Entertainments for Revenue

A suggestive little tract, entitled, "Church Entertainments for Revenue." by Rev. A. U. Boone, D.D., pastor of the First Baptist Church of Memphis. Tenn., has been published at the request of the Baptist Pastors Conference of that city. It is a candid, well-considered discussion of a subject which ought to be frankly faced by all our churches. If the giving of these entertainments for revenue is wrong—and that they are we think Dr. Boone very clearly shows—they should be given up forthwith, what-ever immediate effect the relinquishment of them may have upon the church treasury. That the ultimate effect will be beneficial, not only in placing the church finances on a sound and Scriptural basis, but in exalting the thought of Christians with regard to the grace of giving, we have no doubt. Dr. Boone's tract should have a wide distribution. It may be obtained, we presume, of the author, at ten cents a copy—The Examiner (Baptist).
