Almost no recordings remain of the thousands of hours that were broadcast from the Chicago Gospel Tabernacle. Featured here are three of the few remaining moments that have been preserved.

Paul Rader is the speaker in a presentation that combines the creation of the world, the life of Christ, and Christian witness in the modern world. Notice how the Tabernacle was using speech, sound and music to prodcue a program especially designed to use the strengths of radio, rather than just broadcasting a sermon. About 13 minutes.
