Aimee Semple McPherson, known as Sister Aimee or simply Sister, was a Canadian-American Pentecostal evangelist and media celebrity in the 1920s and 1930s. McPherson is credited as a pioneer in the use of media to draw on the growing appeal of popular entertainment as a means of spreading the reach of her weekly sermons from the Angelus Temple, one of the first American megachurches. In her time she was the most publicized Protestant evangelist, surpassing Billy Sunday and her other predecessors. She conducted public faith healing demonstrations before huge crowds; testimonies conveyed tens of thousands of people healed. McPherson's articulation of the United States as a nation founded and sustained by divine inspiration continues to be echoed by many pastors in churches today. Mainstream news sensationalized her misfortunes with family and church members. McPherson's preaching style, extensive charity work and ecumenical contributions were a major influence to Charismatic Christianity into the 21st century. Very good. Front hinge professionally repaired. Book presents very nicely.
