What are others saying about this tool?
“Men on death row have studied these lessons and found new hope.
Small groups, families, Sunday school classes and individuals have
found this study to be helpful.”
Dr. Charles Brock
“I have given this red book to people all over Red River Parish
and God is bringing them to Christ as they read it and the Holy
Spirit convicts their hearts. It has truly been a blessing of the
Lord to utilize the red books. There are several stories, but thus
far my favorite is a young lady who accepted Jesus as her personal
Lord and Savior. The next time I saw her, she requested another one
for her fiancée. Then, I gave her 10 books to pass out as well!
Richard Carey from our church taught the Red Book in discipleship
training on Sunday evenings. For the last several weeks, he and I
have gone once a week distributing them. Recently we gave 2, shared
testimony, the gospel, and prayed with these 2 fellows. We are
already planning follow up. I strongly recommend churches using
these as part of their evangelism ministry in their churches. It
truly is an exceptional way to get folks to have an opportunity to
hear about the Gospel. ”
Rev. Richard Kaufman
Martin Baptist Church
“We use these booklets each week in our GROW outreach and people
are receptive and being transformed. The Redbooks are a vital part
of our evangelistic teams (GROW) here at FBC Castor in two ways.
1)They have helped arm our people with the knowledge and confidence
needed to share the Gospel. 2) It is a tool in their hand at each
visit to use and give away, so that each person or persons visited
can see the Gospel for their self. ”
Rev. Preston Young
First Baptist, Castor
The Good News For You books come in multiple languages (English,
Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, Portuguese, German, Russian, etc.) The
