^Eyrie Books, a division of Redeemer Baptist Press, was awarded Third Prize for its publication of Geoffrey Bingham's book Love Is the Spur, an intimate and stirring account of what happened during his time as a prisoner of war in the Changi and Kranji prison camps.
Entries in this year's competition were judged with an eye to: the original nature of the work; the literary style, including suitability to the target audience; the overall design, layout, cover, text and illustrations; and the contribution that the book makes in meeting a need in Christian writing for the Australian situation. Commenting on Love Is the Spur, the judges wrote:
^^^This powerful evocation of life in the WWII Japanese POW camps of Kranji and Changi ministers to the heart, by presenting a unique account of a Christian struggling with his faith under extreme circumstances, while thinking about the big issues of good and evil, sin and God ... This is a remarkable account of the difference it makes to follow Jesus Christ in the most terrible circumstances.
^^^Geoff Bingham gives an unmistakable Christian voice to a pivotal period of history.
