CARVER IN SERIES LECTURES fT orld Authority on Comparative j Religion and Misisons Speaks For j 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 ments. 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.
