Sounds pretty cool all around, though I worry it's going to attract a lot of the typical "Vatican keeps a secret warrior sect of witch-hunting templars" or whatnot kind of entries. There's enough of that in standard light novel fare.

Submissions are allowed to critique Christianity and Christ; the FAQ states that Christ is not such a petty god that he'd get angry over a light novel. Stories can even take the point of view of Satan or include Buddha.


Now THAT is a super cool idea.

the one that won last time sounds like a total joke. like, it sounds like something someone would make up as a joke. oh man, its so funny


but I like how lax the rules seem to be. it's nice that they're open minded about it, though I guess they'd have to be considering the low amount of christians in japan

I wish the pastor LN was translated. I'd absolutely read it.

Very insightful contest. Hope there is a winner that breaks the mould and creates an original trope. Cool

In Another World with my Bible: Converting Heathens One Crusade at a Time! Heck, you could even have it sort of make sense if you just say that it's a timeline branch where everything concerning the life and death of Jesus was still the same rather than a completely parallel timeline. And of course, Peter is genderbent to become a waifu.

How about Christian Yuri? There are some LGBT-friendly Christian sects.

The winner was 17-Sai no Bokushidakedo Nani ka Shitsumon Aru? (Yeah I'm a 17-year-old pastor, Any Questions?) by Isaku Takayama. The romantic comedy novel follows Yehoshua Satō, the world's youngest pastor, as he travels through Japan as a missionary after the death of his parents, who were pastors at an isolated Protestant church. Yehoshua hasn't read all of the Bible but he discovers there are a lot of girls at church and everyone seems to adore him.


This is exactly what I expected to win, haha.

Edit: I found the photo of the light-novel in question.
