Publisher's Description

This is a print on demand book and is therefore non- returnable.

The greatest of the tent and tabernacle revivalists, preaching to over 100 million people from 1908 to 1920, Billy Sunday stands as one of the most significant mass evangelists of the twentieth century. In his full-length biography of Sunday, Lyle Dorsett makes a fresh and original contribution to our understanding of this pugnacious baseball player turned preacher with his use of the Sunday daily papers, a source previously unavailable to biographers.

Editorial Reviews

E. Brooks Holifield
"Dorsett makes Billy Sunday come alive as a complex person, not a cardboard caricature. He notes the flaws, but despite all of Sunday's agonies and insecurities, Dorsett likes the man, and the result is a new awareness of the private complexity of a public celebrity."
