George W. Truett Sermons

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. Baylor University’s theological seminary is named in honor of his long legacy of service to the Lord.

This collection contains audio recordings of Truett’s sermons delivered from the pulpit at First Baptist Dallas. A selection of 26 discs released in 1966 by Waco’s Word Records is presented courtesy the Crouch Fine Arts Library, and a collection of 66 non-commercially released sermons recorded in the early 1940s is presented courtesy The Texas Collection.
