God’s Word in Unlikely Places at Unusual Times

When Lisa came across the saying, “What can a man give in exchange for his soul?” she liked it so much she had it tattooed on her leg. She didn’t really understand the full meaning of the saying, but something about it connected with her.

Later, when life seemed to have bottomed out, Lisa’s mother gave her a pretty wall hanging that read, “Faith is the substance of things hoped for…” The hanging travelled with her from home to home as she endured very difficult times and was a comfort to her, though she didn’t know where the little bit of poetry came from.

More recently, Lisa has come to place her faith in what Christ did for her on the cross. Through reading the book The Stranger on the Road to Emmaus with a friend, she has developed strong foundations in God’s Word. She’s continued to build on those foundations as she and her friend study The Captive and the King’s Will, a sequel which teaches the “next steps” after a person has understood and believed the content explained in GoodSeed’s evangelism books.

When Lisa and her friend came across Hebrews 11:1 in The Captive, Lisa ran to her room and grabbed the wall-hanging off her wall. She was so excited to not only realize that the precious saying was from the Bible, but now she understood its context and fuller meaning for her.

Later in the book, the women were studying Matthew 16:24-27 and read the phrase Lisa had tattooed on her leg. Words that had struck a chord earlier now took on new depths of meaning for Lisa. She was completely amazed! Her friend pointed out that now she could use that tattoo as a great lead-in when talking with others about the Bible’s good news.

Even seeing John 3:16 written on the cheek of a football player on TV thrilled Lisa, causing her to find the now-precious verse in her Bible, just for the joy of seeing it there in print.

Her friend summed it up with: “Oh the thrill of seeing God at work even years before [Lisa] knew the Saviour and her joy in recognizing God’s Word in unlikely places at unusual times!”

The Captive and the King’s Will

Last month we marked a major milestone–our new book was sent to the printers!

The Captive and the King’s Will is a follow-up book to our evangelism books.

For years, people have been reading these books and asking “What’s next?” We trust this book will answer many of those questions.

While our other books are dedicated to salvation – explaining the Gospel and justification – this new book focuses on sanctification and the Christian life.

We see the Lord preparing the way, as two donors have already paid for the initial print run of the book. Read more and pre-order at: www.goodseed.com/the-captive-and-the-kings-will.html

“I have read your book “All that the Prophets have Spoken and I love it! I was wondering if there were any more…”

The above was part of a letter received from a woman in Ohio. Her letter reflects a question we have received often over the years.

“Your book changed my life! But what’s the next step?”

“I led a “Stranger on the Road to Emmaus” study with a couple ladies and they became Christians. What do I teach them now?”

“I’m discipling a young man who became saved through reading “By This Name,” but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have a follow-up book?”

Now we can say, “YES!”

After many years of field-testing and reworking and more testing and polishing, we are happy to announce that “The Captive and the King’s Will” is on its way! You can pre-order* your copy now on our webstore. http://ca.goodseed.com/the-captive-and-the-kings-will-english/

This book is geared toward those who have read one of our main evangelistic books (The Stranger on the Road to Emmaus, By This Name or All that the Prophets have Spoken). No assumptions are made of any other exposure to Christianity.

Following the life of Simon Peter, The Captive and the King’s Will guides the new believer into the next steps of what it means to follow Christ. Assuming the reader has little or no previous exposure to church or Christianity, The Captive endeavours to touch on key sanctificational truths, grounding believers in their new-found faith as they pursue a walk with the Lord.
