"The Bloody Cross" and "The Bloody Sword": Two Timely Sermons

[Glendale, California: no publisher, circa 1940].

Price: $150.00

First edition. Small octavo. [16]pp. Illustrated. Original printed red wrappers. Fine. A fugitive pamphlet of sermons from this Southern California radio evangelist evidently cut from the same pattern as Sister Aimee Semple McPherson. Locy-West was also author of Some Plain Facts About the Underworld and Dope [Glendale? 1941]. Her sermons and verses here have largely to do with the redemptive power of blood: "Thank God there is a remedy for Sin, and it is the bloody way! Many folks do not wish to even speak about the bloody way! I remember going to a church many years ago, and they began taking out the blood songs from their hymnals. Many of those people saying, 'We do not want the blood songs---take them out! We don't want a religion that reminds us of a slaughter house!' I tell you, dearly beloved, there is nothing left upon which to stand when the blood is taken out of His Word!" With advertisements in the text and to the wrappers for Locy-West's morning radio shows daily on KGER (despite her bloody theology, her cognomen was evidently "Your Sunshine Pastor") as well as for her Saturday night Holy Ghost Broadcast. Not found on OCLC.
