PENSPEAK

Introduction
There is no doubt that Christian Literature intends to teach us the Word without the limit to the printed forms of literature. Today there is an abundance of things being said and written in the name of Christ, to the point where many grow weary of reading it all. King Solomon warns,
“be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.” (Ecclesiastes 12:12)

There are no easy answers to the question of how Christians should approach literature and literary studies. We have tried to show that the situation is complex, open and challenging. Today, there is a moment in academic criticism when the study of religion and its relation to literature has become more viable because those who do not necessarily share that kind of belief have recognized its importance.
Our culture and belief may question the privileged position Christian institutions once had; but it is full of invitations to re-examine its ideas, texts and reading practices for a new situation which Penspeak offers.

The Penspeak
Penspeak is an initiative of the Christ-A-Poet Team to give a platform to the preaching of the gospel through poetry and other forms of literature. Contrary to the common belief of the expression of literature in only written form, Penspeak seeks to make known to the world especially to teeming youth what treasure that is hidden in the pages of great literary works such as the Bible, motivational books, internet volumes and of course original literary works from indigenous authors and poets.
We give a stage for the writer to speak and the listener to receive inspiration, correction, humor and understanding; all to one primary goal- that God is glorified in our art and lives!
Penspeak is also a means to reach out to the literary community and preach the gospel of Christ in their own terms such that it makes sense to the truth that Christ is in fact interested with them, their talents and is ready to use them and celebrate them in this world and the one to come.microphone_1

Who does Penspeak belong to?
Penspeak was created by the inspiration of God,
For the writer,
For lovers of literature
For those who love Jesus

It is designed  to accommodate sections for spoken word poetry, short stories, inspirational/motivational speaking, music, fine art, dance, worship all packaged in a fine mix to give any and everyone present an unforgettable experience in God’s presence.

It will feature Christ-A-Poet writers as well as guest writers all auditioned before the date so as to give a well-rounded presentation. The music, dance, and other non-literary presentations will be handled strictly by invitation.

Trust me! You have got to be at the next one!
