When I became a Christian, all I needed to know was in a little booklet called Journey into Life, by Norman Warren. It clearly and simply explained the gospel and how to respond to it. And I did. Many thousands of people became Christians through that booklet.
Then there was his follow-up booklet, called The Way Ahead. It covered why and how to pray, why and how to read the bible, how to deal with temptation – so simply and clearly.
It’s not hard to find booklets like Journey into Life. Our welcome desk at church has several, in a number of languages.
But what do you give someone who has just become a Christian? Where is the equivalent of The Way Ahead?
That’s why I’ve written From Now On – first steps for new Christians. It’s a brief giveaway booklet which costs pennies not pounds, and it covers the basics of living as Christian from one of the early sermons in Acts.
It’s being published by the Good Book Company in the UK and the US, and it’s available from June 1.
