About the Author
What People are Saying About This
"A lack of prominence in history books may not mean a corresponding lack of significant impact on that history. Jon Branstetter illustrates this with his well-researched story of A. M. Hills. This lesser-known revivalist offers an unusual window for getting a clearer view of the American Holiness Movement, Fundamentalism, Pentecostalism, liberalism, and the Social Gospel Movement in the early twentieth century. This reconsideration of Hill throws fresh light on Finney, Torrey, Harvard, Yale, Keswick, postmillennialism, religious higher education, revivalism, and morea virtual parade of the major players in a fractured period of American religious history."

"It has been some time since A. M. Hills's contribution to the Wesleyan-Holiness theological tradition has been brought forward for public review. Dr. Branstetter has filled this need with thorough research and reading ease. For the professional and layman alike, this work provides a welcome reminder of the impact Dr. Hills had on late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century theological development."
