and we’re delighted that this invaluable resource is getting such recognition,” said David Zimmerman, NavPress publisher.
Based on Greig’s book How to Pray, which was touted by Christianity Today as “an instant spiritual classic,” this book is packed with drawings, exercises, experiments, and engaging stories that relate to eight- to eleven-year-olds. Reviews, however, give praise from a much wider audience, noting that adults are inspired to pray as they read along with their kids.
The parent book, How to Pray, has become a top selling title, with more than 70,000 copies in print since its release in September 2019. Pete Greig is the cofounder of the worldwide 24-7 Prayer Movement. Gemma Hunt is the cohost of the Alpha Course.
