  • Billy Sunday - 1,171 words
    Billy Sunday Billy Sunday For almost a quarter century Billy Sunday was a household name in the United States. Between 1902 when he first made the pages of the New York Times and 1935 when the paper covered his death and memorial service in detail, people who knew anything about current events had heard of the former major league baseball player who was preaching sin and salvation to large crowds all over America.

But he had hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, of loyal defenders, and they were just as loud in their praise as the criti ...

  • Christianity And Islam - 1,612 words
