  1. Edith Blumhofer

    God’s Bible School offers the perfect prism through which to explore the changing dynamics of the holiness movement. Thornton’s sympathetic history brings to life much more than an institution. The institution focuses the networks of people in a larger story that illuminates the large course of American Methodism and evangelicalism.

  2. David Bundy

    Thornton has provided both an interpretation of the history of GBS and a passionate, carefully nuanced and strategically documented history of the Wesleyan/holiness traditions in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Both he and the publisher are to be congratulated for the achievement.
