Reviews - What do our customers think?
A surprisingly good book about a strange and wonderful woman  Jun 15, 2008
This biography reads almost like fiction because the subject lived an amazing yet strange life. The book is a great example of how God utilizes the imperfect, not the perfect people, to do His will. Aimee Semple McPherson lived an extraordinary life. She had plenty of controversy and failures but she managed to touch thousands and perhaps millions of people. She changed people's lives in dramatic ways. The author did an amazing job because while I think he admired her, he managed to keep an objective perspective throughout the book. Regarding events that are not clearly known, he simply reported the facts, that events occurred and he did not draw conclusions or give his opinion. He simply told the story which was fascinating and did not contaminate it with his opinion.
What is needed is a tell-all book on this woman!  May 12, 2007
This book glosses over her scandals. Someone with an investigative bent should really check into this woman's life. She had issues! Fascinating, though.
Sister Aimee is the story of one of the world's greatest evangelist/preachers  Apr 17, 2007
Aimee Semple McPherson was born to a young mother and an old father on an Ontario farm in 1890. Her mother eventually divorced the father becoming a Salvation Army sister.
Aimee was precocious and charismatic from birth. She loved living on the farm with animals a special joy in her life. Aimee read Darwin in school becoming an agnostic for a brief period in her adolescence. She then met the Irish Pentecostal preacher Robert McPherson whom she married.
The couple were missionaries in China prior to the death of Robert in a malarial epidemic. The couple had two children Robereta and Rolf. Young widow Amy returned to America. She married a dull man in Harry McPherson who wanted her to stay home. Instead Amie, her mother and at times her children barnstormed across America preaching the gospel message. Amie had an ability as a faith healer. Epstein relates several miraculous cures Amie made of the deaf, blind and crippled.
Epstein devotes several chapters to Aimee's crusades and healing services. She was financially deprived until she hit the big time in large weeklong services in places like Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington DC and New York.
Aimee divorced McPherson and in the 1920 established Angelus Temple in Los Angeles. She founded the Foursquare Gospel Church;was a pioneer of religious broadcasting and gave thousands of sermons. Aimee was a skilled performer with many of her sermons being acted out in dramatic/musical presentations. She even wrote a religious opera; an autobiograpy and was one of the most famous women in America,
In 1926 she disappeared while swimming and was presumed dead. Several weeks later she emerged from the desert claiming she had been kidnapped. A court trial ensued accusing her of fradulence. Though acquitted she was never as popular as she once was. A third marriage to a 300 pounder proved a disastere. Aimee was highstrung, controlling, mesmerizing and completely devoted to her ministry. She knew many of the great folk of her day including Charlie Chaplin who gave her advice on staging at the Temple; Anthony Quinn was a musician in her Temple Band.
In her later years she was plagued by poor health and bad business decisions. She became estranged from her dominating mother and her daughter Roberta. Her son Rolf is still involved in Foursquare International Ministry.
Aimee had no racial prejudice and condemned the beliefs of the KKK who had given the Temple financial support. She was a fundamentalist Christian who would go into bars and nightclubs to preach to the people there in a loving manner. Aimee's faith was joyous and she eschewed hell fire and damnation sermons. She had an unlettered though brilliant mind.
She was sensitive,impetuous, lonely and moody.
Epstein's biography is positive in its view of Aimee Semple McPherson who used her abilities for God. I found it commendable that she and her Temple fed, clothed and ministered to thousands of Los Angeles residents during the Great Depression. Her patriotic rallies during World War II and sale of War Bonds is to be commended. Aimee died young worn out in body but her soul shines in a life well lived.
Thank you, Daniel Mark Epstein  Jun 25, 2006
I have never had a book effect me so personally before. I felt as though I was Sister Aimee. I attended L.I.F.E., the school she founded, and knew many of the people referred to. I was too young to have met Sister Aimee, but the book helped me to know the lady I so long have admired and never knew the entire story about. Thank you, Mr. Epstein for this wonderful book.
vaudeville  Jan 7, 2006
She seems to have been heavily influenced by both azuza street crowd i.e. much of today's pentecostalism/charasmatics i.e. the toronto/brownsville blessing (a history which is fraught with charlatans and very biblically problemic) and hollywood.

In studying many of her sermons what is readily apparent is the lack of any solid biblical understanding or doctrine. It was just get saved and jesus loves you. A cozy accomodation to the masses who can pretty much define that jesus they want to believe in and then follow.
