Welcome new member!
Let us show you around
New member overview
You've joined a movement of over 400,000 Christians who are committed to Read, Carry and Share the Word of God. Millions of pocket-sized Gospels of John have been shared in the history of this ministry, most of them through simple one-to-one encounters. We make it easy! One Gospel each day, given away, transforms your life and those of the people you reach.
As a member of the League, you can order Gospels every month. Just offer the booklet as a free gift. You'll be delighted at the response, with most people joyfully accepting your precious gift. We recommend ordering 30 per month and giving away one each day.
Remember to update your profile any time your address or E-mail address changes to avoid problems.

Free Audio Book!
You're eligible to receive a free audio book as our gift to you for joining the League. This 80-minute presentation will help encourage and motivate you to "Share Jesus Without Fear." Listen on your commute, while working out, or during a quiet time. Based on the book of the same name by Bill Fay, this presentation lays out the game plan for communicating the truth of the gospel in a non-threatening way. Mr. Fay is currently a chaplain with the Federal Drug Enforcement Agency and host of the internationally syndicated radio show "Let's Go." The late Dr. Bill Bright, founder and president of Campus Crusade for Christ said, "In my fifty-five years of witnessing for Christ, I have met few believers who were as enthusiastic and effective in their witness for our Lord as Bill Fay. He is a great blessing and inspiration to me."
To listen to the streaming version instantly, click the "Play" button in the controller bar above. You can slide the controller to any part of the program to hear any portion of the presentation.
Your free audio book is available in two formats: an mp3 file that you can listen to right on your computer or transfer to your non-iPod mp3 player, or an audiobook file complete with chapters and bookmarking -- perfect for use on your iPod or with iTunes. Please choose only one of these formats to reduce our bandwidth costs. Right-click the links below (Mac users control-click) to download any of these files. Note that these are very large files.
