Item description for One Nightclub and a Mule Barn by Marilyn A. Hudson, Mark Arthur & Gary Burchette...
Overview Pentecostalism in Oklahoma is also virtually unexplored territory among histories. This book provides a fascinating glimpse into the nature and character of a large segment of Oklahomans who share ties to the Holiness-Pentecostal tradition. This book also provides a history of Southwestern Christian University, a rich aspect of Oklahoma history.
Publishers Description On a mild summer day in 1946, on the outskirts of Oklahoma City, a small group of people that included C.H. Williams, R.O. Corvin, and Oral Roberts, eyed some property for sale. The men were searching for a possible site for a new Bible school for the Pentacostal Holiness Church. The "Abe Hale Nightclub," an old barn and a few buildings, sitting on over seven acres might have seemed an unlikely choice, but men with vision saw it had possibilities..."Southwestern Bible College" was being born. For the first time the story of the pre-statehood roots, the 1946 birth, development, challenges, and rebirth of Oklahoma's first Pentecostal junior college, one of the states largest at one time, is shared in "One Nightclub and A Mule Barn." The history of the school known over the years as "Southwestern Bible College," "Oklahoma City Southwestern College," "Southwestern College of Christian Ministries," and now "Southwestern Christian University" is one intermingled with Oklahoma history.

First Look At Oklahoma's First Pentecostal-Charismatic School Dec 20, 2008
This is an easy to read look at the saga of one school's struggle to be created, follow its vision, overcome obstacles, and stagger back onto its feet. The authors point out that this is a character of Oklahoma itself. The authors point out that there has been little real work into the role of environment in developing institutions - religious or otherwise - in Oklahoma. The attitude of the work is realistic yet supportive of the people who have helped keep the dream alive for over 60 years. It is a lot like a family history and the family is Southwestern Christian University.
