CHICAGO MINISTERS PRAISE
DAY BOOK SERMON IDEA
"Great idea!" That's what Dr. Mar
tin D. Hardin said when -he heard
that The Day Book was going to
run a series of sermons by Billy Sun
day this week. Dr. Hardin is pas
tor of Third Presbyterians church,
225 S. Ashland blvd.
"There is no reason why a printed
sermon should not have as great a
mpral effect as the one delivered
from the church pulpit," said Dr. Har
din. "A sermon is effective when it
makes a man think. True, the ora
tor has the advantage of being able
to gain impression through his per
sonality, but at the same time the
printed sermon must necessarily em
body the personality of the writer.
Then the printed sermon is always
there. It can be treasured away and
it admits of no doubts or discussions
as to what was said or meant.
"It is a good idea this innovation
of The Day Book. It will make peo
ple think and it will accomplish
"It is a practical plan and will add
another feature to the many unique
attractions of your paper," said the
Rev. Wm. H. Ohan of the Eleventh
Presbyterian church, at Washtenaw
av. and Crystal st.
"I think Billy preaches a good ser
mon, but how his eloquence will
look on the printed page we will have
to read next week's issues of The .Day
Book to find out," sai dthe Rev. Chas.
F. Wishart of the Second Presbyter
ian church, Michigan av. and 20th
st. "I hope these sermons will be
widely read, for it will prepare Chi
cago for his coming."
"I am a believer in the Rev. Billy
Sunday and in Rev. Sunday's ways.
If we can't have him yet in person,
The Day Book is to thanked for
bringing him here in word and spirit,"
said Rev. J. S. Ladd Thomas, pastor
of Austin Methodist Episcopal
church, 641 N. Central av.
"In The Day Book we will not have
the Billy Sunday magnetic 'punch,
but the meat of the truths he preach
es will be there and it will be good
food for hungry Chicago souls," said
Rev. William Macafee, pastor of
First Church, Methodist, Clark ana
