"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.

on 7/22/2016 New way to look at the gospel
As Christians, many of us born into the church, we have our own vocabulary. Metaphors make abstract concepts easier to understand. This pamphlet takes words like life and death using common experiences in our life to help people connect them to concepts of religion. One metaphor important to me at this time as a voice for foster children is “family.” Through Jesus, believers become part of the family of God. We are adopted and have the full rights of a son. Orphans represent life apart from God without His love. Now anyone who believes in Christ can call upon God and He is their Abba,(Daddy.) Another pairings of metaphor would be Relationships of friend and enemy. Charts are a favorite teaching tool of mine. They are colorful and clearly define the elements of the metaphors using positive and negative followed by several illustrations. The writer’s approach was fresh and new to me and gave me much information to process. This 16 page PDF was provided free by Rose for an honest review.
on 3/28/2016 Evangelism Made Easy
In 2 Timothy 4:5, The Apostle Paul told Timothy to "do the work of an evangelist." Evangelism is crucial to the Christian faith, our local church and, most importantly, to the kingdom of heaven; which is why I enjoyed reading Rose Publishing's 24 Ways to Explain the Gospel. This pamphlet serves as a great reference guide when preparing to engage in ministry and evangelism. What I most enjoyed about 24 Ways to Explain the Gospel is its complete biblical approach. As we share the Gospel message with friends, family, co-workers and potential converts, it is extremely important that we remain faithful to the foundation of the Christian faith; which is the Word of God. So I highly recommend this product for outreach groups as well as individual study.

Review by:
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.
