Turn the Pulpit Loose
Two Centuries of American Women Evangelists
  • By Priscilla Pope-Levinson
In this exciting new anthology, Priscilla Pope-Levison challenges the notion that evangelism was solely a male enterprise by highlighting the fascinating lives of eighteen women evangelists, from the late 1700s to the present. Pope-Levison provides the reader with primary source material by women such as Sojourner Truth and Evangeline Booth, and lesser-known figures such as Jarena Lee (an African Methodist from the early 1800s) and Uldine Utley (a child evangelist in the early 1900s). Each chapter weaves together brief narrative glimpses of the evangelist's life with primary source material on three topics: her conversion and calling to preach, her primary evangelistic method, and her reflections about women. Photos of each evangelist are included. This anthology is an indispensable resource for a wide range of academic fields, including history, women's studies, and literature.
