Ever wondered why so few people seem to understand the Gospel these days? For many, the problem is that they have simply never had the whole story clearly explained from the beginning—and so they are left confused.

Today, soul-winners world-wide are rediscovering the effectiveness of sharing the Gospel chronologically—starting in Genesis. That is what this video does. Great numbers of souls are being won as a result!

We made presentations on this video at Amsterdam 2000. Interest was phenomenal. Our display area (which discussed this and our Creation evangelism videos) was mobbed day after day. Our crew was often pinned to the walls by eager evangelists from many nations who see its value and want to put it to work in their ministry. The Billy Graham Association staff members said that ours was the most popular display.

God’s Story is available in over 28 languages, and you can read (and listen to) all the content on-line at our God’s Story Web site—ChristianAnswers.Net/godstory. The site is illustrated and available in multiple languages. Over 100,000 people a month are using it.

If you are interested in evangelism, try this video. The approach is wise and effective. It combines the efforts of talented Christians, including Hollywood actor Dean Jones and a top Hollywood illustrator.

“Even in the most primitive areas of the world, people have videos,” say Wycliffe Bible translators.

Included is a sheet that shows how leaders/teachers can show this 80 minute video in three separate segments (20-28 minutes long) or as 14 individual stories (of varying lengths, from 10 minutes to 1 minute).

The Bible story telling video, “God’s Story: From Creation to Eternity,” wonderfully impacts viewers of all ages, no matter their social or economic status, or their ethnic and cultural backgrounds. The reason for this success can be summed up in two words, “chronological storytelling.” This dynamic method of communication is not new. In fact, God used this style of presentation throughout the Bible.

In the New Testament, when the confused disciples on the road to Emmaus puzzled about Jesus’ death on the cross, the risen promised Savior himself, Jesus Christ, came alongside scolding, “O slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken!” Then, starting in Genesis, Jesus used the Old Testament Scripture to “explain things concerning himself.”

Positive—This is an excellent tool! A breakthrough, really. I have used this video in several ways: 1) through my church to help in classes where new believers or those interested in Christianity get an overview of the Bible and an understanding of salvation, 2) outreach in my community with local international students and families (in their own language like Farsi, Arabic, Spanish, and others). If you are interested at all in evangelism, this is highly recommended. The international audiences I showed this too were captivated, especially to see a video in their heart language!

It will play well in any culture and really get Christ’s message of hope across to the viewers.
