The purpose of ChristianWritingToday.com (CWT) is to help Christians gain a vision to reach a wider audience through the written and spoken word. There are plenty of Christians who are writing and speaking to each other. However, there are few who are breaking through the stained-glass barrier and using their writing skills to reach others with a Christian worldview.
A Christian writer is not necessarily someone who writes on Christian topics, but someone who addresses all topics with Christian values.
CWT is for those who want to transmit Christian values through their writing and reach a diverse range of people in a context they will understand.
