Celebrating ACABA 2021 Awardees and Their Relentless Efforts to Answer God's Writing Calling for Them

From disruptive challenges in writing and publishing, to out-of-this-world perseverance to get books in the hands of readers, this issue celebrates ACABA’s 2021 awarded authors and their relentless efforts to answer God’s writing calling for them.

Books that are impacting the African continent

There are several ways that books will influence our lives in Africa. This is by giving us insight into how other people in our continent and other continents live for Jesus Christ. They also broaden our worldview and influence our thoughts on social, moral and faith issues. The more we read as a continent, the better people we become.

While we have consumed great imported content in the past, this season has seen a rise in the creation of local content. Now the task lies in creating the demand for the same in an information-flooded era. It can be done and today we start with ACABA and twelve top content books and authors from Kenya and Uganda. It’s a journey of a thousand steps…Here’s the first one!

  • Being an Editor in Chief for this edition was such an honour for me. Having read all the stories featured, I was moved greatly to reflect again on the WHY we do what we do at CLC Kenya and ACABA. The impact God is causing in His authors and their recipients, is so real and tangible. I am grateful to God that I can participate in amplifying these messages.

    Also working alongside amazing missioners has been humbling and very fulfilling. I love hardworkers and I am glad to see the fruit of these hardworker’s labour of love.

    May God be glorified and His Kingdom advanced through Christian literature in Africa and beyond.

    If for nothing else, may we know that there are seasoned African Christian Authors advancing the continent’s narrative to the Glory of God. It was a very moving experience for me, to work alongside the CLC Kenya team as a Managing Editor,to put this magazine together. God is speaking to His people, regarding the harvest and this continent. The African Authors have answered the call.

    • CLC Kenya April 20, 2022

      Thank you Joan. You are a great Managing Editor.

    This magazine is an amazing first step. Telling our African stories through our books and writing calls is a great initiative. The stories are so touching and remind us that God is at work in our nations and continent.

    For many years African Christian Authors have been yearning for a platform to share their writing journeys. The magazine and ACABA will now enable the authors to reach greater heights.

    Having witnessed the the journey of seeing Authors moving from submissions to being Nominees and reading their writing journeys which brought me to tears at times when they were sharing and seeing them overcome the challenges and choosing African Christian Authors Book Award ACABA to soar to higher heights is realy a humbling experience

    You reading it will be a way of saying I am creating, recognizing, promoting a reading culture In Africa and beyond

    • CLC Kenya April 26, 2022

      Thank you Jackie. We appreciate your consistency in building a reading culture in Africa.

    Kudos to the CLC team for your commitment to propagating the Word of God through Christian literature in Africa. I was personally touched by the writing journey of Daisy Mugiira who was inspired to write her book due to a family issue that left her mother heartbroken.
    I was impressed with the fact that she made efforts to encourage teens to make wise decisions with issues of sex and relationships so as to prevent others from making similar mistakes. This was based on the experience her own sister went through.
    It is my hope that we are all inspired by the circumstances we find ourselves in to make a better way for others to follow. Kudos to Daisy and all other African writers out there!
