A Note from Ray Comfort

Ray Comfort

We have made these DVDs affordable for you to buy and give away to your friends, family, neighborhood, outside your local high school, at your university—when you check out at a store or when you leave a generous tip at a restaurant. The graphics are designed so that you will feel comfortable giving it away.

Love can’t stay silent. May God use this film’s timely message to bring the gospel to many.

Until the nets are full,

Ray Comfort
