Synopsis

After escaping her kidnappers, Aimee was placed aboard a train to Los Angeles. Upon arrival, she was greeted by an estimated 50,000 people. 

Read of Aimee Semple McPherson’s amazing evangelistic meetings and her founding of the 5,300-seat Angelus Temple, a church still vibrant today. 

Dr. Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral, Garden Grove, California: Late one night, Dr. Schuller landed at LA International, picked up his car and began the drive home. On the radio he heard a woman preaching. So taken was he with the message that he exclaimed, "I want to get that woman to preach at my church." When the program went off the air, he realized that it had been the voice of Aimee Semple McPherson, recorded years before. (Raymond Cox p.242)  

Dr. Jack Hayford, president of the Foursquare Church International: "There are very few people who have done more to magnify the person of Jesus and win souls to Him, yet who have suffered more unfairness and criticism for doing so." (Jack Hayford, "The Legacy of Sister Aimee: Tarnished but Triumphant," Charisma and Christian Life (March 1993),  p.16) 

Author Douglas H. Rudd is a veteran Pentecostal pastor and historian. He has also written the 400-page book When the Spirit Came Upon Them, recounting early years of the Pentecostal movement in Canada.
