For about a decade, starting in 1922, one of the most vibrant centers of evangelism in Chicago was the Chicago
Gosepel Tabernacle. The founder of the Tabernacle was Paul Rader, a man who
delighted in finding new ways to present the Gospel. The stroy of the Tabernacle is
well documented in the Archives in a variety of collections, including the
records of the Tabernacle (Collection 133) and materials by and about Rader
The Archives also has many interviews with people in which they describe the impact of the Tabernacle's ministry on their lives.

The first issue of The Sickle is undated, but is probably from the latter part of June, 1922. The Archives' copy is in Collection 38, Oversize Drawer 10).
