Before you can share the gospel with someone, you must first get their attention. The world knows how to get and hold people's attention... with pictures! Television, movies, comics, etc. Chick tracts use the same technique, using irresistible cartoon pictures to grab the reader's attention. Nobody, young or old, can resist cartoons.
"I remember Chick tracts from my childhood. They made such a lasting impression on me that to this very day my mental picture of judgment day is that picture in This Was Your Life! I never forgot that tract. I'm now 31... I enjoy leaving Chick tracts places I go and especially sending them in letters. They are great and have a powerful witnessing tool. Like I said, they left impressions on me that I remember 23 years later."
Once attracted by the cartoon, people are drawn into Chick tracts by the interesting real-life or dramatic stories. The combination of dramatic stories and cartoons make Chick tracts irresistible. Many Christians who were discouraged because their wordy tracts were rejected or thrown on the ground have been thrilled to see how readily people accept Chick tracts. The devil doesn't mind it when Christians hand out gospel tracts... just as long as nobody reads them. But when Chick tracts are distributed, he blows a fuse, because he knows that nobody can resist them. "Chick tracts GET READ!" It's more than a motto...it's a fact!
"My dad thinks Christians are 'Sky Pilots.' But the other day my mother caught him reading Room 310. Praise God."
Once hooked by the cartoons and drawn in by the dramatic stories, readers soon learn that woven into each story is a basic gospel message, presented in a way that anyone can understand. No deep theological concepts, no confusion, just a simple gospel message, showing that everyone must be born again through faith in Jesus Christ.
"I just wanted to share something wonderful with you. My grandson is 10 years old and accepted Jesus when he was 6 and told the preacher that it was the best day of his life. I just got the word from my son that my grandson led my 7 year old granddaughter to the Lord using your Chick tract The Little Princess.
NO THEOLOGICAL TRAINING NEEDED
Many Christians feel they are not qualified to witness because they don't have the necessary theological training. They fear being asked questions they cannot answer. But with Chick tracts, that fear is eliminated. Every Chick tract presents the basic gospel message for you. Plus, each tract includes several Scripture verses that people can look up if they want to verify what is being said. Then, the last page leads the reader with step-by-step instructions on how to get saved, and even includes a sample prayer. No, you don't have to be a Bible scholar to witness... all you need are Chick tracts.
"I am 10 years old. I think that your tracts are wonderful. I led a friend to the Lord using your tracts."
YOU CAN EVEN WITNESS TO INTIMIDATING PEOPLE
You know he's lost... you know he needs to be saved... and you'd love to witness to him. But like Rocco, here, he's much too intimidating. No problem! Just leave a few Chick tracts where he's sure to find them. God has used Chick tracts to melt the coldest and hardest of hearts.
"My prayers have been answered! For so long I have been praying for a way to witness and now I have found one. You are exactly right about people being afraid of witnessing for Christ in front of crowds. I surely am!"
BEING SHY IS NOT A PROBLEM
Many Christians would love to witness, but feel they are too shy. Chick tracts solve that problem. Just leave Chick tracts wherever you go. People will find them...and read them. We have received hundreds of testimonies from people who have gotten saved after reading a Chick tract that they found.
"It has never been easy for me to witness to people, but giving out Chick tracts has made it joyfully easy to do."
"I found a copy of This Was Your Life in a phone booth one day and shortly thereafter I accepted the Lord as my Saviour."

Chick tracts are never a waste of time because God promised His Word would never return void.
"So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth; it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
"He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him."
