Arts and literature are areas 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. - Anthony Horvath, ACM Executive Director

Athanatos Christian Ministries (ACM) is accepting entries for the poetry and short story divisions for the 2013 Christian Writing Contest. The 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 Executive Director, Anthony Horvath says, “ACM is an apologetics ministry, but one that encourages as many ‘methods’ as possible to defend the faith.” He adds, “Arts and literature are areas 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.”

Authors 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.
