Product Description

When Julia Duin became the new religion writer for The Houston Chronicle she was soon invited to the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer to experience its unique blend of liturgy and charismatic worship. Duin was so impressed, she was determined to tell the story of this great church along with its remarkable priest who, in 1964, led the Church of the Redeemer into a time of powerful renewal. Through her investigation, however, she found there was a darker history behind Father Pulkingham which soon revealed a scandal which rocked the charismatic, Episcopal and Christian communities. Duin provides a fascinating portrait of the renewal's glory days along with its sister movements within Catholic and Pentecostal churches. Includes 8 pages of photos.

Publisher's Description

It was the late summer of 1986 when Julia Duin moved to Houston as the new religion writer for The Houston Chronicle. At the invitation of friends, she visited the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer in Houston’s blighted East End and fell in love with its gorgeous music and charismatic worship. After she met Graham Pulkingham, the spellbinding priest who had led Redeemer into a powerful renewal starting in 1964, Duin became convinced the world needed to know the story of this gifted man and his church. As she began investigating the story, many warned her there was a darker history behind Pulkingham. Now the journalist who first broke that story reveals the details of the scandal that rocked the charismatic and Christian community movements, and the Episcopal Church. Duin provides a fascinating portrait of the glorious days of the renewal and its sister movements within Catholic and Pentecostal churches. Book includes 8 pages of photos.
