I love people and enjoy personal conversations about Jesus. Over time businessmen began bringing their friends to our lunch meetings. Most knew nothing about Jesus, so I began to draw the gospel on napkins and butcher paper.
Few could grasp the idea of Jesus being Lord until I drew a circle and placed Jesus in the middle and asked, ” Is Jesus the center of your life?” To my surprise, many men took those diagrams home.
By drawing diagrams on restaurant napkins the first version of Jesus at the Center was born. One of those men, before going to heaven, asked me to codify and write these thoughts down so others can enjoy them. I present to you a simple gospel handbook that you will love.
