"That Old-Time Religion": Aimee Semple Mcpherson and Perceptions of Pentecostalism, 1918-26
Blumhofer, Edith L.
Journal of Beliefs & Values, v25 n2 p217-227 2004
The story is told of Aimee Semple McPherson, a star female evangelist in the USA in the 1920s. Theologically and in her own understanding of doctrine she resisted denominational or classical Pentecostalism and asserted her own view, stemming from Azusa Street, that the message of Spirit baptism belonged to the church at large.
