It began with the realization
that an understood
gospel is a powerful gospel.
In 1997, within weeks of the release of The Stranger on the
Road to Emmaus, requests came from all over the world:
“Can we have a German translation? Or how about
French? Do you have an audiobook version?”
To handle these requests, GoodSeed was formed.
Twenty-five years among remote tribal groups taught John Cross and his colleagues that when the Bible was presented from creation to Christ, it made profound sense. They understood and believed.
As John traveled around the globe, he realized that many of those he met were much like the tribal
people—they too knew nothing about God.
So he wrote a book using the same biblical approach that proved so effective with tribal people—one that could be given away or used to guide people to a clear understanding of the Gospel.
What does GoodSeed do?
We are an equipping ministry.
