Membership in CCL is open to all who are interested in its purposes and programs. Membership includes a subscription to the quarterly journal, Christianity & Literature, information about CCL's upcoming regional conferences, and an invitation to CCL events at the Modern Language Association annual convention.


From its beginnings more than 65 years ago to the present day, the Conference on Christianity and Literature has been committed to strengthening both the life of the mind and the fellowship of the spirit. CCL sponsors a journal, Christianity & Literature, that promotes the highest standards of scholarship and provides a forum for scholarly exploration of how literature engages Christian thought, experience, and practice. CCL also sponsors regional conferences and featured events at the Modern Language Association annual convention, such as a CCL-sponsored session on the conference program and a CCL reception held during the convention.
