WILLIAMS Brilliant Lecturer, Historian, Essayist, who Has Written and Produced Many Radio and TV Programs … Dramatizes the Historical Heritage of Western Man THE REDPATH BUREAU Kimball Building Chicago 4, Ill. Phone: Harrison 7-8723 THE REDPATH BUREAU HOW ARD HIGGINS 507 Rockingham Street Rochester 20. New York Telephone: Hillside 1747 ALBERT N. WILLIAMS ALBERT N. WILLIAMS is a new name in the field of dramatizing and popularizing the historical heritage of Western man. He is a non-denominational scholar and authority in civilization's most fascinating field—the turbulent history of the birth and growth of our modern religious understanding. A graduate of Yale University, Mr. Williams was for several years a writer-producer of national network radio programs. From the studio he transferred to executive assignments, becoming Editor of the Latin American Short Wave Radio Service at the outbreak of the war, and, after naval duty in the Pacific, Editor-in-Chief of the English Language Division of the Voice of America. He was, at the same time, a contributing editor of the Saturday Review. He has also written for Cosmopolitan, Colliers, and other national magazines, including Reader's Digest. Later he became a faculty member of the University of Denver, and, since 1947, had authored 9 books, most of which are popular re-tellings of various dramatic facets of the origin and display of our Christian faith. He is currently co-editor (with his wife) of a new series of popular biographies for teen-age readers: HEROES OF GOD. On the lecture platform, as in radio and television appearances, Mr. Williams has the rare gift of turning history into yesterday's Page One NEWS! MR. WILLIAMS' LECTURE SUBJECTS Four Voices of Darkness The fascinating account of the birth of the Christian faith in the most troubled days of the Roman Empire, and, against this background, exciting human interest sketches of the four men who gave the world the four gospels. The Battle Ground of the First and Last World Wars An illuminating guided tour of Jerusalem across the span of 3,000 years of turbulent history gives a new and dramatic insight into the desperate troubles of the Middle East today—the powder keg of World War III. Our Children Have No Heroes Describing the events of the past few years that have led to the ban of the Bible study and reading—even as literature—in our schools. Concrete suggestions for making our young readers once again aware of the stirring and heroic history of the Old and New Testament that brought western civilization into being. One Book—Two Thousand Years of Struggle A rapid survey of the role that the Bible played in the evolution of our modern culture, literature, law and customs OUTSIDE the church; How our Bible came into being—the struggle, the drama, the tragedies that accompanied its long evolution to the greatest single piece of literature the world has ever known in any language. The Drama of the Bible A master story teller, Mr. Williams gives his listeners the clues for the plot line that ties the whole book together—a gripping and fascinating three act play with all mankind the hero. The Menace from the East—2500 Years Ago and Today A graphic account of the struggle for power between Israel and her enemies in the east, which resulted in the magnificent prophesies of Isaiah and Jeremiah. The Bible tells our statesmen how to keep America from being destroyed as Israel was. MR. WILLIAMS' BOOKS RECEIVE HIGHEST PRAISE Book of the Month Club News (THE BOOK BY MY SIDE) Scholarship and entertainment are admirably blended for readability.
