"Edith L. Blumhofer is to be congratulated for her detailed, scholarly study…. Aimee McPherson is an important figure in the history of North American religion and merits attention as a woman who had a major effect on our culture. Yet she has received only modest attention and nothing to match this work, distinguished as it is by a searching and comprehensive scholarship, a rare biography that exists neither to praise nor to bury its subject." — American Historical Review

"Blumhofer has written the most complete and well-grounded biography of McPherson to date…. In Blumhofer, Sister has found a scholar who has done her justice…. Blumhofer has set an admirable standard for all that would follow." — Fides et Historia

"This book is narrative history at its best, and it should appeal to both scholarly and popular audiences." — International Bulletin of Missionary Research

"The book is readable and provides an excellent introduction to this unique individual." — Provident Book Finder

"American survey instructors should consider the book as a way to introduce students to a strong female religious leader; researchers in the field will be impressed by Blumhofer's excellent bibliographical essay." — The Journal of American History

"In this engaging, well-researched, and sensitive biography, Edith Blumhofer has succeeded not only in producing a definitive work on her subject but also in opening up new ways of thinking about the popular culture of twentieth-century American Protestantism." — The Journal of Southern History
