The CCL Lifetime Achievement Award honors great artists and scholars who have enabled us to think more profoundly, more intelligently, more critically, and more
self-critically about the relations between literature and Christian faith and practice.
In honoring them, CCL affirms the value of the religious dimension in literature and scholarship and draws attention to the issues that guide the organization and its members' intellectual commitments.
