Like other GoodSeed tools, this book explains the gospel in a chronological manner from creation to the cross. This 80-page booklet is priced so that 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—especially at Easter or Christmas events. Individuals can also give the booklet like a gospel tract to family, friends and neighbours.
Using full-colour 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 gain a clear understanding of the message.
Note: A variant of this booklet is The Story that Matters. It is a 64-page booklet with identical text, but uses expressive line art instead. It is also titled for use outside of the Christmas and Easter seasons.

The books are both good. I would like to see the books divided into chapters and have the Scripture included in the text as you have done in "The Stranger".

I ordered this book to use with my ESL class of Chinese adults. Had our first class tonight and one woman told me as she came into the class - I really like this book . (She has been studying the Bible at ESL for 3 years.) It explains things well so I understand the Bible stories better. I like The Stranger on the Road to Emmaus book, but the language is too difficult for them. So we discussed the concepts introduced in What Are Christmas and Easter all About, (This week discussed the Bible, next week God, etc.) then I showed some clips from the DVD Stranger on the Road DVD (A Unique Book) stopping the DVD when asked to explain vocabulary. The students really liked this format.
