Turn the Pulpit Loose features the lives and words of eighteen women evangelists including Sojourner Truth and Evangeline Booth, and lesser-known figures such as Jarena Lee (an African Methodist from the early 1800s) and Uldine Utley (a child evangelist in the early 1900s) who helped to shape American religious life from the nation's infancy to the present. Highlighting substantial primary sources - sermons, articles, diaries, letters, speeches, and autobiographies - Priscilla Pope-Levison weaves together fascinating narratives of each woman's life: her conversion and calling to preach, her primary evangelistic method, and her reflections about women in general. This anthology, complete with photographs of each evangelist, is an indispensable resource for a wide range of academic fields, including religion, history, women's studies, and literature.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In "Turn the Pulpit Loose, Priscilla Pope-Levison challenges scholars of American history, religious studies and women's studies to engage seriously female evangelism. She offers brief but vivid portraits of an array of women evangelists-black and white, working-class and affluent, young and old, famous and forgotten-from both traditional denominations and newly-created churches. These are accompanied by a rich selection of primary sources for each evangelist, providing scholars with critical materials that demand a reassessment of the history of evangelism and of women in the nineteenth and twentieth century United States."--Nancy A. Hewitt, Rutgers University, Editor of "A Companion to American Women's History (2002)
