Athanatos Christian Ministries (ACM) announces submissions are now being accepted for the Poetry Division in the 2013 Christian Writing Contest. ACM wants to inspire young Christians to take up the pen and promote the Christian world view through the pen. ACM believes that the the secular world is constantly promoting itself through the arts and that Christians should be prepared to fight back. Thus, the Gospel of Christ should be communicated through music, movies, plays, art, literature … and poetry. The purpose of this writing contest is to create a culture of quality writing reflecting a Christian world view.
The Athanatos Christian Ministries (ACM) Christian Writing Contest is an outgrowth of ACM’s desire to develop a genre of fiction that might be called ‘literary apologetics.’ Apologetics is the defense of the Christian faith. Literary apologetics would be the use of fiction and Story to communicate the Gospel and the world view associated with it. In this way, many readers might receive the Christian message and consider it whereas they might distrust it if presented propositionally.
ACM is an apologetics ministry, but one that encourages as many ‘methods’ as possible to defend the faith. The arts and literature are one area where the secular community used to reign supreme. However, this is changing, and ACM aims to facilitate that change. This writing contest is part of that strategy.
Poets wishing to submit entries into the 2013 Christian Writing Contest have until March 18, 2013 to enter. For entry information and complete contest details, please visit the official contest site.
