Essek William Kenyon (1867-1948) has virtually escaped scholarly notice, and yet his influence on the twentieth-century church is profound. Of particular note is Kenyon's influence on William Durham that apparently led to the first major split in Pentecostalism. Kenyon's own evangelistic work was thoroughly interdenominational, touching every major Protestant denomination of his day. E.W. Kenyon and the Postbellum Pursuit of Peace, Power, and Plenty is the most comprehensive biography of Kenyon available today. It explores his influence on the Pentecostal/Charismatic movements, and likewise illuminates the practice of intuition and mysticism from which the 20th century message of peace, power and plenty emerged. Contains nine black and white photographs, bibliography and index.

MEDIA REVIEWS
What Simmons does best is use Kenyon as a window through which to peer into the world of late-Victorian evangelicalism...Simmons has done a nice job of creatively complicating our picture of evangelical religion in the early twentieth century by showing just how fluid and amorphous was the Protestant culture of postbellum America. * Church History: Studies in Christianity and Culture *
Anyone trying to understand...new religious movements, or important elements of the religious vitality and ferment which marked the late nineteenth and early twentieth century in North America, should read this book. * Nova Religio: The Journal Of Alternative And Emergent Religions *
"Simmons has skillfully organized his material, and the extensive footnotes and selected bibliography add to the book's usefulness..." * CHOICE *
