On the 100th anniversary of the Haystack Prayer meeting in Williamstown, Massachusetts, Davis sets out to explain the origin of Christianity's missionary efforts. He traces Christianity's intellectual/administrative sources to Jewish tradition, Greek philosophy, and Roman government. The sermon feels unfinished, and there is a note confirming this. However, it is noted as being preached on Oct 14, 1906.
