Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Throughout the South, the tradition of the Great Revival, almost 200 years old, survives and flourishes in male-dominated evangelism. As Sims (The Klan) concludes from observation of a variety of evangelists and faith healers, there is no clear way to distinguish charlatans from the sincere who purport to be emissaries of the Lord. Instead, she conveys the human elements, the needs that bring "many poor as well as middle-class Protestants who feel lost and estranged in an increasingly complicated world" into the auditoriums and tents of revivalists. With Sims's respectful guidance and nonjudgmental approach, the reader enters a unique, unfamiliar world. Though not as well known as their flamboyant progenitor, Billy Sunday, each of the revivalists interviewed (H. Richard Hall, Mike Shreve, Wayne Simmons et al.), sometimes referred to as "one-man denominations," is shown as a powerful influence on the lives of many Americans. A bibliography on the contemporary revival phenomenon is appended.

From Library Journal

Having attended some 50 revivals and taped more than 225 hours of services and interviews in six years, Sims gives an outsider's unbiased look at Southern Pentecostal revivalism. Each of her seven chapters revolves around a particular evangelist, such as R. W. Schambach or Tommy Walker, disclosing one aspect of the phenomenon. Interviews with workers and worshipers as well as evangelists are included, as are eyewitness accounts of snake handlers and attempted resurrections. More important is Sims's feel for the spirit of this type of religion; her peek under the tent flap offers real color and flavor. With a good bibliography. C. Robert Nixon, M.L.S., Lafayette, Ind.

Good book, although I don't think the chapter on snake handling even belongs in this book. I think its the longest chapter, and the least relevant to the title. The last two chapters were the best, and it had a great ending.

I wish she had examined her featured preachers better, they are a mixture of those who made significant contributions and classic con artists.
But maybe that's what she intended.
a cross section.
