McGehee III, Fielding M.
This summary corresponds to the excerpt provided here. In this recording of a sermon by Jim Jones in September 1973, Jones declares that the "Sky god" is dead and that they will have to make heaven for themselves. The original summary was prepared by Fielding M. McGehee III, who also provided the title and caption here, and appears on the Jonestown Institute's Web site, along with the full sound file and a transcript. The original tape was retrieved from Guyana by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation as part of their investigation into the assassination of Congressman Leo J. Ryan. Their initial review of the tape was in 1979.
