A Bible Belt diatribe by a (then) famous evangelist against the sin-inspiring worldliness of plays, dancing, and card-playing, from one of the most prominent of American Christian publishers. "The ignorant mother, the innocent girl, the worldly Sunday-school superintendent, the private dancing lessons, the careless church members, the select home dance, the church charity ball, the vile dancing-teacher, the house of prostitution, were all guilty together,—who shall say which will be the most culpable before God at the judgment!"

Price: $30.00
