KNIGHT IS COMING HEAR HIM — READ HIS BOOKS DR. CHARLES SPURGEON KNIGHT of San Jose, California. A man of fine platform presence, a past master in the art of speech-making. A speaker of rare ability. He has mastered his subject and delivers it in a fascinating way. He not only portrays vivid pictures, but causes his listeners to enjoy the living, pulsating scene itself, calling attention to the historic, poetic and sublime in a way most ennobling, entertaining and instructive. THOUSANDS HAVE HEARD HIM — HAVE YOU? Wm. G. Frost, D.D., L.L.D., Berea College, Kentucky, says: We have had some very rare evangelists to lead us in meetings, including Chapman and Torrey. I think, however, we never had a more successful revival than that when the preacher was Charles Spurgeon Knight. He spoke in a way that arrested attention and made the truth clear. He had the sound doctrine and the sympathetic heart which led our young people in great numbers into the light. A very large proportion of those who began a Christian life had such direction and impulse that they have continued as growing Christians. As teacher, evangelist and superintendent of extension, he had a very wide influence. Always interesting and sound, and one the people love to hear. The Baraboo Valley (Wisconsin) Ministerial Association says: His heart is bubbling over with evangelism and his ability as a speaker and organizer is a match for his increasing fervor. Walter L. Bachrodt, City Superintendent of Schools, San Jose, California, speaking of Our Contemporary Ancestors, said This lecture would be a valuable contribution to the education of our teachers. I should like to have it given before groups of educators and at teachers' institutes. Dr. Millard L. Thomas, Director of Baptist Religious Education for Northern California, in commenting on the enthusiastic reception of Dr. Knight's lecture, What Are You Driving At? by a large audience of young people, said: You carried them away in your pocket. Testimonials The First Baptist Church, Pontiac, Michigan, passed the following unanimous resolutions: Whereas, the Rev. C. S. Knight, D.D., has been pastor of this church for nearly four and a half years; and whereas, the Lord has blessed and honored his work by many conversions and additions to the church; and whereas, he has resigned to take another charge; now therefore, be it resolved that we part with Brother Knight with great regret, and that we hereby express our confidence in him as a true Bible teacher and preacher of the Gospel, and also as an earnest worker in church and civic affairs in this city and throughout the state. The Sunday School Times, commenting on Dr. Knight's book, BOTH SIDES OF EVOLUTION, says: We admit that one who can present both sides of a question so ably without betraying his own position is something of a psychological puzzle. Dr. Arthur I. Brown, C.M., Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh, in his introduction to The Religion-Science of the Great Pyramid, says: Dr. Knight has done a notable service in presenting this arresting theme in the forceful, magnetic manner he exhibits. We commend the book to those thinking individuals open minded enough to accept a 'new thing'. Dr. T. T. Martin, Writer, Lecturer and Evangelist, says: Dr. Knight's presentation of the Evolution question is masterly. Dr. W. F. Harper, Executive Secretary, Southern California Baptist Convention, says: Dr. Knight has my highest esteem as a friend and brother. He has been a popular college professor and a lecturer of note who not only instructs but interests his hearers. Dr. David Starr Jordan of Stanford University, commenting on Dr. Knight's statement that war results in the survival of the UNFITTEST, says: I agree with your statement, as reasonable and up to date. It is a matter of enormous importance, the most important that science has ever contributed to the subject of war. The Berkeley (California) Independent calls him Evangelist, preacher, poet, orator. The Christian Truth Publishers, San Jose, California, speaking of Dr. Knight's lecturing in the East, say: At Buffalo two thousand people heard him in the famous Churchill Tabernacle. The District Conference Summer School of the United Bretheren Church at Findlay Lake, New York, sidetracked their program in order to hear this lecture, and were delighted. Fifteen hundred people heard him in the Tabernacle of the First Baptist Church, Pontiac, Michigan. The Kansas Free Methodist Camp Meeting at Manhattan, Kansas, welcomed him for a lecture, and from the Bishop down to the young people they were enthusiastic over it. Everywhere pastors and people manifested their deep interest and sincere appreciation. Alonzo L. Baker, Editor Signs of the Times, Mountain View, California, says: Dr. Knight is a fearless and able advocate of the fundamental truths of the Bible. He is also a forceful and entertaining speaker. No one can listen to him without being interested and instructed. THE WONDERS OF THE GREAT PYRAMID—By means of many wonderful 12-foot pictures, Dr. Knight takes his auditors through the weird, mysterious passages of the Great Pyramid. They learn all about its science and symbolism, visit King Tut's Tomb, see temples, mummies and a hundred other things of gripping interest. THE BIBLE IN THE STARS—Using many extraordinary pictures, Dr. Knight demonstrates that the story of man's redemption is outlined in the stars. As the marvelous narrative unfolds hearts are touched, doubters are convinced, and faith in God and His Word is mightily strengthened. THE FETTERS OF HABIT—Given dozens of times in the South. It shows up the dangers of impure thoughts, cigarette smoking, liquor and drug habits, and how to break these galling chains. The lecture is scientific as well as entertaining, very dramatic and convincing from start to finish. OUR CONTEMPORARY ANCESTORS — As Superintendent of College Extension, Dr. Knight became intimately acquainted with Our Contemporary Ancestors, who live in that beautiful but secluded section of our Southern states known as The Mountains—home of Alvin York, famous war hero; land of feuds and hospitality, saddles and six-shooters, kind hearts and level heads, which has been made famous by such books as The Trail of the Lonesome Pine, The Shepherd of the Hills, etc. This lecture is absolutely unique, and always enthusiastically received.

