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.
