WHY I SHALL CONDUCT A REVIVAL IN THIS
CITY THROUGH THE DAY BOOK
BY BILLY SUNDAY
The World's Most Noted and Suc
cessful Evangelist Today
When the editor asked me to con
duct a "real Billy Sunday revival"
in Chicago through the columns of
The Day Book I simply JUMPED at
the chance!
Why?
Because my business on earth is
to bring folks to Christ and I am try
ing to do that business in every pos
sible way. To reach every reader
of this newspaper with the gospel
means another wonderful opportu
nity for doing this, and I am hon
ored and delighted by this chance
that came my way.
Monday is the beginning of Holy
Week the most sacred in all the
Christian calendar. Our thoughts in
stinctively are turning to religion. So
"now is the appointed time" to de
cide whether YOU do not want to
"hit the sawdust trail" that leads to'
glory.
I want YOU, friend, therefore, to
read EVERY ONE of the SIX ser
mons I will preach through the col
umns of this newspaper next week
and see if YOU feel, when you have
finished with them, that you can af
ford any longer to be without Christ
as your Saviour.
These sermons I will preach are
not entirely new matter.. I have re
cast parts of them from sermons I
have been preaching from the be-
Billy Sunday
ginning, for they are my TRUEST
sermons; they represent the FLOW
ER OF MY BELIEF. I gave prayer
ful consideration to what points (of
the many thousand I have amassed
as reasons for taking up the Chris
tian life) it would be best to present
in this first concentrated "newspa
per revival." And the sermon which
will appear in this paper Monday and
the five that follow seemed to me to
have in them my STRONGEST ar
guments, my BEST.
READ THEM AND "FOLLOW
JESUS!"
