C.S. Lewis turns 114 today and Athanatos Christian Ministries (ACM) celebrates by opening up the 2013 Christian Writing Contest for writers to submit their original material for competition in the contest. "We are very excited to celebrate the life and work of C.S. Lewis," says ACM Executive Director, Anthony Horvath. He also adds, "Lewis is a perfect example of an author who has taken up the pen to promote the Christian world view through fiction."
The 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.
Interested writers may submit their work now through March 18, 2013.
