Dogs can do remarkable things!

One breed in particular, the St. Bernard, is known for saving lives. In the rugged, snow-covered mountains of the Alps, St. Bernards were ideal for rescue work because they could clear paths, predict incoming avalanches, and detect injured people buried beneath the snow.

Before they were replaced by more modern rescue teams, the dogs would be sent out in pairs to dig through the snow and find buried travelers. One dog would lie on top of the rescued person to provide warmth while the second dog would return to get help. Over a span of nearly 200 years, about 2,000 people—from lost children to Napoleon’s soldiers—were rescued by these heroic dogs. Unfortunately, it wasn’t uncommon for a St. Bernard to lose its own life while saving someone in need.

Perhaps the most famous St. Bernard was Barry. During the course of his career, this faithful rescuer is believed to have saved more than 40 people from an icy death. Time after time, Barry willingly risked his life to help someone in need. His deeds stand as a monument to the selfless nature of these St. Bernards.

Barry’s story of selfless devotion is a reminder of the One who selflessly gave His life for all of mankind. You and I may never find ourselves lost in the Alps or caught up in an avalanche, but we all face an even greater danger. We are lost in our sin and separated from God. The Bible tells us: “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way” (Isaiah 53:6). Our disobedience puts us in danger of being swept away from His presence forever, enduring judgment for our sins in a place called Hell (Romans 6:23; Hebrews 9:27).

How can we be rescued?

God loves us, and does not want us to be separated from Him. “The Lord is … not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9). But because He is holy, God has to deal with the problem of sin before we can be brought back into a relationship with Him. So He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to be our Savior.

Because Jesus had no sin of His own, He could stand in our place before God, bearing the punishment our sin deserves. When Jesus died on the cross and rose again, He paid sin’s penalty and broke its power. “Christ died for our sins … was buried, and … rose again the third day” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4).

Are you ready to be rescued?

Jesus said His purpose was “to seek and to save that which was lost” (Luke 19:10). He has done all of the work to rescue you from sin, and is offering you forgiveness and eternal life. Will you receive this incredible gift by turning to God and putting your trust in Jesus Christ today?

“By grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9).

“If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved” (Romans 10:9).

We Also Recommend

We can add your custom imprint to individual titles of Gospel Tracts, as well as our Calendar Cards. Please note that Tract Assortments, Poems, Mini Tracts, booklets, and some Believers Tracts cannot be imprinted.

How Much Does Tract Imprinting Cost? The imprinting charge is $4 per pack for tracts. There are no setup fees or minimum or maximum quantity limits, so when you order an imprinted item, feel free to order as few or as many copies as you want.

How Much Does Calendar Card Imprinting Cost? To order imprinted calendar cards, locate the special Personalized item in the Calendar Cards category. The imprinting charges are already built into this item; there are no other extra charges or fees.

How Long Will It Take to Get My Imprinted Items? Tract imprints of about 3,000 copies or less (per title) only require 2-3 business days for printing. Tract imprints of 3,000 or more copies (per title) usually require 2-3 weeks for printing. Imprinted calendar cards are usually shipped in about 1 week.

Where Does My Imprint Go? Every tract has a reserved space on the back (approximately 1" tall x 3" wide) for imprinting (see picture at right). The calendar card has a reserved space on the calendar side (beside the year). Your imprint will go in this space.

How Much Text Can My Imprint Include? There is room for up to 5 lines of text on Gospel Tracts (4 lines on calendar cards), with approximately 40 characters per line. Adding more text would require the text to be so small that we don't recommend it.

Can I Add A Logo or Image? Yes, you can upload your own custom logo or image. Remember that adding an image to your imprint reduces the amount of room available for text, and you should limit your text accordingly. 

How Do I Order Imprinted Tracts? When ordering a tract, select the "Add Imprinting" option and fill in the fields that appear. A live preview will be generated so you can see what your imprint will look like. Please note that due to differences in devices and browsers, your finished tracts may not look exactly like the preview. All imprints are reviewed by our designers for content and style before printing.

Do I Have to Enter My Imprint Over and Over? Nope. If you are ordering multiple tracts with the same imprint, you can enter all of the details with the first tract, and then enter "same" on Line 1 for the others. Likewise, if you have ordered imprinted tracts in the past and want to use the same information, simply enter "same as before." All orders are carefully reviewed, and we will link everything together for you.
