A thorough record of the 1892 non-denominational, evangelical Christian convention including the addresses and reports given. One of these is a talk given by Booker T.

A wide variety of other topics are covered, e.g. The Stereopticon and its Uses in Christian Work; Christian Nurses for the Sick Poor; International Medical Missionary Society; Work for Fallen Women; The Bedford Street Mission (Philadelphia); Tracts and How to Use Them; Gospel and Colportage Carriage Work; Evangelistic Solution of the Country Church Problem; Work Among Factory Girls; Progress Report from Burnham Farm (Canaan, NY); An Excursion for Poor Children and What Became of It; Christian Work for Jews; Correspondence Work for Prisoners; Work Among Firemen; Christian Work Among Indians, Mormons and Mexicans; How to Care for Revival Converts in a Great City; Aggressive Work in Whitechapel (London); The Anti-Gambling Association; Tent Work in Chicago; Rescue Work for Women in Western India; Christian Homestead Mission (Buffalo, NY, featuring a map of the Canal Street vicinity showing the locations of the houses of ill-repute, liquor stores, free theatres, etc.).

One appendix shows the portraits of 40 "saved drunkards" and provides their names and biographies (some of them quite detailed). Previous owner was the Rev. John August H. Wuttke (1870-1948), a Baptist minister who served at churches in Bethany (Oregon), Tacoma, Winnipeg, Los Angeles and Sacramento.
