About this collection

George W. Truett (1867-1944) was a noted Baptist preacher, former president of the Southern Baptist Convention, and Baylor University alumnus. He was the long-serving pastor of First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas. In 1920, Truett delivered his now-famous "Baptists and Religious Liberty" speech on the steps of the U.S. Capitol. This collection contains audio recordings of sermons delivered from the pulpit by Truett and released on vinyl by Waco’s Word Records (courtesy the Crouch Fine Arts Library) and a collection of non-commercially released sermons recorded in the early 1940s and preserved by The Texas Collection.
