August 2008: Postcard Evangelism, Part III : Message Cards
For many years the Billy Graham Center Museum staff with
diligence and discernment collected postcards that had a religious theme,
especially cards were related in any way to Christian evangelism. The
collection grew to include thousands of items from throughout the 20th
century, mostly American, and of great variety. There are images of
meeting tents, churches, activities, denominations, individual evangelists,
illustrations of passages of scripture, Gospel messages and much more.
In 2006, this collection was transferred to the BGC Archives.
Several times during 2008 we are going to highlight particular sets
of cards with particular themes. This month the theme is message cards.
Postcards can send a message in more ways than one. For a century and
more, Christian churches and minis tires have used postcards as an ideal
means to send a simple, direct message emphasizing the shortness of
life or the power of sin, or the way of salvation through Jesus Christ
or the need to leave a committed Christian life.
One such card is on this page. Click here
to see several more.
