James Gordon Lindsay was born in Zion City, Illinois, in 1906. His parents were disciples of Alexander Dowie, the father of healing revivalism in America. After the family moved to Portland, Oregon, the young boy was influenced by John H. Lake and converted by Charles G. Parham. At the age of eighteen he began his ministry as a traveling evangelist conducting meetings in Assembly of God churches and other Pentecostal groups.

When World War II broke out, Lindsay accepted a call to become pastor of a church in Ashland, Oregon. In 1947 he resigned the position to become William Branham's manager. Soon after Lindsay's publication, The Voice of Healing, appeared in 1948 Branham announced his retirement from the revival circuit. The news came as quite a blow to Lindsay who along with Jack and Anna Jeanne Moore had just begun the revival publication to cover Branham's meetings. Revivals and coverage of other evangelists began to appear in the magazine as it circulated nationwide.

The group sponsored the first convention of healing evangelists in Dallas, Texas during December 1949. Voice of Healing began to function as a loose fellowship of ministers. As the popularity of some members rose they left the fellowship to establish their own organizations and publish their own literature.

Lindsay's own work began to move in the direction of missions. He began sponsoring missions programs in several foreign countries and started a radio ministry. During 1956 he conducted a Winning the Nations Crusade sending teams of ministers all around the world. The Voice of Healing magazine changed names briefly to World-Wide Revival in 1968 before the final change to Christ for the Nations.

Lindsay was a very productive writer, publishing over 250 volumes of historical and doctrinal books on the healing revival movement. His ministry came to a halt with his sudden death April 1, 1973. Lindsay's wife Freda and daughter Carole continued the work he began. Christ for the Nations, Inc. had five main facets: a national church program; a national literature work; a Jewish mission in Israel; a Bible training school in Dallas; and a prayer and tape ministry.

Scope and Content

The collection contains fifty-four cassette tapes published by Christ for the Nations. Four sermon series delivered by Lindsay include fourteen sermons on the "Life of Christ" (T48-T54); sixteen sermons on the Gifts of the Spirit (T40-T47); eighteen sermons on the book of Revelation (T31-T39); and four sermons on Satan (T29-T30). Other tapes contain messages by Lindsay, his wife, and an address by Charles Kopp.

Tape T25 consists an interview with Mrs. Lindsay one year after the evangelist's death. She discusses Lindsay's entrance into the ministry, development of The Voice of Healing magazine, and building the Bible college in Dallas. Charles Kopp relates the characteristics of his work in Israel on tape T11.
