Four Days at Local Church i
Dr. W . O. Carver. D. D.. LLD..
Ph. D.. who occupies the chair of!
Comparative Religion and Missions!
in tin* Southern Baptist Seminary.
Louisville. Ky., delivered a series of
interesting lectures at the Baptist
church this week, covering the reli
gious work i'i a number of the for
eign fields of Southern Baptists.
Sunday morning. Dr. Carver laid
the foundation for his other lectures
in speaking on the topic. "God's
Continuous Interest in all Mankind."
using the Bible to prove his state
Sunday night, his lecture covered
South America, and dealt with the
peoples and the work in that field.
Monday night, he discussed Eu
rope and its different religions and
the progress being made by protes
tant denominations, going back and
tracing briefly the history of reli
gious movement there from the time
of the apostles, and the establish
ment of the Roman Catholic church
by Constantine about the year 313.
China was the topic of discussion
on Tuesday night, and Wednesday
night, he discussed the rapid rise of
Japan from an insignificant nation
to third place as a world power,
and the circumstances and treaty
which threw open the doors of that
nation to Christianity.
Dr. Carver is a world authority in
his field, and has written a number
of books dealing with religion and
missions, one of which is entitled
"All the World in All the Word."
This book he discussed every after
noon at 2:30 before the Woman's
Missionary Society which organiza
tion was studying this particular
book at the time of his visit.
It is claimed that the sun never
sets on the foreign mission fields of
Southern Baptists, and it has been
Dr. Carver's privilege to visit prac
tically every one of these fields.
His series of lectures here were
greatly enjoyed by those who heard
him, and every one was a veritable
lesson in history of the work and
religious movement of Southern
Baptists, as well as other denomi
nations, and was presented in a most
interesting and entertaining manner.
Dr. Carver left Thursday after
noon for Blue Ridge, Ga.. where he
will deliver a series of lectures be
fore the Blue Ridge Assembly on
the Book of Acts.
