Jesus gave you the gift of
eternal life as an Easter Present
Giving Easter Presents* to friends
is a good way to thank Jesus
*Or as birthday, graduation, or anniversary presents
As a staff member of Campus Crusade for Christ, and as the pastor of Grace Bible Church in College Station, Texas, author Bob Prall presented the Gospel and verifying evidence to hundreds of skeptical college students. As he interacted with students, Bob developed presentations of the Gospel and compelling Christian evidences that are irrefutable when honestly considered.
In Romans 1:1-4, the Apostle Paul introduces three topics. Bob calls them The Road Map for Evangelism: .1. The Gospel. .2. Messianic prophecies. .3. The Resurrection of Jesus Christ. The last two are the verifying evidences for the Gospel that Bob found effective when he shared the Gospel with skeptics. Bob, now presents the Gospel and Christian evidences in a three chapter eBook, You Can Have a Great Date with God – He has Spoken – His Tomb is Empty.
Digitally it is small, and if you give it as a gift to friends and loved ones, they can keep it for many years in their digital bookshelf for future review on their PC, Tablet, or Smart Phone.

If your gift is for a student, you should consider Word Dynamics. It's an eBook that has chapters that work like flash cards for memorizing 500 roots, prefixes, and suffixes (most are Latin vocabulary building blocks). Since Word Dynamics includes all three chapters from You Can Have a Great Date with God – He has Spoken – His Tomb is Empty, it is also a lure to catch readers for Jesus. So when you give it to a student, you are a fisher of men. (The end of some vocabulary chapters have prompts and links a student can click to read one of the extra chapters).

If your gift is for a new believer, please consider giving him or her The Master Plot of the Bible. After graduating from seminary, Bob remembered how he needed to get a handle on the big picture in the Bible when he enrolled in a theological seminary – just six months after he trusted in Jesus as his Savior. So he developed a series of Bible studies that he has taught over forty times in weekly meetings for student groups on campuses, weekend retreats, as a series of messages when he was a pastor, and later as a series of home Bible studies. After teaching the content at least forty times over thirty years, the positive responses finally convinced Bob that he should put it in a book.
Read the last four paragraphs from the first chapter (below) and you will want to give it. At only $3.77, Amazon will deliver this eBook digitally and include your personal note. That's less than the cost to purchase and send a greeting card by snail-mail. And when you purchase gifts from Amazon for your friends and associates, you should give this one to yourself.
Amazon will include a personal note with each gift.
While this web page focuses on Easter Presents, you can give eBooks as birthday, anniversary, or graduation gifts any time of the year. They are also good thank you gifts for any reason, and Amazon will include whatever you want to say in the personal note.
The Master Plot of the Bible
When new adult believers read this eBook, it will jump-start their Bible knowledge, encourage them to dig deeper, and help them feel more at home in a church with many long-time believers. If your church gives it as a gift to new members, it might help prevent the BAD syndrome -- Baptized And Dropped-out.
The last four paragraphs from Chapter #1:
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 Revelations
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.
As You are Going... Make Disciples
After finishing The Master Plot of the Bible, friends asked Bob 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 another thirty-year book, and titled it, As You Are Going... Make Disciples (a literal translation of the Great Commission in Matthew 20:28). This $3.00 eBook uses true stories -- many from Bob's meetings with students in college coffee shops. Each story was selected to teach something that will be helpful in personal evangelism.
When Jesus was challenged in the wilderness, He responded with Scripture. The eBook version has chapters that function like flash cards to help believers memorize 130 Bible verses that focus on the person and work of Jesus Christ.
Every believer should have As You Are Going... Make Disciples in their PC, Tablet and Smart Phone’s bookshelf, and memorize these verses so they can use them like Jesus did. This eBook is good supplemental reading and memory preparation for participants in a church’s evangelism training.
Endorsements from the back cover:
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.
