Winner of Choice Outstanding Academic Title, 2006 award.

MINNEAPOLIS (January 2, 2007) – CHOICE: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries, a publication of the Association of College and Research Libraries, a division of the American Library Association, has chosen two titles from Fortress Press, Christian Origins and Late Ancient Christianity, for inclusion in their Outstanding Academic Titles list for 2006.

This prestigious list reflects the best in scholarly titles reviewed by Choice and brings with it the extraordinary recognition of the academic library community. Books are chosen for overall excellence in presentation and scholarship, importance relative to other literature in the field, distinction as a first treatment of a given subject in book or electronic form, originality or uniqueness of treatment, value to undergraduate students, and importance in building undergraduate library collections.

Irving E. Rockwood, editor & publisher of Choice, states, "These outstanding works were selected for their excellence in scholarship and presentation, the significance of their contribution to the field, and their value as important – often the first – treatment of their subject. Comprising just over 9 percent of the titles reviewed by Choice during the past year, and less than 3 percent of the more than 25,000 titles submitted to Choice during this same period, Outstanding Academic Titles are truly the 'best of the best.'"
