I first read Chick tracts when I was 20 as a U.S. Marine on a ship. A Navy
Corpsman left Chick tracts on our table and we would sit around and read them.
We were drunk all the time and listening to heavy/death metal.
This Was Your Life,
and Angels really made me aware of my need for salvation. We never
would have gone to church or put up with preaching but we all read those
tracts, dozens of times.
I got saved five years later and currently use Chick tracts to share
the gospel with people. Here are some tract passing tips:
- Write "free" on them and leave them on the counter when you pay for gas.
- Wait by newspaper machines and offer some free "good news" with their paper.
- Offer them to lost friends by using a "catchy" lead-in to the story.
I am an avid reader, so I usually check out 10-15 books at a time from my
library. When I return them, I place a tract in each one. I also place a
tract in each of my children`s school books when they return them at the
end of the year. Big Daddy
is my choice for the science books. Thank you for writing that tract,
it seems that so few are aware of the errors of Darwinism, myself included
before I read your tract!
Every now and then I receive one of those chain letters. Instead of throwing
it out I use the five addresses to send a tract. I put a note with it
saying I don`t need any of the recipes or whatever. Just think! Addresses
of five people sent that you would never otherwise have.

When I return a rental car, I slip a tract down into the spare tire area.
Some one will find it while changing a tire when they probably need a spiritual
lift. Also, I love the King of Kings
comic book. Sometimes I leave them lying in areas where I have seen
teenagers hang out, like the stair landings in urban apartments. I always
leave them open to page 8, the garden of Eden story.
