Among this year’s winners of the Athanatos Christian Ministries’ short story and poetry contests, Therese Eby of Irving received first place, the Hieropraxis Gerard Manley Hopkins Award, for her poem, Herodia.”
The fourth annual contest saw some winning entries that many Christians may feel "push the envelope" but are nonetheless consistent with ACM's goals.
"If our stories only connect with believers, we fail as a Christian apologetics ministry,” said Anthony Horvath, ACM's executive director.
Including this year's contests, ACM distributed nearly $15,000 in cash awards since it first began its literary apologetics ministries.
The top honor in the short story competition went to David Sable for his tale, The God of Oscar’s Misunderstanding.”
The stories and poems can be read online at www.christianwritingcontest.com.
