Video 10 – Billy Sunday & His Secret Weapon

Hello again! Continuing with my academic break from my writing career, here is the next in the series of videos I have produced in my classes. This video was the final research project from my class about Christianity in America. 

Billy Sunday was an evangelist in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He was a professional baseball player when he gave his heart to Christ. Billy Sunday was a staunch advocate of Prohibition and manliness. He was known for the physical quality of his sermons and frequently employed athletic stunts. He preached over twenty thousand sermons to millions of people across America and was credited with over a quarter of a million converts to Christ. His moderate success burgeoned in 1908, raising his evangelism to a legendary status due to his wife Nell Sunday’s taking on the duties of managing the business and personnel aspects of his ministry. This, however; came at a high price to the Sunday family.
