Billy Sunday Preached His Last Sermon on This Day


Billy Sunday’s last sermon was on October 27, 1935.

Regardless of what you thought of his controversial methods, God used¬† former baseball player Billy Sunday to preach to more than 100 million people in his lifetime. According to The One Year Book of Christian History: “His unorthodox preaching style, acrobatic antics, and flamboyant gestures attracted the press, making him a household name.”

At the climax of his sermons on Sundays, he invited members of his audience to “walk the sawdust trail” to the front when they would make a commitment to follow Jesus Christ.

Ten days after preaching his last sermon he died.

It’s amazing the people God will use, regardless of what we think of the person.
