The Women of Azusa Street by The Women of Azusa Street pays tribute to the women who played a vital role-which was typically overlooked or downplayed in literature-in the 1906 Azusa Street Revival, an event in Los Angeles that catapulted the then fledgling Pentecostal Movement into national prominence. In the wake of the 100th anniversary of the Azusa Street Revival, which was held day and night for nearly three years, Alexander reveals the fascinating stories of Holy Spirit baptized women from various racial and cultural backgrounds-who like Jesus' disciples-gave up everything and risked their lives to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. Women whose stories are told herein include: Daisy Batman, Ivy Glenshaw Campbell, Emma Cotton, Florence Crawford, Rosa de Lopez, May Evans, Lucy Farrow, Lucy Leatherman, Lillian Garr, Anna Hall, Julia Hutchins, Clara Lum, Ardella Meade, Jennie Moore Seymour, Rachel Sizelove, Mable Smith, Neely Terry, Susie Valdez, and Ophelia Wiley.
