Showell provides an indispensable tool for scholars and researchers interested in contemporary Oneness Apostolic Pentecostalism that has influenced the landscape of African American religiosity. This much-needed work introduces and heralds the men and women who pioneered and shaped a movement that is home to a major segment of African American Pentecostals. 

The story of the contemporary Jesus' Name church involves an exciting journey from its roots at the Azusa Street Revival to the present. Showell's work gives a glimpse of that exciting history through the biographical sketches of its notable leaders.
