The Gospel In Colors – The Wordless Book

Print Friendly and PDF

One of the best ways to share the Gospel with kids is the wordless book. It’s a series of colors that can be used to explain the Gospel.
I was surprised to learn that many believe that Charles Spurgeon originated the wordless book idea. Later is was used by several early Evangelical Missionaries. You can find a good summary of it on Kidology and read about it’s history on Wikipedia.

  1. Hi,

    I regularly use your lessons for Children’s Church. Thank you for your ministry.
    I have used a version of the Wordless Book for years in evangelism. I usually use the colors to make a necklace or bracelet with a cross in the middle and the colors on each side. I tell them the story, and then encourage them to bring their friends back to the table. When they return, I ask them to tell the story to their friends using the colors. I even have many adults come to the table and want to make a “Salvation Necklace/Bracelet.” On subsequent years/outreaches, I have children and adults still wearing their “Salvation Necklaces/Bracelets.” The necklace/bracelet is a more permanent reminder of the story of salvation.
