Phoebe Palmer

In Phoebe Palmer on Holiness, author Ruth Conlon insightfully explores the extraordinary life of 19th-century female religious pioneer Phoebe Palmer. With scholarly care and spiritual depth, Conlon chronicles Palmer’s dramatic spiritual encounter in which she felt called “to relinquish everything to God in absolute surrender.” This transformative personal breakthrough subsequently sparked a nationwide movement as Palmer began hosting small gatherings focused on promoting the theological concept of “entire sanctification.”
