Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I ordered this book and read it through primarily because of the scarcity of materials on the subject of Alma White's life, which profoundly interesects with the rise of the Pentecostal Movement among the holiness-sects that left Methodism in the 1890's. The book held my interest despite some serious failings by its author, who interprets Ms. White's life and work through a politically-biased lens. Fortunately, the title plainly includes the word; "Feminist", thus making little pretense. Nonetheless (and regrettably), the author's feministic-thesis tends to undermine the biography in terms of its objectivity and focus. For instance, the writer will engage in (what I regard as) a shocking blurring of politics with theological (and even spiritual) matters in associating White's feministic-zeal with the "the work of the Holy Spirit"; something that is rarely seen even in the most zealously evangelistic circles. She exalts Ms. White as a champion for the cause of feminism, when the real story is Ms. White's role in the dynamics that existed in the holiness-movement that culminated in the advent of Pentecost in 1901 and 1906. On the other hand (and fortunately), Ms. Cunningham-Stanley addresses and seems to be objective in her treatment of the sad and disturbing-side of Ms. White's life, ministry, and relationships. There is enough in the book to give us a fair-assessment of the life and the ministry. I can (guardedly) recommend the book to the serious student of holiness and Pentecostal-history that would be disinclined to follow Ms. Cunningham-Stanley into some distorted theological-thinking. I would not recommend the book for the young or immature reader that might have difficulty discerning the chaff from the wheat.
