Synopses & Reviews

One of the most influential and dynamic evangelists of the twentieth century, Aimee Semple McPherson (1890-1944) was a complex, lively, and controversial figure with a flair for the dramatic. Against the backdrop of the Roaring Twenties, Sister Aimee, as she was widely known, cultivated her ministry, preaching the "old-fashioned gospel" and calling for a return to simple biblical Christianity.

Synopsis:

Synopsis:

This absorbing biography offers unique insight into McPherson's Canadian and Salvation Army roots and the motivation that led her towards evangelism later in life.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 394-405) and index.
