Limited Liberty:
The Legacy of Four Pentecostal Women Pioneers

Estrelda Y. Alexander

Limited Liberty: The Legacy of Four Pentecostal Women Pioneers Limited Liberty: The Legacy of Four Pentecostal Women Pioneers shares the stories of four women--Florence Crawford, Mary Magdalena Lewis Tate, Aimee Semple McPherson, and Ida Robinson--who, despite their gender, pursued their freedom to preach and defend the Christian gospel. These spirit-filled and God-led women founded denominations that still flourish, with a following of some 2 million persons: Apostolic Faith Church, Church of the Living God, The Pillar and Ground of Truth, International Church of the Foursquare Gospel and, Mt. Sinai Holy Church of America. Estrelda Y. Alexander brings new life to these Pentecostal women pioneers in their fight against marginalization.
