Item description for William Joseph Seymour: 1870-1922 by Rufus G. W. Sanders...
Overview "It is an outstanding study of William Joseph Seymour. The author sums up Seymour's significance, 'because of the tremendous power and appeal generated by Seymour's leadership at the Azusa Street Mission, history cannot erase him.'" JoAnn Ford Watson, Ph.D., Ashland Theological Seminary, Ashland, Ohio "Sanders is most helpful in constructing the context of turn-of-the-century America, the context in which Seymour came of age. Whether one agrees with all Sander' conclusions is not the issue; whether one understands the picture he paints is." Cecil M. Robeck, Jr., Ph.D., Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, California "Rufus Sanders' study of the life of William Seymour is an important contribution to the literature on the origins of the Pentecostal and Holiness movements at the turn of the century. Sanders' account adds details to our understanding of Seymour's early life and contains somefine detective work concerning his family's heritage. Most importantly, the work centrally confronts the role of race and racism in the early history of American Pentecostalism." Donald McQuarie, Ph.D., Director, American Culture Studies Program, Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, Ohio
