Gospel Tracts


I have written and illustrated Gospel tracts for years. If you have children that on Halloween night have brought back a cartoon tract or two, more than likely it was either mine or Ron Wheeler's. Most are out of print at The American Tract Society. Good News/Crossway still prints some of mine...but, as of late, their cartoon tract sales are down. Do me a favor and send up a prayer for my free-lance business (now is better than later). You can view the full text and cartoon pages of my tracts for Crossway here:
Click here to view a few tracts...you'll have to search by author.

  1. You tell us to look at your tracts at Crossway, but we will have to search by name. It would help if you gave us your name...

    1. Sorry, it's Eddie Eddings. And Crossway doesn't carry as many cartoon tracts as they used to. They used to have ten of mine (I think) and now it looks like they are down to two.
      ATS has done the same. It's easier and less expensive to do tracts based on movies with only one fold. (Cover and three pages of text.)

  2. I'd just like to pass on another way to help spread the gospel and it's simply this:-

    Include a link to an online gospel tract (e.g. www.freecartoontract.com/animation) as part of your email signature.

    An email signature is a piece of customizable HTML or text that most email applications will allow you to add to all your outgoing emails. For example, it commonly contains name and contact details - but it could also (of course) contain a link to a gospel tract.

    For example, it might say something like, "p.s. you might like this gospel cartoon ..." or "p.s. have you seen this?".

  3. I was disappointed to not find your tracts at Crossway (or ATS, which seems to have merged with Crossway as far as tract publishing is concerned). Are they available anywhere else? Hope so! Thanks.

  4. No. Most of the cartoon tracts have been replaced by "movie title" tracts.

  5. I'd just like to pass on another way to help spread the gospel and it's simply this:-

    See if a newspaper will publish a gospel tract (e.g. www.freecartoontract.com/are-you-a-good-person-english). Maybe pay for an advertisement in the newspaper - but submit a gospel tract to them instead - hopefully they'll publish it as if it were an advertisement?

  6. I am curious whether you could post pictures of your tracts online for people to print off on their own? I have an old copy of some of your joke book ones that I would love to pass out again, but can't get them anymore. Thanks for your ministry!

  7. The copyrights to all of my tracts belong to American Tract Society and Crossway Books...maybe I'll come up with a new one just for CC readers someday.
