Tracts are creative, short-form presentations of the gospel—convenient to use and economical to produce and distribute. Tracts have been used by Christians in one form or another since at least the 13th century and continue to aid in outreach efforts around the globe.
Crossway, originally known as Good News Publishers, was founded in 1938 through the evangelistic ministry of Clyde and Muriel Dennis, two people who cared deeply about the advance of the gospel. The Dennis family found that tracts could have a unique and strategic role to play in the work of evangelism, printing over 50 million tracts during World War II alone.
Crossway continues to distribute more than 23 million tracts annually to ministries and individuals actively sharing the gospel.
