Sharing the Metanarrative of the Gospel

Yesterday's post dealt with how to share your faith, which I have come to realize that many people do not know how to do. One of the best tools that I have ever come across in helping people share their faith is a booklet (not a tract) called the Story. It allows people to share their faith by connecting their story with the larger story of the gospel.

I really like that the "The Story," doesn't just cover one aspect of the gospel, but it covers the entire metanarrative: creation, fall, redemption, restoration. This allows people to see the fullness of the gospel for themselves through this tool, which then helps them when in conversation with others. It may seem simple to some, but that is what the church needs in a gospel tool. A tool that is rich with the gospel truth, but simple enough that anyone anywhere can understand it, grasp it, and in turn multiply the amount of people hearing the Gospel.
