9/24/15: Arts Festival Coming This Summer!
ACM will be hosting our first annual Christian Arts Festival in the summer of 2016. Join us August 4-7, 2016 in Greenwood, WI. All artistic expressions will be featured: music, film, novels, drama, the visual arts, etc. In the spirit of ACM’s mission to defend the Christian faith through the arts, the festival will encourage artists to appeal as much to secular audiences as with Christian ones.
This festival will be held in conjunction with our Christian arts contest.
It’s autumn, 1941. The Nazis have fired on the USS Greer; London is ablaze, and the streets of Leningrad are red with blood. Still, David Dremmer is content to work his father’s ranch and dream of his best friend’s wife. When the United States finally enters the war, David escapes his father’s disappointment and a loveless marriage by enlisting in the Air Corps. His choice proves fateful. His B-17 is shot down over Belgium. Now he is in the hands of the Nazis, and a deadly game of cat and mouse ensues as Second Lieutenant David Dremmer wages a private war with the Luftwaffe, the Wehrmacht, and his own conscience to save the life of a beautiful Resistance operative. It’s then he discovers that the weakness that has kept him from his dreams is, in fact, the key to becoming who he was born to be. An award-winning, lyrical novel, Jesse’s Seed explores the power of choice, finality, love, and redemption. Learn more at www.sampakan.com.
This issue of Pathos wrestles with the idea of the perfect: the perfect revelation, the perfect vacation, the perfect world, even the perfect vomit. Also, an essay on human identity from P.C. Cely, a new story from Graham Kell and more.
The Warden Watch – AR Horvath
Casey has stumbled upon a secret: ‘Big Foot’ is real, after all, but its place among the Warden-Watch turns out to be far more mysterious than the myth itself. As one so-called myth after another turns out to be rooted in fact and reality-albeit in wholly unexpected ways-Casey finds himself craning his neck to catch a glimpse… of the Blood King. The Warden-Watch is the first installment from the Annals of Myrtle and the Blood-King.
RECENTLY RELEASED:A Fall of Sparrows by Paul J. Bennett! Paul weaves a story of freedom, redemption, and human dignity set in the south during the American Civil War. Available on Amazon and Kindle.
Paul Bennett grew up in Bainbridge, Georgia and is a lifelong student of American history, especially the Civil War and the hardships associated with that tragic period. Having been raised on stories of American heroes, his greatest honor has been the opportunity to write about those heroes who loved their neighbors as themselves.
Paul attended Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia and there met his wonderful wife, Jenice. He currently lives in Forest, Virginia where he practices Internal Medicine. He has a special interest in black powder firearms, but the most enjoyable times during the day are always spent with his wife and their two sons James and Daniel.

BY JOSEPH E. KEYSOR:
A vast amount of books have been written purporting to explain Hitler, and yet mystery remains. Can it be that there are important aspects of the Hitler problem that lie outside the confines of safely conventional history? That there are vital questions of good and evil, of truth and falsehood, or that secular wisdom is completely incapable of dealing with? Author Joseph Keysor contends in this book that some essential biblical teachings can contribute more to an understanding of the Holocaust and the Third Reich than many realize. These include: the origins of the Jewish people and the bizarre hatreds that have pursued t
hem; our innate human potential for great good, or for great evil; abiding standards of ethics that allow us to say unequivocally that evil exists; the failure of the churches to oppose Hitler; the catastrophic effects of denying God and his laws and relying on reason alone.
Keysor argues that, contrary to what now passes for conventional wisdom, biblical teaching is highly relevant to modern life. Taken as literal and inspired truth, the Bible is light in the darkness, and a sure guide through the dark jungles of ugly and destructive modernism.

Read Dr. Holly Ordway’s The Vision of Literary Apologetics.
From the Director:
Naturally, you want to know what Athanatos means. Athanatos is Greek for ‘immortality’ or, ‘not dying.’ If Christianity is true, that’s what we are: immortal. We are adventurers unleashed for glory, freed from the burden of sin and made fearless in the face of death. This ministry is the outgrowth of my apologetics ministries over the last decade.
No longer do I believe that the best, exclusive use of my time is to reach out to and contend with atheists. Today I believe that the Church needs to expand its vision and methods in order to keep people from falling away in the first place.
The United States is a mission field. There are some things that matter to people today (like stories, movies, etc) that we can use but have been needlessly abandoned to secularists. It is partly the aim of this ministry to re-capture and re-employ what was always properly within the domain of Christian thought.
That means that Athanatos Christian Ministries will strive to produce thoughtful educational programs that are consistent with historic, orthodox, creedal Christianity, but also seek to connect through literature, through music, through story, among other methods we might imagine. Athanatos Christian Ministries is a big picture organization. Anyone interested in joining us or learning more is invited to contact us to see just what can be done.
