The Holiness Churches, near the turn of the 20th century, were among the most fervently pentcostal and emotional of all religions. Wh ile most Holiness Churches do not take up snakes, most snake handlers began in Holiness Churches. Rev. Hayes, the subject of this book, seems to have been a real stemwinder, who rejected many mainstream beliefs. He allowed one of his sons to die because he relied on divine healing. The book offers insight into the early years of these churches and provides a map of how Rev. Hayes traveled about to various tent revivals. Interesting material.
