Evangelical Tract Distributors, Bible Tracts Inc. and Ambassadors 4 Truth offer free Bible tracts by mail to use for evangelism. While there is no charge for this literature, most publishers accept donations to cover printing costs. These organizations encourage believers to share the leaflets with non-believers. The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Evangelical Outreach and Bible Truth Publishers offer free Christian tracts for download and printing at home.
Tracts are pamphlets that religious groups often use as part of their ministries to spread their message in a small, easy-to-read format. Believers often hand out tracts to passers-by on streets or door-to-door, or they may leave them in places such as buses or waiting rooms for others to find. Often tracts are business card- or postcard-sized for easy distribution.
Some religious organizations, including Jehovah's Witnesses, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Assemblies of God and the United Pentecostal Church International print thousands of pieces of Bible literature in many different languages at their own in-house printing facilities around the world. Staff or volunteers who are church members do this printing work as a way to share their message with the public. Churches may also offer Bibles, magazines and books in addition to tracts.
