9780802837523: Aimee Semple McPherson: Everybody's Sister (Library of Religious Biography)

One of the most influential and dynamic evangelists of the twentieth century, Aimee Semple McPherson (1890-1944) was a complex, 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-time religion" and calling for a return to simple biblical Christianity. A religious leader who strongly identified with ordinary folk, McPherson attracted thousands of fiercely loyal followers throughout the United States and Canada.

Edith Blumhofer's thorough biography is grounded in extensive research and academic scholarship. The book offers unique insights into McPherson's Canadian and Salvation Army roots and her relationship with Pentecostalism. Significantly, Blumhofer had access to selected minutes of the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel, a resource not available to previous biographers, and contact with both of McPherson's children, Roberta Semple Salter and Rolf McPherson. Dozens of photographs also help to illustrate McPherson's multiple roles as missionary, radio broadcaster, editor, mother, wife, and--above all--colorful and inspiring evangelist.
