Woman priest enlisted to find best book

Didn't know about the Ramsey Prize. Look forward to hearing the results later this year. Oh, and I think someone needs to buy some vowels.

Nominations are currently being processed and a shortlist of titles contending for the Prize will be announced in December 2008. The winner of the 2009 Michael Ramsey Prize will be announced at the Hay-on-Wye Literary Festival, in May 2009.

The Michael Ramsey Prize, awarded every two years, and worth £15,000, aims to encourage the most promising contemporary theological writing and to identify it for a wider Christian readership. The biennial prize was inaugurated by Archbishop of Canterbury in 2005 to commemorate Dr Ramsey, who was Archbishop of Canterbury from 1961-1974, and his commitment to increasing the breadth of theological understanding of people in general.
