Jesus gave you the gift of eternal life as
an Easter Present. Giving Easter Presents*
to friends is a good way to thank Jesus.
You should give Easter Presents when you are concerned for the ultimate resurrection of a friend or loved one. You can give them any season -- for any reason.
The original plan for this web page was to offer the three chapter eBook, You Can Have a Great Date with God – He has Spoken – His Tomb is Empty for only one dollar, so it could be given as evangelistic gifts at minimal cost. But most givers want to review it before giving it, so the price was raised to $3.00 so it qualifies for Amazon Prime Members to borrow and evaluate it at no cost. At only $3.00, it still costs less than a nice greeting card.
Most of chapter one in You Can Have a Great Date with God – He has Spoken – His Tomb is Empty is also in www.datewithgod.com where it can be read and evaluated by anyone at no cost. You can also include that web page as an evangelistic link in any e-mail.
Amazon will send any of the $3.00 eBooks mentioned in that web page with your personal note attached. When you have Amazon send a gift eBook, it will remain permanently in the recipients Kindle bookshelf.
Chapter one of You Can Have a Great Date with God – He has Spoken – His Tomb is Empty explains the Gospel. Chapter two presents compelling prophecies that identify Jesus Christ as the Messiah, and chapter three has rock solid evidences that verify His resurrection. These are the topics the Apostle Paul introduced in Romans 1:1-4. So author Bob Prall calls them, The Romans Road Map for Evangelism:
The Resurrection of Jesus Christ
The second and third chapters are the verifying evidences for the Gospel that Bob found effective when he shared the Gospel with skeptics as a staff member of Campus Crusade for Christ, and as the pastor of Grace Bible Church in College Station, Texas.
This three chapter eBook is titled, You Can Have a Great Date with God – He has Spoken – His Tomb is Empty. Digitally this eBook is small, so your friends and loved ones can keep it for many years in their Kindle bookshelf for future review. They can read it on their PC, Tablet, or Phone.

The last four paragraphs from Chapter #1
explain the title of this book:
A common response to the title of this book is, “What do you mean by the Plot of the Bible?” Webster has several definitions for the word plot, including “the plan or main story of a literary work” and “a secret plan for accomplishing an (often evil or unlawful) end.” As we proceed through the Bible, we will see its plot is not secret, evil, or unlawful, but is more than just “the main plan or story of a literary work.” The Bible’s plot definitely includes the concept of: “an intelligently planned course of action designed to accomplish an end or purpose.”
While the human authors of the Bible were unaware that their writings were going to become a part of a larger book with a central plot, God chose to progressively reveal His plan through the writings of men whom He selected and inspired. The result is a “Book of Books” written by many men from several centuries. This book of many books has an amazing unity, and one central plot that begins in Genesis, and flows through the Bible to the book of the Revelation.
To prepare you for the rest of this book, the foundation for the Bible’s plot rests on certain covenants and prophetic promises that God made in the Old Testament, which provide the basis for His action on our behalf -- actions recorded in the New Testament. Understanding these promises, and God’s work to fulfill them, helps us understand the Bible’s plot. When the plot is understood, the individual parts of the Bible, that rest on the primary message, become much more meaningful.
Like the opening of a rose bud, the Bible’s plot unfolds gradually. When the full bloom is viewed, it is a magnificent creation. It is because of this gradual development, within a very long book, that the plot is often missed by many believers. In this book, we will skip over much of the material that rests on the main plot, not because it is unimportant, but to help you, the reader, grasp the main flow of biblical truth. Then you will be prepared to joyfully appreciate the many “buds” that spring off of the “main stem.” Please be patient as we begin -- the flower will gradually reach full bloom.

It's the book recommended for BAPTISM PRESENTS.
As You are Going... Make Disciples

