For a while now I’ve been writing my own gospel tracts and making them available for other Christians to use. While I do believe personal (conversational) evangelism is the best kind of evangelism, gospel tracts are still a wonderful means of spreading the good news of Jesus Christ. They serve as a means to get the gospel into the hands of the lost if there is no opportunity for conversation, or they can be used as a supplement to conversational evangelism. I often find that handing a person a tract opens up a door for conversation. Charles Spurgeon said,
When preaching and private talk are not available, you have a tract read, and this is often an effectual method. Some tracts would not convert a beetle; there is not enough in them to interest a fly. Get good striking tracts, or none at all. But a telling, touching gospel tract may often be the seed of eternal life; therefore, do not go out without your tracts.
Spurgeon, the “Prince of Preachers,” used gospel tracts, for he recognized their importance. By “good striking tracts” he means tracks with good, biblical content. While tracts are a great way of spreading the gospel, all too often I come across tracts that either have very little Scriptural content or tracts that are outright unbiblical. We need gospel tracts that have a good amount of biblical material, provide clear explanations, and faithfully communicate the truth of Jesus Christ and the salvation He has accomplished for sinners.
I have sought to produce such tracts. I always aim to produce a simple outline, with clear explanations, and key Scriptures. We want to make sure that we don’t water down the gospel, but at the same time we want to make sure that we present the gospel in as understandable a fashion as possible. I pray that you find these tracts biblical and useful. May the Lord use them for His glory in the salvation of lost souls.
Gospel Tract #1 (“Good News of Grace”; Bookmark Style; Front & Back; 5 per sheet; The font looks really small in the pdf, but once it’s printed, the font is easily readable. Also, there’s a third, blank page in the pdf. Just ignore that.)
Gospel Tract #2 (Brochure Style; 2 per sheet or 4 per sheet if you want them really small)
Gospel Tract #3 (“The Four Pillars of the Gospel: God, Man, Christ, Command”; Regular Printout; 3 pages)
Note: You may have to do a few trial prints before you figure out exactly how you need to go about printing Gospel tracts #1 and #2. While I definitely recommend using cardstock for these tracts, I would use regular printing paper for the trial prints.
