New York: The Christian Alliance Publishing Company, (1927). First Edition. Anti-bolshevik, anti-semitic novel, set as a "Christian romance" among students and faculty at the fictional "Union Bible Institute." Contemporary events are mentioned, including the Bridgman Raid and the "discovery" of the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion (a document with which the author expresses solidarity). Knauss was a frequent contributor to right-wing periodicals, especially William Bell Riley's The Pilot and The Christian Fundamentalist, both organs of his Baptist ministry, with which Knauss was presumably associated.
