THE FIRST CHICK TRACT IS BORN
He felt convicted when he saw a group of teens hanging out on a curb. Heavily burdened, he stopped the car. What he wanted to tell them started rolling through his head and in just a few minutes he sat and wrote his first soul-winning tract, A Demon's Nightmare. There, the VISION for Chick Publications was born: Share with as many people as possible the wonderful good news that Jesus saves from sin. God had all the factors in a row: Jack's love for drawing cartoons, his dramatic feel for a good story, his gratitude for his own delivery from sin, his growing knowledge of the Bible, a good business environment, and efficient printing technology. 50 years later, frontline soul winners, who shared that vision, have seeded planet earth with hundreds of millions of copies of the no-nonsense Chick gospel tracts. Chick Publications has received testimonies from all over the world. Suicides were stopped in time. Rebel fathers returned to their families. The aimless became dedicated pastors. Bitter, angry prisoners were broken by love. The list is endless.

He was now calling as a pastor and wanted to thank someone for rescuing him from certain death ---and hell.

They are continuing to supply the same gospel by the same method that has led so many to Jesus. Christians who use them today repeatedly confirm that they still work because:
