Is John's Gospel the Best Book to Give a Non-Christian?

Is John's Gospel the Best Book to Give a Non-Christian? March 5, 2010

How It Works « The Light Project is a unique service for a local church. For $1 per house they will distribute free copies of John’s gospel on your behalf with the church’s contact information included on the gospel. At the moment this is a USA-only service. It looks like an interesting idea. I have often thought about which gospel may be best to hand a non-Christian. It might well be the case that one gospel or another might be better for different kinds of people.  But Moody and Torrey had some strong things to say about the primacy of John for evangelism cited on this project’s site.  Do you agree?

“My friends, if you want a reason for not loving Christ don’t turn to John. He knew Him too long. I don’t believe a man can read the gospel of John without being turned to Christ.” — D. L. Moody

“The best book in the world to put into the hands of one who desires to know about Jesus and to be saved is the gospel of John.” — R. A. Torrey
