From the Back Cover:

In Sisters of the Spirit three black American women recreate their lives and proclaim their faith in themselves as women with an empowering mission. As preachers of the Christian gospel, Jarena Lee, Zilpha Elaw, and Julia Foote helped to launch a feminist revolution in American religious life and in American society as a whole.

From Publishers Weekly:

Andrews, a University of Wisconsin English professor, has collected the spiritual autobiographies of Jarena Lee, Zilpha Elaw and Julia Foote, who preached the gospel from 1836 to 1879 and were pioneers as women, preachers and blacks at a time when slavery was ending in the U.S. These memoirs chronicle difficult childhoods, religious conversions in revival camp meetings and adult lives dedicated to saving souls across black and white America. While some readers may find the evangelical language slow going, these texts remain important documents of racial and feminist radicalism in American religious life.
