Absolutely! Not only can you save by ordering in quantity (see Quantity Discounts) but we also offer a great bargain if you or your church can use 10,000 tracts of one title (see half-price offer). We ship millions of tracts every year through this money-saving program.
We are always working on new tract titles and have published over 200 titles in our 50+ year existence. So, it's not possible for us to keep every title in stock. Our focus is to keep the titles available that most Christians are requesting. The slower selling titles eventually get discontinued and are available only as a custom printing.
Our ministry is primarily publishing the gospel tracts of Jack T. Chick and David W. Daniels, but we do occasionally publish a manuscript in book form. If your manuscript educates Christians in one of the areas for which we have a tract, we would love to see it. An example: since we publish gospel tracts to win Roman Catholics to salvation by faith, it was natural for us to also accept the manuscript for the fine soul-winning tool, Answers to My Catholic Friends. Knowing that Christians need a better understanding of how Catholics might feel in order to help them, we also published Fifty Years in the Church of Rome by Charles Chiniquy. Since we publish a gospel tract on evolution, we also agreed to publish Vanishing Proofs of Evolution by Thomas Heinze. Perhaps you have a manuscript that relates to one of our tract titles. Send it to Chick Publications, PO Box 3500, Ontario, CA 91761-1019 for consideration.
If your manuscript is a collection of poetry, or deals with a subject not related to our tracts, we have been told that the following publishers accept such manuscripts:
First, check our title listing; we may already have the title you want! If you still don't see what you need, we can print one of our tracts in another language if you can provide the translation and order 10,000 copies of that title (see half-price offer). Many missionaries do this, and a number of churches order them for their missionaries. If you would like to speak with someone to get more information on this special half-price offer, call us at 909-987-0771.
God has only one Truth. If something is not the Truth, it is false, and must be revealed as such. How tragic it would be to just stand idly by and let people go to hell, without so much as a word of warning.
Many people are trusting their church or their good works to save them. It's no fun when they get angry after hearing the Gospel, yet it sometimes happens. So why do we do it? Why not just remain silent, so everyone will like us, and let those people die without ever knowing the truth as shown in the Scriptures?
Here is why: God said, "When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand." Ezekiel 3:18. It's not hard to see that God requires us to speak up, even if it is unpopular.
We live in a world where it has become "politically correct" to avoid absolutes. Many want all religions to be given the same honor, and all gods regarded as equally true and equally fictitious. But take these same people, who want fuzzy, all-inclusive thinking in spiritual matters, and put them on an airplane. You will find they insist on a very dogmatic, intolerant pilot who will stay on the "straight and narrow" glidepath so their life will not come to a violent end short of the runway. They want no fuzzy thinking there!
The world contains numerous religions, each teaching a different god. These gods are not the same, and therefore cannot all be the Creator. True Christianity is based upon the Bible, the historically verifiable record of what God did in history. When the principles of the Bible are put into effect in a man's life, that life is dramatically changed.
This same Bible contains prophecies where men claimed to speak the words of God. The historical fact that these prophecies came to pass is proof that God was, in fact, speaking through them. These prophets foretold an incredible amount of detail about the coming Messiah, and Jesus Christ fulfilled them to the letter. When Jesus Christ rose from the dead, He was seen by so many eyewitnesses, that word of His resurrection spread throughout the civilized world like wildfire. This is historical fact. No ordinary man could ever do this.
We love people of all religions. In fact, we love them enough to want to show them the joy of knowing the True Creator. We are unwilling to lie to them and say that all gods are real, when we know this is not true. We are not being intolerant, but compassionate, desiring to help them find both joy in this life, and eternal life beyond. To do anything else would be dishonest.

1. Repentance Is Not the Fruits.
Repent AND Bear Fruit: "Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham." — Luke 3:8
2. Repentance Is Not the Conversion.
Repent AND Be Converted: "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord" —Acts 3:19
3. Repentance Is Not Prayer to God.
Repent AND Pray: "Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee." —Acts 8:22
4. Repentance Is Not Faith toward Jesus.
Repent AND Believe: "Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ." —Acts 20:21
"Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God" —Hebrews 6:1
5. Repentance Is Not Doing Good Works.
Repent AND Do Good Works: "Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent." —Revelation 2:5
1. What God the Son (the Lord Jesus Christ) Said
Repent That Ye Might Believe: "For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him." —Matthew 21:32
Sinners Need to Repent: "I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance." —Luke 15:7
"But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance." —Matthew 9:13
We Must Preach Repentance among All Nations: "And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem." —Luke 24:46-47
2. What God Said through Peter
Israel Must Repent: "Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins." —Acts 5:31
3. What God Showed the Apostles and Brethren in Jerusalem
Gentiles Must Repent: "When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life." —Acts 11:18
4. What God Said through Paul
Everyone Everywhere Must Repent: "And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent" —Acts 17:30
Jews & Gentiles Must Repent AND Believe. This Is “All the Counsel of God” : "And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have shewed you, and have taught you publickly, and from house to house, Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ. … For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God." —Acts 20:20-21, 27
God’s Goodness Leads People to Repent: "Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?" —Romans 2:4
Godly Sorrow Leads People to Repent: "For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death." —2 Corinthians 7:10
Repentance AND Faith Are the Foundation: "Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God" —Hebrews 6:1
Good Works are what follow salvation: "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them." —Ephesians 2:8-10
So God ordained that those saved by grace through faith should walk in good works. Good works do not save us; but God did ordain us to walk in good works.
What Faith Is: "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." —Hebrews 11:1
"But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." —Hebrews 11:6
How can we give “all the counsel of God” (Acts 20:20-21, 27) and refuse to tell people to repent? If we don’t tell people to repent, we would be disobeying Christ, because He said that “all men everywhere” must repent (Acts 17:30). And Jesus said before He ascended into heaven that “repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations” (Luke 24:46-47).
This is not a work for salvation. No one can “boast” that his heart was changed by God. Repentance, an act on the heart, accompanies faith and is no more a work than faith itself is.
So we at Chick Publications preach “repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ” (Acts 20:21).
