August 24th marks the 130th anniversary of the birth of evangelist and religious broadcasting pioneer Paul Rader. He was raised in the wild-west, would become the Senior Pastor at Moody Church and fed an incredible number of Chicago’s Northside residents during the great depression.

These special features look at the life and legacy of Paul Rader.  The audio comes from a 1-hour documentary I produced in 2003 entitled: Save Them: The Life of Paul Rader, Christian Radio Pioneer. The video is available to download at Behemoth.com and is also available on DVD or VHS. Copies are available for purchase. If interested, email me at paul.butler@moody.edu.

Guests include:

Mark Ward, Christian Radio Historian, author of Music in the Air
Larry Eskridge, historian at the Institute for the Study of American Evangelicals
Paul A. Rader, former President of Asbury College, Wilmore, KY
James Snyder, historian and author of Paul Rader: Portrait of an Evangelist
Art Rorhiem, co-founder of Awana International Ministries
