People love them! Why?
The cover is compelling and draws people in to see if they are good enough to get to Heaven.
After they open the tract, there is a “test” with 8 questions…
…which draws them in further because it looks like they can actually be good enough to make it in. In addition to asking if they have kept the various Commandments, there are also questions like: “Have you given money to charity?” “Have you gone to church regularly?”
Then they open the tract to grade themselves; they have to read the inside to see how well they’ve done.
Wouldn’t you want to know?
The presentation of the bad news and the good news is in-depth and very clear. If people throw it away before they are done reading the tract, that’s okay; because the 10 Commandments will awaken their consciences, driving them to Christ eventually.
But the really cool thing about these tracts is that they are adaptable to any occasion—especially various holidays, (see below or click here)—if you are a little handy with the computer. (I’m not. But I do have access to a great graphics guy).
We adapted this tract for the Department of Motor Vehicles, where four open air preachers give the Gospel regularly:
For the USC football games, we changed the colors of the tract to the team colors of cardinal and gold:
Fans snatched them up thinking they were receiving important info for game time.
And on the back of the tract, we place our church information.
The best thing about these tracts is that after you hand an icebreaker to someone like the million dollar bill, you can say, “This comes with it, too,” while handing them this fuller Gospelled tract. It also makes for a great piece of information to give out to someone after you’ve shared your faith verbally.
R.A. Torrey (1856-1928) said: “Use a tract to close a conversation. As a rule when you have finished talking with some one, you should not leave him without something definite to take home to read. If the person has accepted Christ, put some tract in his hands that will show him how to succeed in the Christian life. If the person has not accepted Christ, some other tract that is especially adapted to his need should be left with him.”
Charles Spurgeon (1834 – 1892) said: “When preaching and private talk are not available, you need to have a tract read… Get good striking tracts, or none at all. But a touching Gospel tract may be the seed of eternal life. Therefore, do not go out without your tracts.”
