Christianity Today honors Moore for Tempted and Tried

Communications Staff — January 4, 2012

Southern Seminary’s Russell D. Moore received the award of merit for his book, Tempted and Tried: Temptation and the Triumph of Christ (Crossway), from Christianity Today in the magazine’s 2012 book awards. Tempted and Tried was nominated in the Christian living category.

Moore’s book deals with the nature and place of temptation, seeking to help followers of Christ fight against it by looking to the one who was, as Moore writes, “tried in every way we are but who was never anything but triumphant.”

Moore, SBTS dean of the School of Theology, senior vice president for academic administration and professor of Christian theology and ethics, discussed Tempted and Tried, among other things, in an interview published in the April 11, 2011, “Towers” issue (pages 8-9). The issue provides a brief review of the book as well (page 10). The April 11, 2011, “Towers” is available at
