Holmen, WI (PRWEB) February 25, 2013
The deadline for writers to submit material for the poetry and short story divisions of Athanatos Christian Ministries (ACM) 2013 Christian Writing Contest is three weeks from today. All entries for these divisions must be received by Monday, March 18, 2013. 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.”
