Summary

  • This manual consists of a sermon presented at Saint Luke's Lutheran Church, on 13 February 1921 in Centre Hall, Pennsylvania. This antidance work argues that dance is injurious to the health, is usually accompanied by drinking alcohol, and forces young men to stray from serious reflection and prayer. Typical of this genre of literature, the book contains testimonials from numerous denominations including the Roman Catholic Church, Episcopal Church, Baptist Church, Presbyterian Church, and Methodist Church.
