THE GOSPEL BLIMP (1967), The film adaptation of Christianauthor Joseph Bayly's popular satire, is a sly indictment ofnon-personal evangelism. The film chronicles the wild ideaby a group of Christian neighbors, pondering how best toreach people with the Gospel, to buy a full-blown BLIMP andspread the Gospel from on high. Among their ill-consideredtechniques is dropping Bible tract bombs on unwary victimsand blasting Christian music so loud it pains the ears ofcitizens and induces dogs to howl. The film cleverly makesthe point that there is no substitute for the personalsharing of one's faith. This once highly popular classic1960's Christian comedy from Gospel Films was directed byIrwin 'Shorty' Yeaworth.
