"This book is the most thorough and detailed history of Pentecostalism in any part of the UK. It deserves a place amongst the best books in the growing collection now appearing. It should stand as a model of how to write a history of any dynamic religious group. It will be a good read for the ordinary reader as well as the academic."
--Desmond Cartwright, Donald Gee Centre for Pentecostal and Charismatic Research
"I shall be glad to recommend this book to my undergraduate and postgraduate students. Jim Robinson's painstaking scholarship and vivid narrative uncover the origins and early development of Pentecostalism in Ireland while throwing light on relevant events in Europe and North America."
--William K. Kay, Centre for Pentecostal and Charismatic Studies, University of Wales
"This book fills one of the great 'missing links' of British and Irish church history. Dr Robinson writes with unrivaled knowledge, broad sympathy, and masterly insight. The content will delight all lovers of church history and a wider audience of inquisitive Christians."
--L.S. Kirkpatrick, Union Theological College, Belfast
