A Calvinist’s Trek to the most Evangelistic Gospel Tract
September 26, 2012

Dan Phillips of Team Pyro recently found himself in my kind of conundrum while looking for good and solid evangelistic gospel tracts….
Many tracts are overly simplistic; and yet, on the other hand, it defeats the purpose of a tract to hand someone the Collected Works of John Owen. Apart from being overly simplistic, most rub me the wrong way as a Bibley person, which is to say, a Calvinist. I know that good Calvinists folks disagree with me on this, but as I’ve explained a number of times, I don’t find it apostolically precedented or necessary to tell unbelievers “Jesus died for your sins.” The apostles evidently didn’t feel they had to say it, and neither do I. To me, as I’ve explained, assuring an unrepentant unbeliever that Jesus died for his sins is tantamount to saying “You’re saved and have nothing to worry about from God: He accepts and forgives you just as you are.”
So, having said that:
What tracts have you found useful?
Please explain how and why. Evaluation from a Biblical (and therefore) Calvinistic perspective would be terrific. Anecdotes would be terrific.
Links to where they can be bought would also be terrific.
There is a very good set of answers to Dan’s conundrum. See the answers.
