The Parody of the Christ is a tract exposing Mel Gibson's movie The Passion of the Christ. When printed, cut, and assembled, it is in the form of a small twelve-page (plus cover) booklet. If you'd like to read the text of the tract, please see here.
The assembly of the Parody tract is fairly simple. This tract is very similar in form to our Harry Potter tract, with the exception that the Parody has an extra sheet which forms its cover. Page #1 of the tract's PDF file contains three cover "pages." Therefore, the main idea is to print three tract bodies (PDF file pages 2 & 3) to every one tract cover sheet (PDF file page #1). We apologize if this sounds confusing; the best way to figure this out is probably to look at the PDF file itself, which can be downloaded below. We hope to provide clearer instructions in the near future. The concept is quite easy once you get the hang of it.
The basic steps to create one are as follows:
1) Download the PDF file.
2) Print out three copies of pages 2 and 3 (page #2 on the front of a sheet of paper, page #3 on the back).
3) Print out one copy of page 1, preferably on colored (yellow) paper.
4) Cut the pages into three strips each (along the dotted cutting lines).
5) Stack the pages in order (you should end up with three tracts total).
6) Staple and fold.
More detailed instructions can be found below, along with some suggestions for adding "professional" finishing touches to increase the tracts' appeal.
