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.
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.
This book 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 neighbors.
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 >>

This little booklet serves as a thorough narrative of the Gospel message leading the reader from creation to Christ. It is important to have a sound resource that does not take up a lot of room, does not take up a lot of time, and can be left on the shelf at Walmart or simply handed to a neighbor across the street. While the long form books are ideal in bringing a thorough understanding of the need for a Savior, not every situation allows for the time that those books take. This is where "The Story That Matters" fills the gap without diluting the message.

It is easy to read and to understand. We buy them in bulk and give them as a gift to guest at church. People leave with a clear presentation of the gospel normally given by our pastor and then they have it written form. The pictures help communicate the truth in the narrative. Its great for people that might not be into reading a larger book. The quality for the price is top notch. Its an easy way to share the gospel with accuracy and clarity.

This is a smaller size that the Christmas and Easter booklet. So it is easier to carry in a purse or backpack. The title does not give the impression that it is a seasonal book. I miss the lovely artwork of the C&E booklet, but the line drawings make it easier for all races to identify with.
