1907 The Sowerby Psychic Lectures Figure FOR CHAUTAUQUAS, TEACHERS' INSTITUTES, STAR COURSES Management of HOLBROOK BARKER CO. BUSH TEMPLE THEATRE, CHICAGO FOREWORD EACH year is manifesting the increased interest of Chautauqua audiences in psychic study. The Sowerby Psychic Lectures are fulfilling a great place in satisfying this increasing and intelligent in-interest. At every Chautauqua Assembly where he has appeared, the Rev. J. H. Sowerby, Psychic Lecturer, has received the most enthusiastic attention. He has not attended a single assembly where his morning audiences have not reached hundreds. It is perhaps safe to say also, that no other morning lecturer has received so extended press notices—column reports being quite the common thing. The effort of these lectures is to show the great vantage-ground of Evangelical Christianity, as the medium through which to account for the wonderful psychic phenomena of the rapidly advancing age, and the effort is so successfully accomplished, that no person who wishes to know truth, whether desiring to be classed as orthodox or otherwise, can afford to miss these up to-date discussions. The lectures are heartily endorsed by Christian ministers, educators, Chautauqua managers, and the public generally. In thought, logical and comprehensive. In treatment, unique and complete. In humor, inspiring and chaste. In manner, earnest and charming. THE LECTURES Course Lectures 1. The Place the Bible Holds in the Discussion. 2. The Divine Image in Man. 3.

Sowerby stirred my soul to its depths. No one can hear these lectures and live the life as before. G. W. L. Meeker, Supt. of Schools, Canton, Ill. Dr. Sowerby has made a critical study of psychological phenomena and his lectures are especially instructive and valuable to teachers, and are exceedingly interesting to all who hear them. Maynard Lee Daggy, Platform Supt. of Chautauquas. Rev. Sowerby made the people think; he gave them high ideals, and he presented his subjects from a new point of view. J. S. Dancey, Platform Manager, Bloomington, Ill. Rev. Sowerby, with a gentleness which injures the feelings of none, leads the confused but eager public mind through much of the fanatical and grotesque teaching on the subject to a solid philosophical and scriptural basis. O. L. Wilson, Manager, Aurora Chautauqua Assembly. The series of lectures presented by Dr. J. H. Sowerby at our assembly were well received and much interest was manifested in them by those in attendance. To Whom It May Concern: I have heard Dr. Sowerby in his psychic lectures on the Bible. I consider him in his line the most logical, convincing, scriptural, edifying lecturer on the American platform. He is a thorough Christian gentleman. Get him on your program. Yours truly, W. H. SEARS. Press Commendation The Pantagraph, Bloomington, Ill. Mr. Sowerby is an attraction for any Chautauqua, bringing new thoughts on a popular subject, couched in crisp sentences. He is interesting, but not sensational, there being a vein of humor running through his more serious talk, and to many persons weary of strife and bitterness, and doubts, his words come as a consolation and a benediction. The Sterling Evening Gazette, Sterling, Illinois. His lectures are rapidly arousing interest in this scientific question, and without wonder, for to hear him once is to desire to hear him again. The Sterling Standard, Sterling, Illinois. The big tent was well filled Monday morning by people who had gone to hear Rev. J. H. Sowerby develop his theme 'The Divine Image in Man.' His subject was handled in a scholarly way, being embellished with the charm of a gifted eloquence and a most felicitous diction. Free Press, Sandwich, Ill. While strong as a lecturer, it is in the pulpit that the true greatness of Dr. Sowerby is seen. The sermon he gave Sunday morning will always be remembered as one of the best numbers in the Sandwich Chautauqua of 1906. The Janesville Daily Gazette, Janesville, Wis. This is proving one of the most interesting series of lectures ever delivered in this city. When the doctor is off the platform it is a common thing to see him surrounded by thirty or forty interested persons who are eagerly trying to gain more information on this important subject which is for the first time being presented to them from the truly Christian and Evangelical standpoint.
