Holy Rollers: Murder and Madness in Oregon's Love Cult
by T. McCracken and Robert B. Blodgett
What Can Papa Do For You?
God sent His mighty pow’r To this poor, sinful heart,
To keep me ev’ry hour, And needful grace impart;
And since His spirit came To take supreme control,
The love-enkindled flame Is burning in my soul.
’Tis burning in my soul, ’Tis burning in my soul;
The fire of heav’nly love Is burning in my soul.
The Holy Spirit it came, all glory to His name!
The fire of heav’nly love is burning in my soul.
From the Reverend Knapp’s Bible Songs of Salvation and Victory
By the time Esther emerged from the police station, several hundred people had gathered, and the authorities feared mob violence. Patrolmen were stationed at various points outside the building to keep the rabble in check if it went out of control. Matron Kelly held Esther's arm as she faced the crowd, but the young woman’s steps were firm, and it was clear that she did not want the assistance.
Sorry. I really would love to continue this chapter and give the whole book away, but I'd also really love to sell a few books to pay the bills.
