This book was ok as it explored an era of the Big tent revival movement. I don't know much about this era as I remember a few tent revivals that happened when I was around 5 or 6. My problem with this book was that the first half was stuff that came really early in the author's life. I felt like she may have had some fuzzy memories. I also feel that she glossed over areas that I would have seen more depth about. It is an easy read where one can read in a few hours.
The author's POV is maybe not as detailed because of her age when most of the action happened. At times she admits her own fuzziness but then remembers every instant where she shows her panties. Kind of an odd memory bit. I learned from this book and actually if I wrote about my own early experience then it might be close to this. I have to say it made me sad to see a man used by God for a time who let it go to his head. I am not a fan a religious zealots like David Terrell.
