Publisher's Description

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.


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.

For a group study, volunteers might take turns reading a paragraph.
  1. Read panels 1-4. Which of these ways of explaining the Gospel helps you personally see the good news differently? Was there one that stood out? If so, why?
  2. Read panels 5-6, paying attention to the word redemption and what it meant in the biblical world. Which metaphor of redemption connected with you the most? Why?
  3. Read panel 7. Imagine yourself explaining the Gospel to someone using one of these plans. Which one fits your style the most? Which one fits your friend? What would you do differently?
  4. Read panels 8-10, and discuss the idea of citizenship. How does the concept of being a citizen of the kingdom of heaven appeal to people today? Which metaphor in this section connects with you and why?
  5. Read panels 11-13, and spend some time on the biblical definition of the word sin. What aspects of sin and redemption were new to you? How does the Gospel help us heal our relationship with God and with the people around us?

    Metaphors approach

    This review was written for 24 Ways to Explain the Gospel, Pamphlet.
    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 and uses common experiences in our life to help people to connect to concepts of religion. As a voice for foster children one metaphor important to me at this time 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 in Christ can call upon God and He is their Abba, "Daddy." Other pairings of the metaphor uses Relationships of friend and enemy. Charts are colorful and clearly define the elements of the metaphors: positive and negative followed by several Biblical illustrations. The writers approach was fresh and new to me and gave me much information to process. I received this PDF from Rose Publishing for honest opinion.

    Evangelism Made Easy

    This review was written for 24 Ways to Explain the Gospel, Pamphlet.
    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.
