Prepare for the End

Will Jesus Come this Year? CoverWill Jesus Come…
This Year
Positive Proof that the End is Near
Grant
~1950

I have to say I am kind of loving our good friend Rev. Grant and his somewhat hysterical doom and gloom pamphlets. Not too long ago we featured his special title, Work with Less Energy. This particular title is all about end times. Some of our best indicators are some of the more evil man made problems such as: heart disease, the atomic bomb, radio and television. Our dear Rev. Grant has got you covered with lots of scripture and advice so you can be fully prepared for the end. Not buying it? Don’t be too sad. They say it’s a dry heat in hell.

See you on the other side,

Work With Less Energy
Grant
~1955

Are you overworked? Can’t meet those deadlines? Forget your calendar and to-do list! God wants you to take a moment and look around. Rev. Grant came to an epiphany one day after watching people work:

“Today I watched a negro working. You know how they do. They work so relaxed, so gracefully.”

Evidently a few metaphors, Bible verses, and standing around watching people work is the key.

Church Members Who Make God Sick
Rice
1944

Of course I had to pick up this title. Evidently, you are all making God sick when you blow off church, fail to read the Bible, and a host of other behaviors. Our author wants you to get off your butt and quit phoning in your Christian faith. These little vintage sermon books are always a bit interesting and I kind of get a kick out of the sensational titles. I am not sure that more modern, mainstream clergy would necessarily disagree with the intent, but probably would do it with a softer sell.
