‘Like Jacob’s Well’ named best first book by Presbyterian author

Like Jacob’s Well, a 125-year history of Highland Presbyterian Church in Louisville, has been recognized by the Presbyterian Writers Guild as the best first book by a Presbyterian author.

The Guild will honor the book’s authors, former Courier-Journal editors Bill and Linda Ellison of Louisville, with the 2009 James Angell Award at its June meeting in Atlanta.

The Ellisons’ book was chosen from 14 considered by a committee in Texas. The choices included works produced by Presbyterian ministers and scholars, as well as a woman who won a 1997 Pulitzer Prize as an investigative reporter for The Los Angeles Times.

Bill Ellison serves as the chairman of the Kentucky Humanities Council board of directors.
