The gospel speaks

Christ Hobbs (of Saint John's Church, Newlands, Hull) tells the following story:

One of my favourite stories is from South Africa. A Christian student was in his room, practising the outline of the Christian message which he was learning. He was reciting aloud some verses from the Bible, together with an explanation of those verses. Suddenly, from the other side of the room, came the voice of his room mate. It seems there was some kind of partition dividing the room. He thought he'd been all alone, when in fact every word had been overheard. The voice said, "Is that all true, what you've just been saying?" "Yes, it is." "Then I think I'd better become a Christian."
