Walker (BSJ '73) wins religion writing award
Ken Walker (BSJ ’73) is a longtime freelance writer and regular contributor to Christianity Today, which in September won the 2011 “Magazine News Reporting of the Year” award from the Religion Newswriters Association. This was the first year that CT has been able to participate in the RNA awards contest, which in the past had limited membership to reporters who work for secular news outlets. Walker wrote a story on author Philip Yancey that was featured in the contest entry issue of October 2010.
Walker is also the co-author of Winning the Food Fight by Steve Willis, which will be released January 2, 2012, by Regal Books, a major publisher based in Ventura, California. British chef Jamie Oliver wrote the foreword and his name will be featured on the cover. Willis is the pastor of First Baptist Church of Kenova (West Virginia) and was featured in the spring of 2010 on Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution on ABC Television. The series won a 2010 Emmy Award for "Best Reality Series."
