This is arguably the most interesting read on John Alexander Dowie that you will come across. Newcomb was a Deacon in Dowie's organization, and also editor of Zion Publications. Doubtless, this put the author in close proximity with Dowie, and therefore he is able to provide us with an "inside look" that most others can only imagine.

Most interesting is the fact that this is a "fictionalized" account of the life of Dowie. This makes the book quite readable, yet does not detract from the content. In the author's own words: "The attempt here is to present an accurate—although abridged—account of the personality, words, acts, and experiences of John Alexander Dowie, and a true picture of his human and material environment. Aside from the man himself, his family, and his successor, Wilbur Glenn Voliva, all characters in the story are fiction—as are also details of conver­sations and events."

Despite all of his shortcomings, Dowie holds an important place in Pentecostal history, and carries a warning to any and all Christian workers who achieve any level of success.
