Fresh out of the U.S. Army in 1948, a young, chain-smoking, hard-swearing cartoonist named Jack Chick became a Christian after hearing a Gospel radio message on his honeymoon. Now, he wanted to tell the world about it, but how? He knew he could not tell everyone personally. He felt convicted when he saw a group of teens hanging out on a curb. Heavily burdened, he stopped the car. What he wanted to tell them started rolling through his head and in just a few minutes he sat and wrote his first soul-winning tract, A Demon's Nightmare.
