0 Reviews
At the turn of the century, when women were consigned mostly to the roles of wife and mother, Alma White developed into a fierce and successful religious leader and preacher. Stanley gives an overview of Alma's life, from childhood through her years of tent evangelism to her founding of the Pentecostal Union and the The Pillar of Fire--an intriguing life in which she embraced everything from vegetarism to an affiliation with the Ku Kux Klan.
