"Why do I need to be saved?" "From what?"
These are common questions in today's society. Salvation can be a difficult concept to explain to a postmodern thinker. Fortunately, God's Word provides many ways of looking at our situation, and at God's solution. 24 Ways to Explain the Gospel contains dozens of word pictures and illustrations that will help you communicate the gospel in ways everyone can understand.
14 panels, fits inside most Bibles, 8.5 x 5.5 inches, unfolds to 38 inches long.

The Bible is full of illustrations that use common experiences, such as gardening, having debt, a campfire, or joining a family, to explain what Jesus accomplished on the cross. In 24 Ways to Explain the Gospel, you will see 24 metaphors from the Bible, positive and negative examples, and several illustrations that show how the positive/negative examples can be explained. (A metaphor is a figure of speech in which a word or phrase compares or describes something. For example: "A mighty fortress is our God" - "mighty fortress" is a metaphor to help to describe God.)

Below is an example from 24 Ways to Explain the Gospel:
  • Metaphor: Light - Jesus is the light that shines on our path toward God (John 12:46)
  • Positive examples: Light - Jesus is the light of the world (John 8:12)
    • Jesus' light shines in our heart (2 Cor. 4:4-6)
    • Children of the light (Eph. 5:8)
    • Jesus has rescued us from darkness (Col. 1:13)
    • Putting aside the deeds of darkness (Romans 13:12)
  • Negative examples: Dark - People living in darkness have seen a great light (Matt. 4:16)
    • People loved darkness (John 3:19)
  • Illustrations - A campfire in the wilderness provides light, warmth, safety and sustenance.
    • The light helps campers to find their way back to camp. It provides warmth for the night. It keeps the animals away. It cooks food and purifies water.
    • In a similar way, Jesus provides us with a guiding light, warmth, safety, and sustenance for our journey of life.
Discussion questions for 24 Ways to Explain the Gospel

  1. Read panels 1-4. Which of these ways of explaining the Gospel helps you personally see the good news differently? Was there one that stood out? If so, why?
  2. Read panels 5-6, paying attention to the word "redemption" and what it meant in the biblical world. Which metaphor of redemption connected with you the most? Why?
  3. Read panel 7. Imagine yourself explaining the Gospel to someone using one of these plans. Which one fits your style the most? Which one fits your friend? What would you do differently?

Review by: Paul Dare - September 27, 2011
This is a great little booklet and one I would highly recommend to every preaching and teaching pastor in any local church. Every sermon we preach should lead back to the Gospel in some regard. When he preached, Charles Spurgeon used to say he would read his text and then make a bee-line to Christ as quickly as possible!

The illustrations packed in Rose’s 24 Ways To Explain The Gospel pamphlet will help you connect your teachings to the good news of Jesus Christ every time. In addition to the 24 individual illustrations, this pamphlet also includes four popular models for sharing the Gospel including Campus Crusades “Four Spiritual Laws”, Navigators “Bridge to Life”, Billy Graham’s “Steps to Peace with God” and of course the much heralded "Romans Road". This is a great booklet to keep handy and read every few months to build a solid Gospel-thinking foundation so you can illustrate the good news to everyone you meet and engage with in conversation.
