3rd printing
Abstract: 
"The Waukegan Historical Society was founded in 1968 to help keep the city's history alive. Through numerous programs and presentations the society has provided a record of many of the contributors to Waukegan's growth and importance. Publication of a photo record seems like a natural continuation of this mission. The memorable images collected in "Waukegan, Illinois" are of those people and events that made the city great, and were selected from the society's archives. We hope that many memories may be sparked as one wanders through our collective past."

Take It to the Streets: Chicago's Operation Harvest -- A Bold Innovation in Community Outreach

Date: 
1987
Edition: 
1st
Abstract: 
In July 1986, dozens of Chicago congregations, (Black, White, Hispanic, rich, poor) from every part of the city worked together to bring a message of love, hope and faith to the people of Chicago. They made the city a church without walls for that summer, their outreach touching even the elegant lakefront and the gang-ruled housing projects. This is the story of the churches, the events, but most of all the people who who took a dream and made it happen. From operation Harvest comes a new blueprint for urban evangelism.
