This tract is part of our Access for All range, where care has been taken to write in clear, simple English, so it is accessible to the widest range of adults and those with English as an additional language.
I fine this tract helpful in stimulating discussion, it is not one that I would just hand out that would not explore its potential.
We used this on our free literature table for our Easter services. Its message is clear and the format of the booklet makes it easy to read. Several people attending our Easter activities took it. I would definately order it again.
We only ordered 25 of these tracts, but they were all gone after one Easter service. I found the 4 point explanation of what happened on Good Friday very clear and very helpful.
I was a little less pleased with what we need to do in response to this. Becoming God's friends seems such a poor alternative of becoming His children and rescuer doesn't have the same ring to it as Saviour.
However, the design is great, the front and back simple but attractive and we will order this tract again.
We ordered this leaflet for our church at Easter and have been using it ever since. It's strenghs are it uses scripture (the account of the crucifixion in Mark's Gospel). Then it explains the key points (the darkness, the cry, the curtain in the temple being torn and the Roman commanders reaction) in a quick and simple way. It ends with a challenge and then simply lays out what it means to become a Christian. The cover design is simple and atractive and the back allows plenty of room for a contact address or number. It is ideal as a leaflet to be given away when doing door-to-door evangelism or to be put on display for people to take at a back of a church.
Disappointing that so much evangelistic material today, like this tract, talk about sin as primarily spoiling our lives and hurting other people and separating us from God, so we cannot be God's friend. This is all me-centred - but sin is against God, it is high treason against the God of the universe - it is utterly awful. The true character of sin must be clear if true repentance is going to follow - real hatred of sin and a desparation to be rid of it. The idea of sin being a 'problem that needs solving' is not helpful - if someone had murdered my wife, I would not talk about this offence as a problem that had come between me and the murderer.
Can we be bolder in our tract writing?
