What is Napkin Theology?

Napkin Theology provides Christian education products that promote great conversations. Because a picture can be worth a thousand words, Napkin Theology attempts to use simple images to communicate great truths.
Stanley J. Ward began Napkin Theology as a way to teach students in his Biblical Worldview classes. Stan hopes that pastors and other Christian educators will use the videos in sermons, small groups, and at camps. But above all, Napkin Theology is meant as a tool to help Christians better understand and communicate their faith, using simply a napkin and a pen.

Not all of the illustrations are Stan’s original work; some are adapted from other sources.