After finishing The Master Plot of the Bible, friends asked Bob Prall if he was going to write another book. At first he responded, “It took me thirty years to write my first book, and I don’t think I have another thirty years.” But Bob did come up with a second thirty-year book, and titled it, As You Are Going... Make Disciples (a literal translation of the Great Commission in Matthew 20:28). .This book uses true stories to teach and encourage personal evangelism. Some are from Bob's personal witnessing in college coffee shops. While they entertain, each story was selected to teach something that may help you when sharing your faith in Jesus Christ.
It can help you recall scripture when witnessing
When Jesus was challenged in the wilderness, He responded with Scripture. The eBook version has chapters that function like flash cards to help you memorize 130 Bible verses that focus on the person and work of Jesus Christ. You probably have some of the verses memorized from reading them over an over again in the Bible, but can't always recall their locations. This memory exercise will give you instant recall when you want to use a verse in its context, either person to person, or when preaching, teaching, or speaking.
This eBook is good supplemental reading, and memorizing the verses is good preparation, for your church’s evangelism training.
Endorsements from some Christian leaders:
Bob Prall attacks the problem of disciple making. His book, As You are Going... Make Disciples will motivate believers to think strategically in their personal evangelism. Bob understands that the Gospel is the main priority, and skillfully uses apologetics to enforce the message of the Gospel. This book will motivate people to action -- using stories to communicate that evangelism can be an exciting and rewarding adventure.
Dr. Charles Stanley -- Senior Pastor, First Baptist Church, Atlanta, Georgia
The day of the parable, which Jesus used so skillfully to communicate the most profound truth, is not over. The anecdotal, narrative method can be one of the most effective means of witnessing, as Bob Prall demonstrates in this intriguing book. Here is a practical, yet entertaining approach, a guideBook on how to win souls for Jesus Christ, from a soldier of the cross who knows what it is to be on the firing line.
D. James Kennedy, Ph.D. -- Senior Minister, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church
Bob Prall has set out for his reader several very practical and relevant methods for communicating the good news of Jesus Christ. Drawing from his reservoir of his own life, he makes sharing Jesus an imperative responsibility for every believer at every time. As You are Going... Make Disciples is not a textbook for how to witness; it is a mandate. It is my hope that every believer who reads this mandate becomes fired with the excitement to share the wonderful truth of Christ.
Mark O. Hatfield -- United States Senator from Oregon, Retired
I first met Bob Prall in 1962 when he was one of my students at Western Seminary, and I should add, the reigning Oregon State Amateur Golf Champion. Bob had accepted Christ about three years after graduating from the University of Oregon. Recognizing his need for preparation in the Word of God, he enrolled in seminary just six months after he became a believer. I remember Bob as an enthusiastic new Christian with a burning heart for evangelism. After graduating from Western Seminary, he joined the staff of Campus Crusade for Christ. As a speaker at some of their conferences, I followed Bob’s ministry for many years when he ministered on campuses across America. Later, as a visiting speaker, I observed first hand his ministry as pastor of Grace Bible Church in College Station, Texas. During his pastorate the church grew from just 30 members to a church with a dynamic outreach to professors and students in that university community. God gave Bob a heart for evangelism that continues to burn, and it is my prayer that many believers will read his book, As You are Going... Make Disciples, and catch his vision and zeal for sharing the Gospel.
Earl D. Radmacher, ThD, President Emeritus, Western Seminary
Bob Prall’s book, As You are Going... Make Disciples, is one of those books followers of Christ need in their arsenal. High school kids who desire to share the good news with their friends will find this fun and easy to read book helpful and motivating. The real life stories of people making a difference during their everyday journey of faith will fire you up to join the battle.
John Wayland -- Regional Director, Young Life.
If you learn by listening
Much of the content in Bob's books is also in audio mp3 albums. The albums are titled: How to Share Your Faith, .Understanding Bible Prophecy, .The Resurrection – His and Yours, .and Yes but FAQ's. The last title is for answers for questions often asked by skeptics. You can purchase the set of four for only $8.97. Each album is a little over an hour long. They are good gifts for young believers. While the How to Share Your Faith album speaks to believers, the other three are also good gifts for skeptics. You can purchase the three as a set for $7.97 from CDBaby, but they do not include personal notes, so you should also send an e-mail to the recipient if you give it as a gift.

When Bob graduated from Western Seminary in Portland, in 1964, he began his ministry on the staff of Campus Crusade for Christ (now CRU). During his eight years on the Campus Crusade staff, The Jesus People Movement erupted in California, multiplied, and migrated all over America. In 1972, Bob left the Campus Crusade staff when he was called to be the pastor of Grace Bible Church, then a small church in Bryan, Texas. During his pastorate Bob lead in moving the church to twin-city College Station -- where it has been greatly blessed.
Late in his life, Bob is now an Evangelism Encourager, and he wants America to have a Second Jesus People Movement before he goes to be with his Savior. A web page with more info about his evangelism strategies is at:
