Rising Tide



In the fall of 1937, Americans started seeing the phrase “Rising Tide” everywhere. It was in newspaper advertisements and bookstore windows, and on postcards appearing mysteriously in the mail. Eventually they learned that “Rising Tide” was a slick one-issue magazine, proclaiming a new hope for America and the world through faith, cooperation, and trust—all being brought about through the work of the Oxford Group.
