Check with Doc Haley Gospel Magic. Steve Varro has some great card packet tricks that lends itself to close up. He may also have some Del Wilson books on gospel card magic. His website is http://www.gospelmagic.com

For getting the creative juices going, I think Spiritual Applications for Tarbell 1 and 2 are great resources.

Can you suggest a few effects that you thought were really good from the Spirtual Applications for Tarbell? I've glanced thru these books and was rather disappointed, but maybe that (just glancing) was my problem.

Del Wilson also wrote a small booklet: 12 Gospel Rope tricks, which I found reasonable.

The Professors Nightmare is also a good way to talk about people w/different magnitudes of sin in their life, but in God's eyes they are not so different (Jas 2:10). I've also used the Panama Rope trick(a triple cut & restore rope trick) to talk about the need for Christ blood sprinkled on us(as the 3 knot just fall of the rope)

A "Wonderland" gimmick, red on one side, white on the other; paired up with Is 1:18

CMH to talk about being trap by sin, a relinking to talk about how we tend to go back to our sin(Rm 7), and the a second unlinking to represent freedom in Christ.

Then as suggested by someone else on the Café, the best book out there for ideas is none other than the Bible itself.

I have tried to use Paul Harris' "Vacuum Cleaner Cards" effect. Three of the aces represent the 3 sins: lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh, and the pride of life. The last ace takes away the sins of the world. If you have a Jesus card that matches your deck, that would be better.

Any cut & restored rope/cord effect can be used showing a restored life in Christ.

DT for color changing silk can be used to show cleansing (red to white) by Christ.

Unlink rubber bands (Harlan & others) showing only Jesus can release us from sin.
