Gender and Pentecostal Revivalism provides an interdisciplinary, theoretically engaged answer to an enduring question for charismatic Christianities: how do women lead churches? By examining the ministries of two famous (and infamous) Pentecostal revivalists, Maria Woodworth-Etter and Aimee Semple McPherson, this study shows that a woman's success in the ministry was not simply about access to ordination. It was about establishing legitimacy as a woman and authority as a pastor – no small task in the early twentieth century. Woodworth-Etter and McPherson succeeded by drawing from popular feminine ideals and Pentecostal biblical models of womanhood to unite their two seemingly contradictory identities of woman and minister during the ritualized act of revivalist preaching. In the process, the women created biblical theologies that are alive and well in Pentecostal-charismatic circles today. Their negotiations of gender, race, class, and religious leadership continue to inspire generations of imitators, and their stories illuminate how female ministers were made in early twentieth-century America.

About the Author:

Leah Payne is the Louisville Institute Postdoctoral Fellow in American Religious History/Women's Studies at George Fox University, USA. Her research interests include American religious history, gender and performance theory, and popular culture and religion.

Review:

“In the face of a lack of in-depth studies on these intriguing religious figures, the book aims to fill the gap in existing religious and gender studies scholarship, offering a theoretically-based, interdisciplinary study. ... a fascinating historical journey through the process of establishing legitimacy as a woman pastor in the early twentieth century. Therefore, this book represents a valuable contribution to the history of American revivalism, religion and gender studies and to the further research of female evangelists.” (Aleksandra Djurić Milovanović, Religion & Gender, Vol. 7 (2), 2017)
