Overview

"Sisters of the Spirit... should interest a wider audience.... These
fascinating accounts can stand on their own.... Mr. Andrews has made them even more
accessible by providing a comprehensive introduction and helpful footnotes... but he
does not intrude on the text itself." -- New York Times Book
Review

"... informative and inspiring reading." -- The
Journal of American History

Jarena Lee, Zilpha Elaw, and Julia
Foote underwent a revolution in their own sense of self that helped to launch a
feminist revolution in American religious life and in American society as a
whole.
