What people think: 

“One of the guys I talked to was an exchange student from Paris. He grew up with a nominal education of Christianity, but had decided that God does not exist.  I was able to share my faith story with him. After that, I asked him if God did exist and it was possible to know Him, would he want to?  He said absolutely and I was able to give him one of the skeptic's prayer cards and challenge him to ask God to reveal Himself.  He said he was willing to do it. I really left that conversation a lot more encouraged than most conversations I have had with people professing to be atheists.” -Kris Hodges, Kennesaw State

 “The two guys I shared it with were new believers. They said it helped them understand what they believe and how clearly the Bible addresses things.  It could be a good tool not only for evangelism, but also for discipleship of new believers.” -Shane, Texas A&M University

“Jess, a student leader, and I went to our student center to try out Perspective.  It became clear really quickly that the two girls we shared with were Christians and one had even attended our meeting the night before.  As we continued the conversation we had a chance to hear their beliefs and they had the chance to see that sharing the gospel could be interactive and fun.  The night before we went sharing we were challenged at our weekly meeting to share our testimonies with 5 people in the next 2 weeks. By using Perspective it led Jess into an opportunity to share her story with the girls. As we walked away Jess was really glad she got to help me try out Perspective and wants one of her own.  I'm grateful for any tool that helps my students feel equipped and excited to share their faith.” -Londa, UW Eau Claire

 “I was able to share with a Christian who was really unsure about which cards were correct and, because of his poor theology, was able to share with him more accurately what a Christian believes. He was really thankful and grasped more fully what it meant to be accepted and forgiven by Christ.” -Blake, Purdue
