"Sister Aimee: The Aimee Semple McPherson Story": A Screenplay by Richard Rossi
The front page headlines, tabloids and gossip-mongers had a field day in the Roaring Twenties, shouting:

According to Christianity Today writer-filmmaker Richard Rossi "probes deeper" than any other book or film on Sister Aimee. Videohound Golden Retriever Movieguide says what sets his work on Sister Aimee apart is "Rossi takes a compassionate and sympathetic look" at the total story. Both of Rossi's award-winning films are available on DVD on Amazon under the title "Richard Rossi 5th Anniversary of Sister Aimee."

REVIEWS:

"Sister Aimee: The Aimee Semple McPherson Story" is as provocative as it is touching and explores the human side of one of America's towering spiritual icons. You'll find a sensitive script, ample acting, and a story that portrays the Pentecostal woman, who like the rest of us, lived in a skin of real flesh...If you can believe that Christian legends still wear a skin that longs to be touched, THIS MOVIE IS A MUST-SEE!" (Charisma Magazine, Ed Donnally)

"In spite of being a devout atheist (an oxymoron I imagine), I've always found the people involved with any religion to be fascinating. Director Rossi wants us to know the evangelist who became a sensation touring around the world and preaching her Christian beliefs...Rossi doesn't gloss over her indiscretions. He paints a lovelorn woman...not a deified woman. Mimi Michaels (as Aimee) is a force of passion and conviction..." (Filmthreat )

In this book, considered the best of the books about Sister Aimee by the International Communion of Charismatic Churches, Academy Award-considered filmmaker Richard Rossi shares what he learned about the Miracle Woman by making two movies about Sister Aimee ("Saving Sister Aimee", the Oscar-considered documentary in which he interviewed primary witnesses like Aimee's daughter, leading man, co-pastor, and secretary and his feature dramatic film "Sister Aimee") Due to popular and worldwide demand to have his screenplay in book form, Rossi's screenplay and introduction are presented here as he tells Aimee's story in his critically acclaimed award-winning script from the Aimee biopic voted the greatest guerrilla film of all time.
