‘Duck Dynasty’ Star Willie Robertson Encourages Christians to Spread the Gospel

William Robertson of the reality Television series “Duck Dynasty” is gearing up to release a new book “Gospeler: Turning Darkness into Light One Conversation at a Time,” encouraging Christians to share their faith.

“[I] felt like God had a message right now … and that’s always been on my heart,” Robertson told CBN News concerning why he wrote the book. “And, obviously, that was impacted by my father [Phil Robertson] sharing his faith a lot.”

Most recently, Phil Roberson’s journey from alcoholism to Christ was told in the drama-based film “The Blind.” Overall, the Roberton’s family story of faith has been told in books. Robertson said his father’s conversion to Christianity decades ago forever changed the trajectory of his family, positing what would have happened had it never unfolded, Faithwire reported.

“Had that not happened — had mom and dad not found their faith — I would have grown up a completely different person,” he said. “I don’t even know that I would have faith.”

“There would have been no company Duck Commander, there would have been no ‘Duck Dynasty,” he added.

Robertson noted that one person witnessing the gospel to his father changed the trajectory of his family, who in turn are now sharing the message of faith themselves through entertainment, books, movies, and so forth.

“One couple in Arkansas … found their faith, kept their family together, ended up 50 years later, in some way, spreading the Gospel message, whether through the prayer at the end of the show, the movie, the podcast,” Robertson said, noting that the next generation of his family, such as his daughter, Sadie and others, share their faith through various outlets.

“It’s pretty amazing, if you think about it. It just lets me know … you never know what God has in store.”

He added that evangelizing to others is exercising love to them.

“You can’t care about just about yourself, because you’re having to think about someone else,” he said. “You’ll naturally be perhaps hospitable because you invite people around you in your circle, in your community, because you want to share with them. You will study the word of God, because people ask you questions and you don’t want to have to call or get ahold of some pastor at 8 o’clock at night on a Friday night.”
