Soccer puts a new face to a century old evangelism technique.

International (MNN)–Using an evangelism technique over a century old, E3 Partners has given the ‘Wordless Book’ a new face.

In 1866, Charles Spurgeon preached a sermon entitled “The Wordless Book.” In it he told of an old, unnamed minister who had put three pages together and often looked at them to remind himself of his sinfulness (black), of Christ’s blood poured out for him (red), and the cleansing provided (white).

As time passed, the gold page was added to depict the glories of Heaven. In 1900, according to Child Evangelism Fellowship, D.L. Moody began regularly using it in meetings. And in 1939, the green page was added to depict Christian growth.

Given the rich history of the “Wordless Book”, E3 Partners just released the EvangeBall, a soccer ball bearing the colors of the wordless book.

Teams can open doors to the message by using the ball to gather a group, play a soccer game, and use the colors to share about Jesus.

After the demonstration is over, the team leaves the ball in the community, along with a pump, needle and tracts explaining the Gospel message.
