Frequently Asked Questions
What is an Anthology?
noun, plural an·thol·o·gies.
A book or other collection of selected writings by various authors, usually in the same literary form, of the same period or on the same subject.
How did Anthologies start?
It was the love child of Apex Community Staff. We are in awe of Jesus and we have a passion to tell stories. So, out of a collaboration of ideas, Anthologies was born.
How did you come up with the name Anthologies?
With a lot of coffee and a lot of love. Seriously.
What makes sharing stories different than just sharing a testimony?
We consider a “testimony” to be a story of faith, and we share those stories. But Anthologies is all stories, all walks of life. From people who are just beginning their walk with the Lord to those who have been walking with the Lord for ages. It’s about demonstrating Christ’s love and mercy through all seasons of life
What kind of stories are you looking for?
Stories that demonstrate Christ’s love and mission in the world.
How do you decide what stories to tell?
Prayerfully. No one story is better than any other. They are all stories the Lord has given us. These stories can be about good or bad decisions we make, good or bad decisions others make that affect us. In the midst of our poor choices, He is good and He is steadfast. Ultimately, we want to share every story that comes across our desk but do our utmost to make sure that we diversify our stories on a regular basis. We don’t want to post just mission stories or all testimonies - we want to keep things exciting and show the Lord's grace through many different types of stories.
