Reviews - What do customers think about Phineas F. Bresee?
Phineas F. Bresee May 5, 2008
I purchased this for a class that I am taking to make a paper on. I found it fulfilling and spoke the root of Phineas F. Bresee.
Concise to the point of ambiguity Sep 24, 2004
I first read this book as a required text as an undergrad. I didn't like it much. In seminary, I took a second look at it and found that this book is more than just a biography of Bresee. This book is JAM-PACKED with information regarding Bresee's roots in Methodism and his role in uniting holiness churches. It is a go-to book for my history of the Church of the Nazarene because of Bangs' excellent detail. I give this book four stars instead of five for the following reason: Bangs is too concise. Normally people like that, right? I wanted Bangs to say more in each paragraph precisely because some great historical information got lost in ambiguity--thus a student's need for secondary sources. It left me with the feeling that this book was rushed to the presses.
