This 64-page booklet explains the gospel in a chronological manner from creation to the cross. Using expressive line art illustrations and carefully controlled text, the core message of the Bible is explained in simple-to-understand English so that even someone who uses English as a second language can clearly understand.
It is priced so it can be given away in large numbers. Churches can present these booklets to visitors or they can be given out at concerts or church programs. Individuals can also give the booklet like a gospel tract to family, friends and neighbours.
This book is a variant of What are Christmas and Easter All About? The text is identical but it uses expressive line art. It is also titled for use beyond the Christmas and Easter seasons.
There are book sleeves that wrap around The Story that Matters to enhance its appeal as a gift. For example, at a birthday or celebration, you can wrap the book with the sleeve that reads: “Thank you for celebrating with us!” Or at the funeral of a loved one, you can have a stack of books wrapped in the sleeve that reads: “The anchor of our hope and peace.” These and others sleeves help make it easy to leave someone with a clear explanation of the gospel. Check our site to see the wide variety of sleeves you can download to print off yourself. As you look over the options, we hope you will also be made aware of even more avenues for sharing the gospel. See Book Sleeves >>

We purchased these booklets for our church outreach program prior to our Christmas concert and included them as part of an invitation/gift for our neighbours. For a small booklet it is actually quite a lengthy read, but not a difficult one, with simple, straightforward language and no confusing terminology. On top of that a glossary in the back gives clarification to any words that may be less familiar for some readers. It is probably the most comprehensive overview of the Bible I have ever read in so few pages. There are questions and answers in the back for further review, giving people an opportunity to ask themselves what they truly believe. Also included is a section of Scripture references that coincide with all the pages of the book. The Gospel and our need for it is clearly presented. The only concern I have is that a great emphasis is placed on salvation leading to a perfect life in heaven, but little is mentioned about how this saving grace also results in real change in our lives here and now.