Riley and John Roach Straton commend it in the highest terms. GOD'S LAWS OF INCREASE—This great thrift lecture based upon the Law of the Tithe has been given repeatedly, and is always most enthusiastically received. The Detroit Baptist Pastors' Union gave it their unqualified approval and begged that it be given a wide hearing. THE BEST SELLER—This lecture is in constant demand. In it the speaker becomes a book agent selling the Bible. He shows why it is the most popular of all books and the best seller.

Winrod calls Dr. Knight A great character, scholar, author, lecturer, preacher and pulpit orator; a charming man and a fascinating speaker. Richmond (Kentucky) Inquirer says: Dr. Knight is a man of fine platform presence, a past master in the art of speechmaking; an entertainer who kept his audience laughing while he proved his points. Dr. W. B. Riley, Pastor First Baptist Church, Minneapolis, Minnesota, says: I have read two volumes by Dr. Charles S. Knight, Both Sides of Evolution, and The Religio-Science of the Great Pyramid. The first volume I count the VERY BEST in existence to give a fair presentation of both sides. The second volume deals with a somewhat new and startling question. Dr. Knight has given it careful study, and to say the very least his LECTURE and book on this subject are intensely suggestive and illuminating. Dr. John Roach Straton, Pastor Calvary Baptist Church, New York, says: Dr. Charles Spurgeon Knight of San Jose is well known to me. He is a scholarly and able preacher, a valiant defender of the faith of our fathers. I commend him to the favorable consideration of all patriotic American citizens, and all true believers. Mr. W. H. Dool, Warden California Redwood Park, says: Dr. C. S. Knight's lecture on Egypt and the Great Pyramid was greatly enjoyed by about five hundred tourists here. I cheerfully recommend the Rev. Mr. Knight to all park wardens and owners of auto camps as a very interesting speaker. Redlands (California) Daily Paper says: His lectures on the Great Pyramid and charts created widespread interest in our city. Dr. C. W. Brinstad, Secretary Northern California Baptist Convention, says: I can heartily recommend Dr. Charles Spurgeon Knight, and with him go my prayers for his great success. Brother Knight has been conspicuous in his pastoral work, from the pulpit and on the lecture platform. Santa Cruz (California) Sentinel says: The First Baptist Church was crowded last night to haer Dr. Knight on The Great Pyramid. He was at his best, holding the audience in rapt attention during the whole of the period. The slides brought out the details of the passageways and rooms and under the magnetic personality of the speaker one reveled in this altogether extraordinary lecture. There is a possibility that on account of the numbers turned away that a return date will be made with the lecturer of the evening. Dr. Paul Rood, President Bryan Bible League, Turlock, California, says: Dr. Knight is a speaker of rare ability. He has mastered his subject and delivers it in a fascinating way. I urge pastors to avail themselves of the opportunity to hear this strong and inspiring message. The Committee of the Faculty of Berea College, Berea, Kentucky, says: We wish to put on record our high appreciation of the work and ministry of Dr. Knight among us during the past seven years. As preacher, teacher, and friend, he has been a brother beloved. His zeal as an evangelist and as a promoter of all good works has been untiring. The college, the community and the mountain region will greatly miss him. Rev. R. S. McIntyre, Pastor of First Baptist Church, Mountain View, California, says: The many pictures Dr. Knight shows make his lecture very instructive as well as interesting. There need be no hesitation in putting on these lectures, because thinking people of all classes flock to hear them and contribute liberally to the nightly offerings for the speaker.
