I just got the e-mail with the 2016 CT Book Awards.
John Walton’s The Lost World of Adam and Eve: Genesis 2-3 and the Human Origins Dabate won an award of merit in the biblical studies category. (And there is never any shame in “losing” to Craig Keener.)

John H. Walton (IVP Academic)
“Questions of human origins and the historical Adam are of intense interest to the church and the academy, especially in light of the Human Genome Project. Here, Walton follows up on his previous work (which reads the Genesis Creation account through the lens of Ancient Near Eastern cosmology) with a focus on Adam and Eve. Reading the Creation account through ancient Israelite eyes, he provides an intriguing alternative for those who see contemporary science as moving in a direction antithetical to traditional understandings of Genesis.” —Mark Strauss, professor of New Testament at Bethel Seminary [/quote]
