When I saw this book, I wanted to walk on by it. I had no interest in Aimee Semple McPherson. But something grabbed me, and I gave it a try. I couldn't put it down! The combination of Epstein's story-telling, and the facts of her life mesmerized me. Her life unfolded like the bud of a flower. Her life was a marvelous combination of spirituality, the blessing of God when she yielded to Him, and reaping what she sowed when she went out of bounds. But instead of looking down on her, it was a feeling of looking under a microscope and probing the life of a huge personality........finding marvelous highs and very sad lows. Epstein's telling of it landed the ball at my feet: I wondered how my life would read, if it were a book. It challenged me to think long and hard about myself. How am I living what I believe? ~ All in all, I came to the end of the book, with such satisfaction, that I couldn't read another book for at least two months. It stayed with me that long! It was the same feeling that you get when you've had the most marvelous steak dinner, and you just don't want to eat another bite of anything else, because what you've just eaten was magnificent. Because, in reading about her life, you read about someone who at least dared to try.....

When the rites rituals color music etc was forbidden by the reforormation and puritans would become more show business than religion in this era. The downfall of this lady put back and in question revivals for years many have followed and the same thing happened to question where the donations really went to cover production and union salaries
