Reading Fudge's Book Again

This will be my third reading. I read it twice when I first got it when it first came out. But decided to read it through again. Though I do not agree and his bias is evident he must be commended for the hours of gathering information and putting it together. Some things I doubt their factualness not impugning him but the memory can be tricky with all of us and interviewing folks in their late years or early years for that matter all information we remember through the prisms of experiences. I am enjoying it again. I love any history of the American Jesus Name movement. Or Pentecostalism in general. I bougth several books advertized in Charisma during the time of the Azusa celebration.

Well, with your knowledge of Pentecostal history, you know many of the folks in that book. I remember you confirming the quote from Bro. Goss to Bro. Ballestero about the Baptists being in the rapture.

I know my Brother David Eckstadt spoke with him when he was researching for the book.

He asked to verify some interactions that involved my father John A Eckstadt.

My pastor will be giving me the book to read soon.

I am sure it will be interesting.

I know it has been around for a while.

i just have not read it yet.

Eld. Epley,
Did you know Bro. L.R. Ooton from Medora (I think) Indiana?
Do you know if the organization he founded, the AMA, is still in existence?
I think Bishop Howard was in that organization.
Actually, I think Bishop Howard was in several organizations during his long life time.

Bro. Epley,
Have you ever thought about writing a book?
You have a lot of memories of Pentecostal history.
I remember talking to my brother-in-law about Bro. Tom Skirvin. From my understanding, Tom and his brother Horace brought the Jesus' name message to the areas of KY and IN near Madison, IN and Carrollton, Warsaw, Sanders, Ghent, Perry Park, Bedford and other cities in KY. Bro. Gosey (who died in 1990 at the age of 90) was Tom Skirvin's brother-in-law and referred to Tom as the apostle to KY. My brother-in-law lived in Warsaw and went to Bro. Tom Skirvin's church. We talked about how someone should talk to Tom and some of the folks there about the history of the Jesus' name message in that part of the state. Well, all we did was talk and now Bro. Tom has been dead for years and that information died with him.

If I remember correctly, Dan Alicia has the Fudge book available as a pdf file and might be persuaded to email a copy as an attachment to someone who asks.

...
Has your brother said anything about how accurately or inaccurately the information he provided was presented in the book?
