Chick Tracts Help Children Soak Up the Gospel
According to a study done by Barna Research, Christian parents are spending "little, if any time," discussing religion with their children. This leads to the coming generation getting religious understanding largely through "osmosis" from their surroundings.
The study found that 51 percent of teens believe that all people will experience the same outcome after death, regardless of their spiritual beliefs. One third have an idea of god which does not resemble the God of the Bible.
In the hustle of modern life, Christian parents have good intentions but so little time. However, for years parents have told of their use and appreciation of Chick literature in grounding their children in basic Bible understanding. Many letters come to Chick Publications describing how the literature was "just left laying around" for them and their friends to read when they were kids.
Here are a few of the many letters received:
I don't remember when I saw my first Chick tract. I don't even remember which tract it was because I was too young to be able to "read" it. However, at the age of three and four, I was able to comprehend what the tract was trying to relay just by the pictures. As I got older I know that the Chick tracts and Crusader comics were a powerful influence on my life. Thinking back now, it was reading the tracts that filled me with the understanding of the love God really has for me. Often, when I'd feel alone, I would remember this love I'd read about in the tracts and consequently turn to God for comfort and friendship. Also, as I got into junior high and high school I often used the messages in the tracts to witness to my friends.
