The Most Important Story (MIS) is the single most effective Gospel presentation available today. The distribution of 92 million copies alone marks an unprecedented milestone in Christian publishing. It has been utilized by leading Christian organizations and denominations around the world. Of special note is this is the book chosen to be distributed through the Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child "shoebox program" for 15 consecutive years. It has been used by Operation Mobilization, the Billy Graham Organization, Child Evangelism Fellowship and countless others.
Very revealing is its incredible reception in 170 countries and the unparalleled response rate in Vietnam with the fastest growing denomination in the country. Exacting documentation reveals that 75% of non–believers accept Christ upon going through the Most Important Story (MIS) book. It also led directly to over 400 new Christian churches being established. Another amazing fact is that this full color, Scripture filled book is consistently a best seller at the world’s largest book fairs.
It starts with creation, reveals the sin of mankind and our separation from God, but quickly moves to God's solution in the person of His Son Jesus Christ. It teaches about the life of Jesus, his death, resurrection, and ascent to heaven.
The artwork was designed deliberately to be of no particular origin and historically accurate. It clearly explains how to become a child of God, ending with an invitation to accept Christ with a prayer of salvation and a challenge to go and do likewise.
David was born into a missionary family in Vietnam and raised seeing firsthand the deep importance of spreading the Gospel. So many of the soldiers they shared the Good News with went straight into battle facing death on a daily basis. After working with church leaders for many years, David heard a consistent theme: “We do not have attractive, solid Biblical, and evangelistic materials to share with families.” After looking the world over for such material and finding nothing that met their criteria, he was inspired to create The Most Important Story. The Most Important Story (MIS) accomplished all he desired, resulting in over 92 million copies distributed worldwide.More About David's Story
