LITITZ, Penn., May 11 /Christian Newswire/ -- Kathy Jo shares food, clothing and the Word of God with Native Americans from Montana to Texas. Dan M. reaches out with God's Word to cowboys across Oklahoma, especially those "who won't go into a building with a cross on top." Nicki B. attends a church located on a reservation and loves sharing the Word of God with the people of the western Washington coastal tribes. All three share a love of horses and a passion for reaching others with the Word of God. They also share a common purpose as members of The Pocket Testament League, an evangelism ministry launched in 1893 as the vision of a teenage girl. The League publishes free Gospels of John that its 174,000 members can give away as special gifts. The newest Gospel cover, a design featuring horses running free, has just been released to coincide with rodeo fever taking hold across the nation.
The new cover design brings to 24 the total number of free Gospel cover choices currently available. Each one features a spectacular image that catches the attention of the person receiving it. Covers are created as wrap-around pictures so that even if the Gospel is handed to someone upside down, the impact is just as strong. A special laminate film coating adds a nice finish and keeps the booklets looking crisp until they can be given away. Each book includes a Plan of Salvation. Gospels are available in NIV, NLT, KJV or ESV English translations, as well as Spanish and Chinese.
The new cover image was shot by photographer Alan Zenuk, who placed himself directly in the path of a herd of running horses to get the dramatic shot he was after. The headline is ''Let God Set You Free,'' a reference to John 8:32.
The Pocket Testament League, funded entirely through donations, is dedicated to motivating Christians to read, carry and share the Word of God. Membership is free. Members can order 30 Gospels of John at no cost each month. League members are encouraged to put a Gospel in their pocket each morning and give it away before the end of the day. Members have given away more than 100 million Gospels throughout the ministry's history.
