[Pittsburgh?]: 1885. Approx. 4" x 6" Item #027841

. 4 pages. A rare pamphlet not listed in OCLC. The last page notes that both Moody and Sankey will be present at all the sessions with Moody presiding or participating in all discussions and Mr. Sankey in charge of the singing. On the program was "How to reach non-church goers", "Address to young men only" (3 of these aimed presumably at those who need to be motivated to live good Christian lives and a willingness to serve). On the Sabbath (not using the term Sunday), there was a service aimed at "Non-Church goers" and another "To Women only". It notes tickets will be required but they are free of charge. There are time limits of 15 minutes to all speakers. Our comment: Richard Hofstader in his Anti-Intellectualism in America notes that Moody was also open to both liberal and the more conservative churches. The Pittsburgh Post of April 10, 1885 had an article describing the D.L. Moody's size and his presence with the tremendous emotional response of 500 people being moved to make a profession of faith. Creasing from folds, some soiling to outer margin of title page and tiny closed edge tears.
