1 To be a better steward of resources, the BSCNC will no longer act as the agent for supplying evangelism and discipleship tracts from other organizations. We will, however, continue to resource out of our existing stock but will begin to encourage you to contact the publishers directly once those are supplies are exhausted. The purpose of this document is to facilitate this transition and provide you with those contacts in one concise document. Recommended Resource Companies Publisher Name Toll Free Phone Number Web Address American Tract Society / Crossway crossway.org/group/ats-list Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Billygrahambookstore.org Campus Crusade crustore.org e3 Resources (Evangecube) e3resources.org/shop International Tract Society itstracts.org Jesus DVD Jesusfilmstore.com Jesus Fact or Fiction, Inspirational Films Jesusfactorfiction.com NAMB nambstore.com THE FEATURE PROMOTION ITEM FOR 2014 IS THE STORY. Regional Training Conferences are being conducted across the state. Visit for more information on dates and locations. The Story is a is a 12-page, visually engaging narrative that explains the Bible's major plotline of Creation, the Fall, Rescue, and Restoration. This booklet (4.5" wide by 5.5" tall) was written with a non-christian audience in mind to explain the gospel. The booklet's conversation guide on the back panel can be used as a helpful means of engaging someone in conversation to explain the gospel through the biblical metanarrative by asking 4 major worldview questions, How did it all begin? What's gone wrong? Is there any hope? What does the future hold?

2 NEW FROM NORTH AMERICAN MISSION BOARD Life change. It all begins with a conversation. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the most profound reality of life. But sharing it with someone is as simple as three circles. Discover how you can share the gospel with anyone using the Life Conversation Guide, a companion piece to the new Life On Mission book. Produced/Distributed by: North American Mission Board Available for Purchase at: nambstore.com/products/life-onmission-conversation-guide OTHER RECOMMENDED RESOURCES STILL AVAILABLE TO ORDER THROUGH BSCNC WHILE SUPPLIES LAST Increasing ethnic diversity in North America has brought a corresponding rise in religious diversity -- making it difficult for believers to communicate the gospel effectively with friends and neighbors. Barriers & Bridges forgoes detailed history and beliefs of the 12 religions and sects it covers -- deferring to the 4truth.net website for those topics -- and jumps straight to the key practical considerations for reaching adherents. Barriers The cultural, social or religious barriers that can hinder acceptance of a biblical understanding of Jesus Christ. Bridges Points of connection that believers can use to bridge those barriers. The brochure also provides some examples of people groups that might adhere to particular religions, along with specific action steps that churches and denominational groups can take to help reach people of that particular faith.
