Are Gospel Tracts Effective
The Actes and Monuments of Martyrs 1583 publication by the Protestant Reformer Iohn Foxe explains at length that the Protestant Reformer Iohn Wickliffe (dismayed by the extreme superstition and ignorance of his day) wrote in papers the Gospel truth to weed out errors in men's hearts.
The Gospel tracts written by true Christians like Iohn Wickliffe are very effective.
Galatians 3:24, Wherefore the Law was our scholemaster to bring vs to Christ, that we might be made righteous by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer vnder a scholemaster. For ye are all the sonnes of God by faith, in Christ Iesus.

Some gospel tracts are good, and some are not so good.

I do wonder how many tracts are given out where people sign the last page and think they are saved. After that one may go thru life thinking they are saved when they are not. The wicked one will make us think we are saved. How many people are in hell because of a tract?

Isaiah 55:11 (New Living Translation)
11) It is the same with my word.
I send it out, and it always produces
It will accomplish all I want it to,
and it will prosper everywhere I send it.

My conviction is that if you are afraid to open your mouth (the way God meant for the gospel to be preached), you must not really believe it is the power of God to begin with and use tracts just so you can say you "witnessed". How many witnesses in a court of law hand over a tract or a written note when they are asked a question? None. They are required to open their mouths and speak.

#1 While I believe that gospel tracts can be useful in theory, I find that the vast majority offer little more than a short burst of rhetoric. One-on-one witnessing will always be more effective, as in this situation a person's particular questions or doubts can be more accurately addressed.

#2 The only effective tracts I have ever come across was a series of seven sheets that each debunked a common anti-Christian myth or argument. These tracts used a combination of reason and faith in introducing spirituality to others, which I think is the best way to bring Christ's love to someone who does not have faith.

If you mean those little books with bible stories and teachings about God..well, I love those and I learn quite a lot from them. I get them in my mail and read them all the time.

Gospel tracts are effective IF used correctly. One of the most effective types of tracts are in "cartoon" format. Also tracts are more effective if the person receiving the tract knows the person who is giving it to them. Even if the message is rejected at that time, they know who to contact if they later want to.

WE have an evangelists that teaches how to use tracts and we have tracts at the church to pass out - it works if you work it.
Mima maybe it was that they were just interested in baseball.
One soul saved - one eternity- how much value does God put on one eternity.
I once manned the phones for months and only once got a call from someone to recieve Christ - I think that was a success.
and yes Mima I know you value every one. and i do listen - you convict me to share my faith more.

I believe that they can be effective if the information contained in them is accurate - God uses many means to reach people. I also believe that it is beneficial to have contact information included on the tract so that a newly reached person has access to some real live Christians.

"Five people worked these two days and the net result was two souls saved."
Wow! I guess you didn't think those two souls were worth all that work. I'm sure the Angels in Heaven rejoiced anyway. Gospel tracts have always proved an effective way to evangelize for our ministry team.

You will never know exactly how many people are actually saved because of a tract that you give out. But God does!
---Susie on 8/19/07|
Yes and yes again. Tracts are very effective. One of my favorite ways to minister to others. They fitly nicely and neatly in one's handbag or any small space.I can pass someone in the grocery store, neighborhood, bathroom anywhere. Hand them a tract and I have shared the word of God with them. The seed has been planted. God's does the watering. I highly recommend tracts as a witnessing tool.

depends which one you choose. I have seen & given away many tracts that were useful, however I found that the best source was not a tract but the bible.
---candice on 8/18/07|
Absolutely Gospel tracts are effective. Many people have been saved just because of a Gospel tract they found lying around. I use tracts and it's fun to see people pick them up after leaving them in a public place, like a phone booth or in a laundromat. My favorites are cartoon tracts by Chick Publications 'cause everyone loves cartoons. I would encourage anyone to check out thier web site. You can read and order them online as well as email a tract to someone for free.

#1-I'm hoping to see many answers to this question. My answer to this question is an resounding NO!!! I once took part in a program that passed down 17,000 tracks in a today, at one location(major-league baseball stadium) in Phoenix, Arizona. Five people worked these two days and the net result was two souls saved. And those two were people who had been witnessed to one on one.
