Millennial Dreams and Apocalyptic Nightmares
Oxford University Press

Numerous individuals aided my efforts toward this project in invaluable ways. I would like to thank the Interlibrary Loan Department and staff members at Northern Illinois University. The archivists at the Billy Graham Center Archives were especially patient and helpful on my frequent Friday visits. Those who worked with me at the Presbyterian Church in America Archives (St. Louis, Missouri), the American Jewish Archives (Cincinnati, Ohio), the Regional History Center (DeKalb, Illinois), and the Manuscript Division of the Library of Congress all helped to make my research a pleasant experience. In its dissertation stage, this work was supported by a Dissertation Completion Fellowship from the Graduate School, Northern Illinois University.

I am particularly indebted to David Kyvig, Jim Schmidt, Aaron Fogleman, J. D. Bowers, and Kate Wiegele for their advice, suggestions, criticism, and encouragement. Other faculty members at Northern Illinois University also aided me in this long, sometimes painful, but rewarding journey. I am thankful to all of my colleagues who patiently answered my sometimes tedious questions and provided me with invaluable guidance. I would also like to thank all of those who worked with me at Oxford University Press. To those individuals, organizations, and publishers who granted permission for the use of their material, I express my gratitude. Several students also became sources of inspiration and I would be remiss not to recognize them.

Finally, I would like to acknowledge the love and prayers of my family and friends. For providing encouragement, support, (p.viii) and diversion, I am grateful to Erin Lahr, Cierra Evans, Nicole and Tony Lahr, Rion and Andy Lahr, Katelyn and Ella Lahr, Mary and Wendall Lahr, Ethel Marie and Dorlan Wagner, Ruth Oldfather Wagner, Hémanth Samuel, and especially my parents, Sheila and Gale Lahr. I thank you. I love you.
