The Catholic Media Association (CMA) has been uniting and supporting the Catholic press for over 100 years, driven by the conviction that effective communications lie at the heart of the Catholic Church’s mission to preach the Good News to all. The annual CMA Book Awards recognize the outstanding work of publishers, authors, and editors of Catholic material. The awards go to books that are accessible to the general public and support readers in their journey to live a life of faith.

According to CMA Book Award protocol, submissions must be copyrighted in the preceding year. De Mingo’s prize-winning book was first published by Ediciones Sígueme in Spanish in 2015. The English-language version was subsequently published by Liturgical Press in 2020. 

In this book, de Mingo provides an introduction to Christian ethics by examining the New Testament according to three key concepts: happiness, virtue, and love. The text is accessible to readers who are not well-versed in Christian ethics.
